Here at HAHC headquarters, we love spending our lazy Sundays watching new(ish) trailers to upcoming horror releases.
The inaugural trailer is for A24’s Hereditary, directed by Ari Aster and starring Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, and Milly Shapiro. We caught this one in the theater before Annihilation, and thought it looked pretty slick.
Via Sundance Institute’s website: “The Graham family starts to unravel following the death of their reclusive grandmother. Even after she’s gone, the matriarch still casts a dark shadow over the family, especially her loner teenage granddaughter, Charlie, whom she always had an unusual fascination with. As an overwhelming terror takes over their household, their peaceful existence is ripped apart, forcing their mother to explore a darker realm in order to escape the unfortunate fate they’ve inherited.”
Is this going to be another strong debut from a fresh horror filmmaker, or just a very clever trailer? We’re going to find out this June, for sure.
