When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter’s family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell. Starring Toni Collette, Milly Shapiro, Gabriel Byrne.
“HEREDITARY is a new horror landmark that puts a unique face on things that go bump in the night.”
“If you’re the kind of horror nerd whose cage gets especially rattled by séances, shock scares, and the supernatural, you’re in for a hell of a time.” (Entertainment Weekly)
“HEREDITARY, the debut feature from Ari Aster, has an ambitious energy, a sense that the creaky old machinery of horror can be adapted to new and exciting uses.” (The NYTimes)
