(NATIONAL) -- You say you like scary movies? Then grab your pants and get ready to dance because this one just might give you a heart attack and hardening of the arteries at the same time.
Theres a scary new horror flick on the horizon and its generating huge buzz off its debut at a film festival.
The British newspaper The Independent says its, unanimously touted as the scariest (movie) in years following its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.
Its called Hereditary and its a new entry from the same folks (distribution company called A24) that brought you The Witch, the Green Room and Greta Gerwig's Oscar-nominated Lady Bird.
The film is directed by Ari Aster and stars Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne and The Handmaid's Tale star Ann Dowd as family members who have a secret but they dont know that until there is a death in the family.
Heres the story line: When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, kicks the bucket her daughters family starts to unravel some weird facts about their ancestry. The more they find out, the more they find themselves trying to come to grips with what they have all inherited. And it ain't pretty.
USA Today says, If you'd ever like to sleep again, then you should probably steer clear of A24's latest horror offering. Hereditary, which flew in under the radar on the Sundance Film Festival lineup, is the paralyzing feature-film debut of shorts director Ari Aster, who wrote the script four years ago amid unspecified family turmoil.
Over at the Verge.com they say, "Hereditary picked up a reputation early on at Sundance 2018 as an exceptionally scary horror film, and its a particularly terrific experience in a packed theater. Asters story about a haunted family and a mysterious legacy is packed with jump-scares, but it also builds up the kind of slow-burn, nearly unbearable tension that can leave an entire theater holding their collective breath.
The bible of show business Variety says, Its a freaky trance-out of a supernatural thriller, all about a family thats being torn apart by ghosts, and its full of things that would look right at home in the megaplex horror-film-of-the-week taken on its own terms Hereditary may be the most exciting movie Ive seen at Sundance this year what viewers will discover is that the movie, unlike almost every mainstream horror film you see these days, has the substance to match its scares. It gets at something sophisticated: the way that mental and emotional damage becomes part of a familys spirit, and is therefore passed on as if it were a spirit.
Hot dang, hop nail if anything that bad boys gonna sail!
No word on a release date but you can put solid money there's gonna be looooong long lines waitin to get in into the movie house when it arrives in your town
And remember kids, you read it here first.
I love Toni Collette......................
As long as it’s not as lethal as the killer joke...
We haven’t had any really good scary horror movies since The Ring.......................
They are working very hard to look unhappy.
Top 5 truly scary horror flicks that left you emotionally jumbled for days after?
I personally don’t do them. The abominable snowman in the old Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer freaked me out long ago.
Glad to hear someone else was traumatized by that thing.
have you seen “The Conjuring” ?
Scared the S#it out of me.
That's pretty much been my gold standard for cinematic horror ever since.
Is it safe to just say the punchline..........Awful!
I remember when Jaws came out. Mild now but not at the time.
I like Toni Collette and Gabriel Byrne. And I love horror movies. If its in a theater close to me, I may actually go to see it in the theater. If not, I’ll have something good to watch on cable in a couple months.
Yes, I did not scare easily............
NOTHING would be as scary as President Hillary Clinton.
Still scary if you live by the ocean..............Part of Jaws 2 was filmed here in Destin...............
I won’t see or read any Exorcist-like stories as I believe real evil spirits can take advantage of an opening created by fictional ones. It’s like fertilizer for the occult.
Can't be worse than original sin.
CNN is too scary for me.
Watch it with a friend...............
