A Petrifying Psychological Thriller Was Actually Never Scary, Apparently
Back in 2018, Ari Aster’s psychological horror film Hereditary terrified audiences with its mind-boggling narrative and unforgettable scenes that left lovers of the entire genre in awe. Between Toni Collette’s Oscar-worthy performance and a message deeply rooted with tension and family betrayal, Aster undoubtedly created a horror movie for the ages. Now, years after the film’s release has passed and folks have acquired a taste for its macabre, horror fans are wondering if the film’s haunting suspense still holds up — and, truthfully, are questioning if the movie was ever actually scary.
Over on Reddit, user u/SwingyWingyShoes posted a thought-provoking analysis of Aster’s 2018 film, where they called it a low-budget movie with a “bizarre” ending that didn’t quite live up to its potential. Additionally, the OP called upon other users to state their opinions on the horror movie and if it was actually scary at all.
