The diabolical insinuates itself into the lives of a family reeling in the wake of tragedy in writer-director Ari Aster’s superb debut feature.

Annie (Toni Collette, in a tour de force performance) is struggling to come to terms with the death of her mother when disaster strikes once again. Attending a grief support group, she meets Joan (Ann Dowd), whose suggestion of a seance provides the catalyst for the nightmare to follow. Hereditary builds its supernatural horrors on the foundations of very real ones: grief, anguish, guilt and mental illness. Having already put the family – and the viewer – through the emotional wringer with an intense and measured set-up, the intrusion of the occult dials the unsettling mood up to unbearable levels.
