It’s far and between that I watch a horror movie trailer, and then re-watch about five more times quickly after. Such is the case for the new trailer for the film written and directed by Ari Aster called Hereditary. Just the tease alone, that you’ll see below, made me want to go take a shower.
Not even sure where to begin with this one. But first, yes – the buzz is already very strong on Hereditary thanks to it’s screening at Sundance last month. Being toted as ‘This generation’s Exorcist‘, those are obviously very strong words. Judging from the trailer though, that might not be crazy talk.
The visuals incorporating the dollhouse into real life are stunning, as is the last half where we see horrible things. Horrible, horrible things. A kid bashing his head against a desk, creepy crawlies crawling all over someone, a person engulfed in flames, and some serious chopping with a kitchen knife. All of this is accompanied by some unnerving music that sets the tone for what this movie experience is going to be like. Hereditary opens on June 8th. Make sure you bring an extra pair of underwear to the screening though. I’m thinking you might need it.
