Review: Movie — Hereditary

Movie: Hereditary – Terrifying and outstanding in all its complexities. The narrative brilliantly interweaves the dark complexities of psychological character elements and transforms them into actual heightened nightmarish fears and a metaphorical horror story that peels paint off your walls. Ari Aster is someone I plan to put on my ‘must watch all’ list. Toni Collette is outstanding and gives a phenomenal performance on the complexities of the mother/daughter relationships and motherhood in general; her facial expressions alone should earn her an Oscar. Alex Wolff is stunning; you feel his vulnerability and fear and trauma at being a child in such disturbing familial situations. How Hereditary, Ari Aster, Toni Collette, and Alex Wolff did not garner any major award nominations shows how ridiculously obtuse the awards process is for the horror genre. This movie is easily one of my favorites of all time.
