Spotlight: Live Earth's Celebrity Supporters 15 September Look to the Stars. The film mixed traditional elements of domestic familial dramas and strained relationships with traditional elements, and the product is as much a hair raising drama as much as it is a psychological horror film, displaying a level of craft by Aster that is rare for these movies. Of course, there are no common characters or intertwining story threads, but the thematic core of both the films, also including some stylistic choices, remains essentially the same.
Both films masquerade as terrifying horror flicks, albeit under this guise, one is a family drama, and the other, a messed up relationship drama. And thematic ties became apparent to me. Cinemark Coming Soon.

Hereditary is a American psychological horror film written and directed by Ari Aster in his directorial debut. It stars Toni Collette , Alex Wolff , Milly Shapiro , and Gabriel Byrne as the members of a family haunted by a mysterious presence after the death of their secretive grandmother.
Aster's short film work attracted the attention of A24 , who greenlit Hereditary as his first feature film. Aster conceived it as primarily a family drama and a story consisting of two distinct halves. Filming took place in Utah in , with most indoor scenes filmed on custom built sets on a sound stage to give the film a dollhouse aesthetic.
Hereditary premiered on January 21, , in the Midnight section at the Sundance Film Festival  and was theatrically released in the United States on June 8, It is considered by many to be one of the greatest horror films of all time. Miniature artist Annie Graham lives with her psychiatrist husband Steve, their year-old son Peter, and their year-old daughter Charlie. The family attends the funeral of Annie's secretive mother, Ellen, and Annie is surprised at the number of people in attendance.
Annie attends a bereavement support group, revealing she and her mother had a fraught relationship until Charlie was born, when Ellen became a significant figure in raising her. Meanwhile, Steve gets a phone call during a conversation with Annie telling him that Ellen's grave was desecrated by unknown perpetrators, but he doesn't tell her.
Peter is invited to a party, and Annie insists on Charlie going with him. On the way to the party, the siblings pass a telephone pole with an old sigil carved into it.
At the party, Peter leaves Charlie unattended and Charlie, who has a severe nut allergy, eats chocolate cake containing walnuts and goes into anaphylactic shock. As Peter drives Charlie to the hospital, she leans out of the window for air; when Peter swerves to avoid a dead deer, she is decapitated by the sigil telephone pole.
In shock, Peter drives home and leaves Charlie's body in the car, where it is discovered by Annie the following morning. The family is fractured following Charlie's death: Peter becomes reclusive and wracked with guilt, Annie becomes angry and resentful towards Peter, and Steve tries to mediate peace between the two.
Annie befriends support group member Joan. Joan teaches Annie to perform a séance to communicate with Charlie, and later that night, Annie convinces her family to attempt the séance. Objects begin to move and break, and Peter is petrified when Annie begins speaking in Charlie's frightened voice until Steve douses her with water.
As Peter begins to be plagued by supernatural forces, Annie suspects Charlie's spirit has become malevolent. When she sees images in Charlie's sketchbook that appear to threaten Peter, she throws the book into the fireplace, but her clothes start to burn along with the book, only extinguishing when she removes the book from the fire.
Annie goes through her mother's old belongings and finds a photo album featuring pictures of Joan and Ellen together, despite Joan claiming she never knew Annie's mother. Ellen is revealed to have been Queen Leigh, the leader of an ancient witch coven. Annie also discovers a book with information about a demon king named Paimon which states that King Paimon wishes to inhabit the body of a male host and the person who summoned the King of the Demons will be given riches and rewards. Annie then finds Ellen's body in the attic along with occultist symbols.
While Peter is outside his school, Joan appears and attempts to expel his spirit from his body for the demon king. In class, he is taken over by a strong unseen force and slams his head against his desk. Annie informs Steve of her discoveries and implores Steve to burn the sketchbook. When Steve accuses Annie of being unwell, Annie seizes the book and throws it into the fireplace, but as it burns, Steve erupts into flames.
As Annie looks on, she becomes possessed by King Paimon himself. Peter awakens to find his father's charred corpse by the fire and nude coven members in the house, before a possessed Annie chases him into the attic. Peter watches Annie decapitate herself with a piano wire before diving out of the attic window to escape.
As Peter lies on the ground Paimon possesses him, and Annie's headless corpse levitates into Charlie's treehouse. The now-possessed Peter follows his mother's body into the treehouse. There, he finds Joan, other coven members, the headless corpses of his mother and grandmother, and Charlie's crowned, severed head resting atop a mannequin.
Joan appears and places the crown upon Peter's head. She addresses him as Charlie, swears an oath to him as Paimon and declares that he is now free to rule over the coven. As the cult members chant "Hail Paimon," Peter stares blankly ahead. Ari Aster has an uncredited voice cameo as Annie's boss, who calls to offer support after the tragedy she has been experiencing. Kathleen Chalfant makes an uncredited appearance as Ellen Taper Leigh, Annie's mother. Aster refers to her as "the sweetest person in the world".
Writer-director Ari Aster embarked on a career in the film industry while a student at the American Film Institute ; he scripted and directed two provocative short films, The Strange Thing About the Johnsons and Munchausen , bringing him under the scope of A The script reflects a real-life incident from in Marietta, Georgia, in which John Kemper Hutcherson accidentally decapitated his childhood friend and passenger, Frankie Brohm, on a telephone pole, after the latter had leaned his head from the vehicle to relieve the symptoms of his inebriation.
Hutcherson then drove home with Brohm's headless corpse in the car and fell asleep, until a passerby, walking with his toddler, noticed Brohm's body still in the truck the next morning and notified authorities. Toni Collette was one of the first actresses Aster sought for the role of Annie Graham, a miniaturist and the matriarch of the Graham family. Gabriel Byrne agreed to play the family's patriarch Steve; Alex Wolff , who previously collaborated with Byrne in the HBO program In Treatment was cast as the Grahams' son Peter.
The film began shooting in February in Utah. The exteriors of the Graham family house and the tree house were shot in Summit County , Utah, and the cemetery scene was filmed at Larkin Sunset Gardens in Sandy, Utah.
The school scenes were shot at West High School and Utah State Fairpark , but all other interiors including both versions of the treehouse were built from scratch on a sound stage.
Since each of the rooms was built on a stage, walls could be removed to shoot scenes at a much greater distance than a practical location would allow, creating the dollhouse aesthetic of the film. Aster said that during filming, "Alex Wolff told me not to say the name of William Shakespeare's Scottish play out loud because of some superstitious theater legend.
I smugly announced the name, and then one of our lights burst during the shooting of the following scene. Hereditary premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 21, According to a report in The Sydney Morning Herald , the Hereditary preview was accidentally shown to family audiences and created a small panic in the theater.

The film was released in the United States by A24 on June 8, It was released in the United Kingdom by Entertainment Film Distributors on June 15, It was also the widest-ever release for an A24 film with 2, theaters, besting the 2, of It Comes at Night.

But first, you'll scream your bloody head off. Club , A. Remarkably, it's a first feature, the auspicious debut of writer-director Ari Aster, whose acclaimed, disturbing short films were all leading, like a tunnel into the underworld, to this bleak vision.
