This is, straight up, the creepiest movie I have ever seen. As I watched it the hair on my arms and neck stood up. I felt chills several times. Basically, I was completely freaked out.

While this is a horror film, it isn't a scary movie per se. Yes, you will jump a couple of times, but that is the extent of the scares. This is much more along the lines of the true horror genre. It makes you think one thing and then it takes your brain, squeezes it in a vice, then gives it back to you all used up.

I try hard to keep my reviews from using morality as a compass since people all over the world view things in such different ways. It's much easier to simply give a critical review and let the public sort out the morality or immorality of a film's content for themselves. In this case though I feel like I need to point out that this film has many Satanic elements. I don't want to spoil the film, so I will only say that this is not your typical demon-possession horror flick. There is a depth to the evil I have not witnessed before in a movie.

Now, critically speaking, this film is incredible. The acting is nearly award-worthy, especially by Toni Colette. The story pulls you in, the pacing is perfect, and the creep factor is through the roof.

If you are a fan of horror movies, this one may become on of your all-time favorites. Or, you may think that it is way over the top and spend the next several days trying to scrub it out of your head. Either way, HEREDITARY will mess with your mind.
