Review: Hereditary, family is forever

No matter how you look at it, this is one of the year’s very best horror films. It’s a stunningly bleak exploration of a family dealing with loss, and the way Ari Aster navigates his story of a deteriorating family like an absolute madman makes it hard to believe that this is his first feature […]
