Watch This Disturbing Short From the Director of HEREDITARY!

06 June 2018

With a mere day to go before HEREDITARY finally opens in Australian cinemas, we thought we’d counter the wait with a look at writer/director Ari Aster’s short film, THE STRANGE THING ABOUT THE JOHNSONS.

Even horror fans should beware here: the film covers some pretty confronting subject matter and it certainly proves Aster’s unique talent for horror.

THE STRANGE THING ABOUT THE JOHNSONS is best to go into cold, so go ahead and watch it here. . .if you feel up to it:

Those with a taste for more sickness should be more than satisfied when HEREDITARY hits cinemas Thursday June 7th!

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.
