Hereditary 1 202x300 - HEREDITARY Scores Horrendous Cinemascore Rating

Writer-director Ari Aster’s first horror film, Hereditary, hit theaters this past weekend; and it looks like it did relatively well at the box office. However, audiences seem to be turning against the film in droves.

The film scored a horrendous Cinemascore rating of D+. This not good and I guess means general audiences found the film to be too horrific and strange. For comparison, A24’s neo-classic The Witch received a C- CinemaScore so this means little to me personally.

Add to that the fact that the film currently holds a stellar 93% over on Rotten Tomatoes, and to me this means that audiences crave original and legitimately scary horror films but don’t like them once they hit. Guess Hollywood should just keep the remakes coming then, huh?

Heaven help us.

Hereditary is written and directed by Ari Aster and stars Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Ann Dowd, Milly Shapiro, and Alex Wolff with Kevin Scott Frakes, Lars Knudsen, and Buddy Patrick producing. The film is now playing in theaters nationwide.

Review – The Scariest Movie I’ve Ever Seen


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. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage.
