Even if you walk into “Hereditary” thinking you’re prepared for what you see, chances are, you aren’t.
The film, a first-time feature length picture from Director Ari Aster, tells the story of the Graham family, particularly the mother, Annie (Toni Collette). The movie opens on the day of the funeral for Annie’s mother. From the start, it’s not only evident that Annie had an estranged relationship with her mother, but that there are also some dysfunctions with the rest of her family as well.
As the film moves on, the family is met with a traumatic event that triggers terrifying situations.
