God, Hereditary was terrible.
It's the same basic plot as The VVitch, plus some cobbled together elements from Rosemary's Baby and Poltergeist. I'm completely baffled as to what was supposed to be compelling or unique about Hereditary, aside from maybe some button pushing by lingering on the family suffering. Beyond that...spooky seances, possessions, amorphous curses, whatever.
The only good part was the Colin Stetson score (who is terrific, btw).
