Storyline Heading
When the matriarch of the Graham family passes away, her daughter's family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Horror Mystery - This supernatural horror thriller unfolds slowly and feels tonally more like a serious drama, so those more interested in shocks and gore may be disappointed and older, more drama-leaning audiences may be more interested. Fans of Toni Collette will definitely enjoy this major acting showcase for her while the other more known actor in the cast, Gabriel Byrne, has a less substantial role. Language, violence, and consistently dark and disturbing subject matter make the film definitely not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Hereditary is never more than passingly frightening. The jump-scare count is low. However, although the slow-burn approach works well for a while, it ultimately goes on for too long. Poorly constructed endings can leave an unpleasant aftertaste even for movies that are otherwise mostly solid. That's the case here.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent Creepy beyond belief... The movie sustains a throb of dread throughout its first 90 minutes, and its final 30 are off-the-rails in the best way. It's been a while since I looked over my shoulder during a movie, to make sure something sinister wasn't lurking beyond my sightline, but this film made me do it.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good Hereditary isn't just a scary movie. It's much, much, much worse than that. The new instant horror classic follows along the lines of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist in crafting a visceral experience so deeply unsettling that you don't feel right afterward. Dirty, even. So unclean that a church visit wouldn't be out of the question.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good The movie builds like a gathering storm. You'll be hearing the score by saxophonist Colin Stetson in your nightmares, where the visual effects of makeup-and-prosthetics master Steve Newburn also work their dark magic. Still, Hereditary achieves its tightest hold on us, not through gore but through the violence of the mind.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 18 moviegoers:
TEENS: One female loved it, but the other two didn't care for it at all.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Three of the males loved it and the fourth, enjoyed it very much, as did both of the females.
ADULTS: Two of the four males loved it, but the other two hated it. Only one of the five females enjoyed it. These reviews certainly aren't as high as those of the critics.
