Hereditary (2018) Movie Review: Ari Aster Will Scare You

Have you ever been in a dark room where you see, maybe, a lamp and think that it was a person, and get scared? Or, have you ever got hypersensitive to things around you after watching a scary movie that you start to imagine things which are not really there, and somewhere, it makes you doubt your self? Well, if you want to be scared like that, then this movie is for you.

It has been a long time since I have watched a good horror movie that kept me awake all night and no, I am not exaggerating. The visuals in this movie are so meticulously planned and shot that one will keep thinking about them even after the movie is over. Directed by a debutante, Ari Aster, this movie is the next best movie after ‘The Conjuring’, though it does not follow the same scare tactics.

Initially, when the movie starts, it does not even feel like a horror movie. It feels like a usual drama film where the family deals with the recent death of a family member (grandmother) and other unsolved relationship problems. However, slowly, the movie turns towards the supernatural and horror genre. This movie is extremely well shot and directed. The characters try to keep it together and stay normal, but every time they try doing that, some undefined force forces them to lose their mental peace, and every time it increases in its intensity. By the end, this movie gets exceedingly scary, and the tempo increases, which resultantly, makes it more exciting and scary. In fact, by the end, I got so scared that I snapped shut the laptop screen. Then, of course, I unfolded the screen again and completed the movie, but for that time, I was really scared.

I have been a fan of Toni Collette since the movie Little Miss Sunshine. In this movie, as well, her performance was remarkable. Milly Shapiro, the extremely talented actor and singer, gave an extraordinary performance. Other actors, like Alex Wolff and Gabriel Byrne, also performed well.

So, if you are looking for some excitement, and also, if you are bored of the usual action, comedy, and romantic films then this is a movie that you need to watch to shake things up. Further, if you are a fan of nice, visually appealing movies, this movie is sure to withstand your expectations.
