Has the scariest film of 2018 already premiered?
Coming out of the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, everybody was pretty much in agreement on one thing: This movie called Hereditary is on the way, and it’s going to freak you the fuck out.
Here’s the trailer for what The A.V. Club called “the most traumatically terrifying horror movie in ages.” As far as trailers go, this is a pretty persuasive argument in itself.
There’s not a lot to go on here, story-wise, which is just the way I like it when it comes to mysterious horror movies. What we do know is Toni Collette plays Annie, a woman who just recently lost her mother (death; scary), has a proclivity for dollhouses (scarier still), and fears something dark and supernatural has spread throughout her family, including her own children (ahh shit). Also, Ann Dowd’s in it. Not scary in and of itself but definitely exciting, and she can be very intimidating.
