Movie Review – Hereditary

Hereditary wasn’t terrible. I was really on the fence about seeing this movie. The trailers made it look really good but I’ve been burned by that so many times I’ve lost count.

I’m not a fan of A24 — the company that released the movie. I haven’t liked a single one of their movies. So I felt almost compelled to see this movie and prove myself wrong. Maybe they can make a movie I like?

They pretty much made me eat my words on this movie. It was decent. The acting was great, the story was really intense and the mood almost makes you shiver. I felt it could have been slightly shorter, but I see why they did it. They were creating the right mood. It worked. I don’t know if everyone will like this movie, but it was worth the price of my ticket.

Movie Grade: B-

Christene Johnson (RunPee Sis) owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.

Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.

  1. Decent scary movie. No slasher flick. Moody intense supernatural thriller with great acting. I would have liked more jump scares. Ending was odd. One scene, my favorite in the movie, freaked me out totally. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed the movie. I found it to be quirky and unique. I wouldn’t call it a horror movie…it’s definitely a psychological mind bender. I did learn one thing…never stick your head out of a moving vehicle. Thank you for your comment and your usage of the Runpee app. Have a great day.
