HEREDITARY is a new horror movie starring Toni Collette has apparently made people cry in the cinema, with others saying they felt physically ill after watching it. 

Basically, it sounds scary AF and the reviews of the movie so far all have one thing in common: it's the scariest movie in years. 

This is what the film is all about...

When Ellen, the matriach 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 gone to hell.

Don't believe it's so scary? Check out what the critics who saw it at Sundance Film Fest had to say...

"Something happens in this movie that's so upsetting that I wasn't sure I wanted to keep watching it. Then the movie just keeps compounding it. It's brilliantly cruel."

HEREDITARY doesn't have a UK release date just yet, but keep an eye out...
