Scary? Try boring

Halfway through the movie I thought there was a chance it could be a huge build up to an amazingly scary ending but unfortunately I was very wrong. The theater was silent for at least the first half of the movie in pure anticipation. There was a genuine sense up build up to the scenes leading up to the ending. However the ending fell flat and the audience erupted into laughter. As far as I am concerned the movie was hilarious and not worth the movie nor a second viewing. You have to really really be into and heavily invested into some weird ass cult shit to have found this movie scary at all.
Warren Parham (14 days ago)
What a joke, that movie "SUCKED ROYALLY" I can't figure out who could have possibly been scared by that crap. And I am not talking about Jump Scares either, which is something that movie could have used. Oh, something horrific did happen which definitely bothered me, but that was it. Nothing else happened in that movie. What a waste of a Good Movie night. But to each his/her own, and to those of you who liked it, I respect your opinion. but in my opinion, it sucked.
This was the worst movie I’ve ever seen
Miss Lunari (15 days ago)
i honestly was so dissapointed when i saw this movie. just the misleading trailer was enough me and my friends sat there just laughing at the movie instead of being scared in any kind of way the acting was great but some of the scenes were so stupidly funny my opinion! < i didn't think this movie was scary at all but it keeps getting called the scariest movie of 2018 and i think i'll never understand why>

This movie was such a pleasant surprise. I came there, prepared for the shitty jumpscare horror that all horror movies are nowadays, and was more or less planning to have fun with the audiences reactions to the scares. My mum forced me to watch it with her soo,,,, hah. Buut then I got far too busy with the movie itself, because 1. it had, like, almost no jumpscares. There was like, what, 3-4 in total? And they were nice n evenly placed. So nobody was screaming, nobody was jumping. Easier to focus on the movie then. 2. it was an actual psychological horror at first? It turned around at the end there but after,,, uh,,, Twist 1?? It seemed more psychological. And I *love* psychological horror. So yes, watching it was interesting. I loved that you actually had to think, read, remember, theorize... You know, use your brain, while watching. And me, my mum and a friend, we actually discussed it for like half an hour after the movie. *That's* the sort of stuff I wanna see, movies that makes you think and that you can discuss about, give different viewpoints etc. It's sad that most people are like "Jumpscares=Scary. Too little scares makes the movie bad" nowadays... And I'm 16, I should be one of them... Huh
John Burden (16 days ago)
The acting was no doubt really good, but to be honest I wasn't blown away by this movie. didn't think it was scary at all. It ended at bit on the strange side! You simply can't compare this to The Excorcist or The Grudge for that matter.
Magnus Cholok Mauser (18 days ago)
That film was AMAZING, but i had one problem with it. I have read some books about demonology & black magic back then, and already knew that seal of Paimon, so I've accidentaly spoiled the ending to me

kvngdell23 (20 days ago)
worst movie I ever seen in my life!
etru6 (21 days ago)
It was pretty good, but not amazing. I think we have reached a point where horror has gotten so formulaic and boring that any horror movie that is even somewhat original and interesting just gets fawned over by critics and fans as the best thing ever. When was the last time we saw a horror movie that was truly on par with something like "The Exorcist", or Kubrick's "The Shining"? The last such movie I can think of was "Pan's Labyrinth" 12 years ago, and it's a slight stretch to even call that horror.

Can’t wait to watch it

I didnt even get scared.What's the point then?The point is that i wasted 2 hours of my life watching this movie, thinking it was good.

i wouldnt call it the scariest, i would call it unsettling and super sad, and from the beginning, the mom's hobby of painting miniatures of real life events, is just plain weird, and everything else that follows is so strange and upsetting

I loved it.
g4insbourg (25 days ago)
yaaaas colin stetson! i love his music and i loved the film. felt kinda bummed because i've only recognized his remarkable sax chords at the very end of the movie... it was a very confusing moment because i didn't know if i should feel surprised for realizing it was him or horrified by that grotesque end scene lol
iaquil (26 days ago)
It´s not that scary at all: slow, boring during the most part and an over explained ending. This video is misleading and exaggerates a lot. I forgot about it once I got out of the movie theater...

Mary Catherine Lopez (27 days ago)
We all have different opinions and that's okay. I must say that I understand that this movie wasn't for everyone. Even though I anticipated the ending and saw a lot of the twists and turns coming, something can be said for how different and revolutionary this film is. The portrayal of true grief has never been done like this before. The cinematography and mixture of sound was drawing. The subject matter was unique even though the film makers drew inspiration from Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist. The family setting was so realistic, yet bizarre and very dynamic. The execution of the film relied solely on the psychological side without many jump scares (which I find pretty boring- let's save those for teen screams). The blend of drama slowly turning into horror is truly brilliant. I personally love films that deal with "beyond the world" themes and "beyond your control" which is blatantly stated in it's title. If something is inherited you have no choice! This film's style reminded me a lot of The Witch except this film felt more realistic and more relate-able (probably due to the time setting). Movies that drop hints and keep the audience on their toes deeply interests me and this film delivered that. I was never bored, I hardly laughed-I don't care if a film's effects look weird or cheesy- it's not about that to me. It's about the effect it is having on the characters involved. It almost felt like this movie wasn't for the audience- that it was only for the lives of the family involved. And that had me feeling like I was peeping into their lives without permission. To truly enjoy what this film is I believe a person has to have a high level of emotional maturity- and there is nothing wrong or right about having a high or low emotional maturity- I just wanted to say that because I know some people will be offended by that statement (which is my opinion). I don't particularly enjoy body horror films (unless they have gripping stories) so maybe that makes me weak in that the sight of blood makes me queasy. I'll never be a doctor and save lives OH WELL just like someone who has a lower emotional intelligence will probably never be a successful therapist. But there's nothing WRONG with that. But anyway: WOW what a treat this film is. I could really go on and on. What a true horror masterpiece. Definitely in my top 5... damn maybe even top 3 favorite horror flicks. (also just want to clarify that horror and scary mean different things. I expected the film to be more scary than it was because of the trailers but it WAS truly horrifying). Damn. 10/10
Dope JKT (28 days ago)
Agreed. The scariest horror movie this year so far. It’s very disturbing, it has all the creepy elements. Great job!

Not scary at all which tells me WatchMojo got paid to make this video. The scariest thing about this movie is there are people who watched it and were actually scared - weak.

Matthew Pirante-Perez (1 month ago)
I saw this movie four (yes, count them) four times in the cinemas. Toni Collette is largely responsible for the film's success. It's like watching her getting flayed alive on screen. At the very least, she deserves an Oscar nomination. And if she does get an Oscar nom, she would make a strong contender.
Dr. Joy Sivakumar (1 month ago)
Personally would give it a 7|10 , it can't be called a pure horror film tho.. the soundtrack was probably the best part in d film... The way it absorbs the audience right from the start, if the script had been written a bit better the film would have been a super hit... too much drama in some scenes and the ending could have been better.
Serina Johnson (1 month ago)
I was so into this movie ALL the way through. I don't understand the hate? I guess slowburning is true, but that is far from a bad thing. The characters were so real to me and I could feel their panic as if I was in the room with them. It was fantastic. And every frame had something important to contribute to the story. It was honestly a masterpiece imo.
Tan Di Hiong (1 month ago)
meh... overrated. Sure, I acknowledge and respect the decision to avoid jump scares but the story itself wasn't all that amazing to me. The seance thingo is a concept I really do not like because it has been well overused in horror movies. (That and ouija boards) Same old stuff really. Family loses someone close to them and, out of grief, would go as far as channelling their spirit back from the realm of the dead but ends up contacting a demon, devil or malicious spirit instead.

I didn't realize how big of an impact the score had on this movie until the second watch. So good. When songs played during this video, I could pinpoint exactly when they played in the movie, something I didn't even realize I could do.

It wasnt that scary...it was too stereotypical
Tyler Gutierrez (1 month ago)
I think people that don't find this movie scary, just don't understand how absolutely real these psychotic breakdowns are in our world. The horror in all of this is that it's happened to families and will unfortunately happen to many people who are affected by mental illness. That's what happens when you need jump scares to enjoy a horror film and completely forget the various kinds of feelings the horror genre can bring when grounded in reality.

Madison M. (1 month ago)
The fact that this movie doesn't rely on jump scares to me is a huge triumph. So many "horror" movies use this and other lame devices to give you a quick adrenaline rush. It's boring because those are easy to do and leave you with a movie that doesn't intellectually stimulate you at all. Yeah they might be more scary in the moment but the truly great movies rattle your psyche in a way you can't explain or easily shake and leave you with a general, unexplainable uncomfortableness. If you take each scene out of context they might seem boring and placid, but if you watch the whole movie and really open yourself up to the experiences of these characters, you'll be horrified, both at the gravity of their grief and loss and at the creepy cult activity. IMO everyone who says this isn't scary doesn't understand (or isn't receptive) that there are many, many ways to scare ppl, some much more potent than others, and are accustomed to adrenaline rushes instead of pure bone chilling creepiness (something that the horror genre has been s e v e r e l y lacking).

I really loved Hereditary, but it doesn't really "unfold in an unpredictable way" - if you pay enough attention you CAN work out what's going to happen. (Admittedly, I didn't pick it, but after watching a video to explain the film I was like "fuck, if I'd been paying more attention I would have totally picked it.")

This is good quality horror, kids. If you want cheap and cheesy jump scares, go watch something else. This is for adults.
khayam ali (1 month ago)
the problem with people these days is that they rely on jump scares to much and don't pay attention to great movie scripts and good acting. yes the movie wasn't scare and was more freaky which is why I would use that word to describe this movie. you see things that other horror movies don't give you. e.g. someone head getting cut off, people getting set on fire and random weird things happening when you don't expect them to. 4 stars i'd give it

It reminded me of Rosemary's Baby, and I thought it was super disturbing. The scariest part to me was what the family went through - also Toni Collette is AMAZING in it!!
Oliver Longshlong (1 month ago)
Absolute trash turned it off half way through. Love films that are suspenseful. That have mood and atmosphere. The Ring 1 being my all-time favourite horror although a special shout out to Room 1408. First film I've not sat through in a long time. Hype and pretentious bullshit.

Definitely not the scariest movie of the year quite far from it actually! But if others think differently that’s a okay!
BluJay (1 month ago)
it actually wasn’t scary. sure it had some spooky parts but i’m definitely not going to have nightmares. but i have to say, the last ten minutes or so, when Peter woke up at night, i couldn’t help but just laugh throughout the whole end.
