The Hollywood Reporter concludes by calling it "an immaculately crafted, black-hearted horror-in-the-home fantasia that, like its director, is destined to make a mark." The New Yorker says, "“Hereditary” is far more upsetting than it is frightening, and I would hesitate to recommend it to the readily traumatized" and cautions against seeing it if you're recovering from trauma.
Time Out calls it "A harrowing story of unthinkable family tragedy that veers into the realm of the supernatural". Roger Ebert's site gives it a full 4 stars and says, "The movie sustains a throb of dread throughout its first 90 minutes, and its final 30 are off-the-rails in the best way." Rotten Tomatoes has a critics consensus score of 89%.
This one doesn't sound as interesting as the one I watched yesterday. I don't have prime or Netflix, so I'm limited in what I can watch.ReplyDelete
I liked this one better, actually. There are a lot of movies online at Youtube, Daily Motion, Tubi, Crackle... but I hafta say we're getting our money's worth out of Netflix and Prime lolDelete
I think I'll pass on this one. HAppy Sunday.ReplyDelete
I understand. The horror genre is just a place some people don't want to go.Delete
Oh yessssss, this is a fabulously scary movie. Everyone did an excellent acting job and there are some good twists. Thanks for reminding me of this one.ReplyDelete
I was surprised to like it so much :) Glad you agree!Delete
...I have too much tension in my life at the moment, maybe later.ReplyDelete
It's a different kind of tension, though. I find it a welcome distraction lolDelete
I think I'll ask Himself is we can watch thisReplyDelete
I hope you enjoy it :)Delete
I have no fun in horror this year, too much of that all around and everywhere! ValerieReplyDelete
I find it somehow a comfort... I'm so dreading this election :(Delete
An interesting review. I'm sort of with Valerie. Horror isn't working for me this year -- we are seeing it on the news all day ever day!ReplyDelete
I think that's why I've been watching _more_ horror this year lolDelete
