About this Film


ODEON says...
Are you brave enough to enter into the nightmare?

'Hereditary’ chronicles the lives of the Graham family, whose matriarch Ellen has just passed away. And in the wake of her death, the rest of them grapple with their inheritance.

Ellen’s daughter Annie, her husband and their two children begin to discover frightening secrets about their ancestry, and the more they learn, the worse it gets. And the darkness they discover seems to centre on their teenage daughter, of whom Ellen was particularly fond…

A blood-curdling, critically-acclaimed horror from debut director Ari Aster, ‘Hereditary’ is a portrait of family history that takes a turn for the terrifying.

garbage, boring

Reviewer: GingersnapcatDate: 2018-06-20

up there with the vvitch for dullest film ever made. A new genre of horror where for hours nothing happens, set it to doom music and some people think they have witnessed a masterpeice. The people around me either laughed or tutted at the ending.

absolutely pants!

Hereditary A horror film that made no sense while I watched it. It starts of as family being terrorized by something and then shifts to something about demon worship and just a bunch of weird stuff. I'd avoid, personally. Not a good movie at all.

Boring, too long

Reviewer: Joe 90Date: 2018-06-17

I don't understand the hype around this film. Recent horrors I've enjoyed are the Insidious films, Conjuring and Babadook. Babadook is particularly good and also features parent/child relationship issues. Hereditary is comparatively rubbish.
