  • Posted 3 months Ago

A24 have a had a great run of movies out over the past couple of years, and they look to have another hit on their hands with Ari Aster’s debut feature film Hereditary.

Starring Toni Collette (The Sixth Sense), the story follows a family who after a recent loss discover dark and terrifying secrets about their ancestry.

The petrifying trailer you can watch for it above is seriously creepy and unnerving, and all of the reviews following its premiere at Sundance back it up by saying it’s one of the scariest films to be released in years. For more info, read the official synopsis below:

When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter’s family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.

Hereditary is out in cinemas 8 June.
