Film: Hereditary Click for more info

I went into Hereditary blind, pretty much the best way to watch any creepy scary movie. That might have been why I enjoyed it as much as I did - not knowing the premise allowed the unfolding mystery to accentuate the horror. That said, the film did seem to suffer from a bit of confusion as it struggled to make up its mind as to what it wanted it to be: was this a psychological thriller? A straight up monster flick? OR something perhaps a little more supernatural and spooky? Hereditary manages to be all three, but not always to its benefit.

There's no double that the movie was more effective on the big screen, and yet I can't quite bring myself to recommend it past a DVD release. Perhaps its one to watch if you want a good scare and have nothing else to see.
