Scariest movie? Is that why the whole audience in the cinema I went to had to laugh at the big finale? The CGI was laughable too.

For me ......This movie was shit. Aimless, painful and boring....yes boring. This is movie is not scary. I watched for an hour before walking out- first time in 26 years. It just sucked.
AnnaBanana 55 (5 hours ago)
I've seen this movie and the reviews are a lie. It's seriously not that scary at all. I love scary movies and this didn't even make me jump at all. I'd give it 2 stars...and that's being generous.
Calum Nesbitt (4 hours ago)
literally one of the biggest points made in this video was that the movie isn't reliant on cheap tactics like jumpscares. The intent was to build a dark atmosphere of dread that good classic horror movies contain

This movie was trash. The pacing was too slow, and I felt no emotion for the characters at all. Admittedly the film does make good with the twist and score was excellent, but there was nothing about it that made me as a viewer feel scared or really moved at all. The audience was either laughing at the cheesiness or bored through almost the entire thing and no one left feeling unsettled, just confused and robbed of our time.

Top 1 reason I will never ever trust any opinion ever coming from this channel AND UNSUSCRIBING for telling awful lies FOR MONEY: THIS MOVIE IS UTTER CRAP BIG TIME

I watched it with some friends when it came out. The trailer makes the film look ok and not that scary. But flip the switch, and when you watch Hereditary it’s fucking terrifying. Psychologically is horrific, messes with your mind a ton, and the elements in the film make for an intense night at the movies.
Moto Boy (15 hours ago)
you mean the worst movie in this year

Also the film Siccin is much better then Hereditary!

I didn't like the fact the movie cheapened the impact the cult had on the family. It was the main plot behind it but it got reduced to a less than one minute book flip and a necklace
Anika Quaiser (18 hours ago)
No it’s not.

Quite frankly this film is the biggest pile of dog shite ever, it must rank in the top 2 worst films I've ever seen, save your money and go sit in an A+E waiting room or watch some paint dry for 2hrs as it will be more entertaining. I feel sorry for alot of the people in the cinema with me today as there was a bunch of about 15 teenagers that must have wondered what the hell they had paid to come and see. As everyone was leaving everyone was saying the same, what a load of rubbish. Save your money, don't do it!!! I read a review from some newspaper that said it was the scariest horror of the decade and it was a real brown trouser moment, you sir need to get out more and stop watching Pepa Pig if you think this was scary.
Daniel Selk (22 hours ago)

I heard people snoring they only awoke because of a big noise on screen (nice tactic for such borefests) You were probably standing up while watching or paid to leave such a fake comment, Edge of your seat hahaha

I'm so happy I didn't spend money on this. Not only was it a slow beginning, but made no sense whatsoever. Wait until it comes on DVD if you must watch it.
Sinjin Smyth (18 hours ago)
too much truth all in one go!! Wonder why is was falsely overrated. this was not a horror. only horror was the price i had to pay for popcorn

This was so creepy just by the accident and the way the brother was such in shock he just went to bed and laid there till the mother found her headless. Then the last part when he woke up in the dark to be chased by his demonic mom ugh.

Rotten Tomato viewers was right. Dumb ending,
Sinjin Smyth (18 hours ago)
it was a film about depression, i hear the sequel will about a woman on her periods.
Just saw it, scariest? Nah. Not my cup of tea. But the performances, yes, those were award worthy
Sinjin Smyth (18 hours ago)

Not scary at all. Stupid movie.
IMDB 7.8 if you considered that horror genre usually rated more strict by the viewers relative to other genres because there is no consensus on what is "scary" 7.8 is more like 10/10!

imdb is a joke

Terrible film, watched it yesterday, expecting to be scared shitless walked out of the movie and forgot about it five minutes later... a waste of time you won't get back!
Sinjin Smyth (18 hours ago)
Exactly what i had thought, but why so over-rated?? Boring and NOT a horror.
Schehrazad A (2 days ago)
But it isn’t though and the fact y’all have to explain reasons why says it all. It should take home a hefty award for cinematography and that accident scene was brutal, however, this film is completely glorified. In my opinion, (assuming they’ll go head-to-head) it pales in comparison to A Quiet Place. It’s John Krasinski’s year. If we’re specifying Psychological Horror (and barely I don’t know why folks insist it is), I can name a few recent films that surpass it in most ways listed — The Babadook and Baskin being two. Pseudo-fanatics most probably don’t know the second film I mentioned, the same ones hyping this film up. I don’t imagine a true Horror fanatic would disagree with me.
Sinjin Smyth (18 hours ago)
they guy that made it must be connected because no way those reviews/hype is genuine!

I’m gonna watch it with demi Ritson and johanne Walden
Noyze (2 days ago)
One of the scariest movies I’ve ever seen in my life but I wouldn’t recommend this to everyone, because it’s very different from most horror movies coming out today. You’re not gonna get any scene where there’s a fake jump scare followed by a comedic moment to ease the audience. Something bad is happening and you know it’s gonna get worse.
Sinjin Smyth (18 hours ago)
its not a horror its about Depression being passed on and the sequel will be about a womans periods the director said so

It wasn't really scary, but it was a really great movie.
spookym123 (2 days ago)
From the trailer and a cast that included Toni Collette and Gabriel Byrne, I was expecting a "smart" horror movie. This film pulls out every cliche, along with every predictable plot device and line, in the horror movie book, complete with annoyingly stupid characters, capped off by a been-there-done-that ending. "Scary" didn't even enter the picture.
mary Ellen (2 days ago)
In the end people just have different feelings about what is scary. But answer this. Would you watch it again? I personally wouldn't

I watched it and was not that scary at all. The Conjuring in my opinion was by far scarier.
Demetrius McCray (2 days ago)
This is a good film but it’s not a horror movie, it’s not scary at all. It’s just really deep and clever writing. It’s not a horror film, please leave the genre to actual horror directors and lovers of the genre.
Sinjin Smyth (18 hours ago)
it was about Depression and the sequel will be about a woman's periods. Not a horror, i agree
"The scariest movie since the exorcist." more like "the slowest movie since salems lot"

Not scary and a awful movie, my opinion though.

Nelson queeseso (2 days ago)
I don't think it was really scary. But I think it was an excellent horror film. By the way , it should get some academy nominations. Including best actress for Toni Collete.
Sinjin Smyth (18 hours ago)
Toni Collete is a always awesome and wonderful actress but this film was a horror like Schindlers List was a comedy

urizen (2 days ago)
wtf? all these things are crap. Exactly like this shitty movie. It;s sooooo bad. And for the record: there's almost none this girl in the movie. And trailer has literally all good scenes.
I went to see this movie yesterday and I was so disappointed... Although the acting was absolutely amazing, I expected so much better. The only scary thing about it was seeing naked old people and the girls head on the road. Everything else was just pointless and the plot was so confusing. One moment they try to kill Peter and the next he's their leader? At the end of the movie everyone started laughing because all they heard was me in the front say "What the fuck was this shit?"

Why do people keep complaining about it being SLOW? To me, the movie was well paced at storytelling and character buildup. And every minute of the film was loaded with creepy messages. It was not SLOW at all.
Sinjin Smyth (18 hours ago)
People were snoring in the next row and we were laughing at that - it was so much more fun that this SHITFEST. Not a horror, it was about DEPRESSION
