HAPPY OCTOBER, HORROR NERDS! Let’s get this freak show on the road!
31 Nights of Horror VII, Night 1: Hereditary
Three sentence review:
I deliberately protect myself from hype, and Hereditary was oozing it after it premiered at Sundance earlier this year. I am ecstatic that this movie and horror in general is getting so much attention right now, but I didn’t love it. Toni Collette is amazing and the somberness really is intense, but my mind wandered elsewhere during the many slow parts and pretty soon I was ready to get on with the movie’s ending (which for all due credit was actually pretty superb).
