July 27 – August 2
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.

“In its sense of poisoned family bloodlines, of the everyday invaded by unspeakable evil, of bonechilling terror you won’t be able to shake, Hereditary is a new horror landmark. Toni Collette should have Oscar calling.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“Toni Collette’s work as a mother who’s jolted between grief, anxiety and rage…is one for the ages, belonging in the same breath as Linda Blair in The Exorcist and Sissy Spacek in Carrie.” – Andrew Lapin, NPR
“[Hereditary is] a movie so horrifying and good that you have to see it, even if you shouldn’t want to, even if you might never sleep peacefully again.” – Jake Coyle, Associated Press
