Review of Hereditary (2018) by Sebastian K — 15 Jun 2018
Many Pro's & Con's to this film. In the end however, the Cons just dominate. The good: The acting, casting, writing, and cinematography were all exceedingly fantastic. Toni Collete did a masterful job in her role.
..absolutely perfect. But...the story was more confusion than terror. I felt the spine-tingles a scant three brief moments and that was it. The investment of sitting through the long long character buildup and so forth was NOT rewarded in the end.
It felt hollow, and kind of out of left field. In all honesty, I felt cheated by the entire film. Artistically intelligent and masterfully wrought...but the substance of it was crap. I will never watch it again, if that gives you some insight as to how I felt about it.
