Sundance Breakout Horror HEREDITARY Trailer Drop!
Utah’s Sundance Film Festival this year played host to a number of genre film world premieres including THE EYES OF MY MOTHER filmmaker Nicolas Pesce’s latest, PIERCING and THE GREASY STRANGLER mastermind Jim Hosking’s AN EVENING WITH BEVERLY LUFF LINN but the biggest buzz film to emerge has been HEREDITARY.
When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter’s family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.
No word as yet as to who has acquired HEREDITARY for Australia but as soon as we find out you’ll be the first to hear!
