‘Hereditary,’ a new horror movie directed by debutant Ari Aster opened at the Sundance Film Festival 2018. Ever since the premiere, the movie attracted headlines like ‘the most insane horror movie in years,’ ‘horror movie that traumatized Sundance,’ ‘the most traumatically terrifying horror movie in ages,’ ‘scariest movie of the year,’ ‘a new generation’s Exorcist,’ and ‘21st century’s Rosemary’s Baby.’ And now, the trailer of 'Hereditary' is out and it has a release date. The movie is scheduled to release in June 28 in the US and it looks spooky as hell.The film currently has a 100% rating on review aggregator website, Rotten Tomatoes. The writer and director Ari Aster attempts to give a modern-day spin to the classic haunted house setting. The movie stars Toni Collette and Gabriel Byrne and its official synopsis say, “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.”
HEREDITARY: #Sundance officially becomes yearly launching pad for all future genre defining horror movies. I AM LEFT PARALYZED BY THIS MOVIE. And Toni Colette! Her performance walks a tightrope of frailty and hysteria. Think Blue Jasmine for the horror genre.

Holy shit that was incredible. One of the most disturbing and terrifying films in years. TRUST ME. You WILL be hearing about #Hereditary. I have not been that truly horrified in years. If you’re up at #Sundance see it immediately. I LOVED this film. This is what horror is.

HEREDITARY is so disquieting, you’ll be gasping for air in the theater. Utterly believable supernatural horror. There will be no scarier movie this year. If there is, it means we’re in a new golden age. #Sundance

Hereditary is f'ing TERRIFYING. I won't be able to sleep tonight. (Also: I'm a little bit in love with Toni Collette). #Sundance

‘Hereditary’ follows the footsteps of fellow Sundance horror movie breakouts in the past like ‘The Witch’, ‘It Comes At Night’ and last year's massive hit, 'Get Out'. Here are some Twitter reactions on ‘Hereditary’ straight out of Sundance.
