Hereditary

An overly emotional wife, mother and artist (Toni Collette, The Sixth Sense) dreams of getting out from under the thumb of her unstable, domineering mother. But when mom finally dies, our protagonist finds her family (distracted teenage son, seemingly autistic daughter and confused hubby Gabriel Bryne) plagued by a string of horrific tragedies. Haunted by the ghosts of Sirk, Bergman, Tarkovsky, Greenaway and Lynch, first-time filmmaker Ari Aster displays a strong visual eye and a flair for the shocking in this art house thriller—which slowly transmogrifies from dark domestic drama to pitch-black, cosmic horror. 127 minutes R.
