Hereditary (15)

Thriller, Horror, Drama

A supernatural horror in which a woman suspects that a paranormal presence lingers after the death of her mother.

The critical consensus

Unnervingly oppressive horror featuring an astonishing Toni Collette.

****(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 31/05/2018

Collette gives a terrific, hypnotic performance as a harried mother facing down family evil in Ari Aster’s rivetingly shot horror debut.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 01/06/2018

A tour-de-force turn from Toni Collette powers one of the most affecting horrors in recent memory. Genuinely unsettling in a way few genre efforts are: you’ve been warned.

*****Matt Maytum, Total Film, 04/06/2018

A raw horror masterpiece from a first-time director that deserves to be mentioned in the same frantic breath as the genre’s greats. Even the most jaded viewer should find something in Hereditary to disturb and distress them. Enjoy?

*****Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 12/06/2018

This is serious, glorious, edge-of-your-seat horror.

*****Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 15/06/2018

Hereditary may not be as terrifying as the advance hype has suggested but it’s a provocative and subtle horror film with layers you don’t find in more conventional haunted house tales.

Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 15/06/2018

Hereditary plays with genre expectations while still offering plenty of scares.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 15/06/2018

Genuine scares give way to generic cliche in Ari Aster’s much garlanded debut feature.
