Hereditary ★★★★

Ari Aster plays with genre tropes here in an unconventional way, attempting to blend horror with family tragedy while exploring themes such as grief and mental illness as well as creating an uncanny atmosphere through ominous music and skillful cinematography. And although the relentless misery and slow pace can make Hereditary lose its steam after a while, it is further elevated by Toni Collette’s tremendous performance.
