This is about the movie and soundtrack

I personally regret seeing this movie. It is a masterful work of art meant to make you feel internally ill, but I feel as though it went so far as to almost give me a panic attack. My heat quickened in the first fifteen minuets, and by the end of the film I could barley stand up. I was shaky as I walked towards the exits, wondering how well I would sleep that night. The soundtrack gave me great anxiety. I felt at times that I heard a pulsing when there was no music. It was almost as if the film had a heartbeat. I have to admit, I didn’t pay too much attention to the soundtrack, because the movie’s imagery in it of itself was distracting enough. No matter how disgusting, I couldn’t tear my eyes away from the Hereditary’s horrid storyline. In the middle of the movie, when the daughter died, I felt very sick. My body ached from the mere sight of Charlie’s body. I’m not usually affected by gore, or blood, or violence, and I can see any scary movie you throw at me without getting scared, but this movie gave me a bad taste in my mouth when I went home. As for me, I would consider the film scary because of how disturbing it is. The actual plot doesn’t scare me, because I don’t think that my grandma worships the devil and wants to make me into one of the eight kings of hell, but it’s still a very frightening movie theatre experience. I usually love to rewatch my favorite movies over and over again, but this is a movie that I will not be seeing again, and I will not recommend it to any of my friends. It’s just too much. I get that it’s supposed to have that kind of dark and dismal affect, but I have a friend with severe anxiety and a fear of demons, and I think that if she saw this film she would genuinely start living inside of a Catholic Church. I’m afraid that if I had to watch this movie for the rest of my life, I would too.

Truly amazing!

This is an amazing soundtrack from composer Colin Stetson, and it complements the movie exceptionally. I predict this soundtrack will be on many award lists this year. It’s not to be missed.
