Regular readers of Horror Freak News have already heard me singing the praises of Hereditary, a film I was lucky enough to see at SXSW last March. Comparisons to The Exorcist are not exaggerated, as I’m honestly predicting the debut feature film from Ari Aster will send some theatergoers fleeing. There are life-ruining levels of trauma awaiting those who dare subject themselves to this brutalizing masterpiece.
The latest French poster for Hereditary reflects the mind-twisted terror that will arrive in US theaters on June 8th. Have a look-see at the bottom of the article, below the film’s trailer and synopsis.
Official Synopsis: When the matriarch of the Graham family passes away, her daughter’s family begins to unravel cryptic and terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun their sinister fate.
Hereditary is written and directed by Ari Aster and features knock-out performances from Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, and Milly Shapiro.
