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-
Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.) We always have Peetimes for the latest wide release films, including OnWard, 1917, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc. You can also keep up with the latest movie news and reviews on our blog or by following us on Twitter @RunPee, and liking us on Facebook.
RunPee.com 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.
