Try watch the trailer for 'Herditary' without flinching , early reviews are calling it the horror of 2018

trailer 01/02/2018

We may only be one month through 2018, but we could well already have the horror of the year on our hands. 

'Hereditary' is the feature debut for writer and director Ari Aster and it absolutely spooked the shit out of the Sundance Festival. 

Unnerving in all the ways a good horror ought to be though. The films already scored a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.  

Time Out film editor Joshua Rothkopf said: "A harrowing story of unthinkable family tragedy that veers into the realm of the supernatural, Hereditary takes its place as a new generation's The Exorcist - for some, it will spin heads even more savagely."

Check out the trailer above. It's hitting US cinemas in June, a NZ release date hasn't been announced, although likely sometime midway through this year.
