    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 gone to hell.

    how is that 53 yr old little girl NOT enough of a dark family secret
    does this film really need another dark family secret
    what if the second dark family secret is that they all eventually shrink into retards that look very similar to the first dark family secret

    I'm getting more of a cultish vibe from it
    the grandmother was part of a cult and her death leads to hallucinations/possessions/mental breakdowns of each family member, with the girl at the centre of it. In the trailer Toni Collette mentions how the grandmother wanted to feed the girl all the time so she's probably next in line to be the cult leader or chosen one or some shit, and in the second trailer strangers are trying to get her attention (guy at funeral, lady across the street). Either that or the whole time the boy is the centre of it and the girl was a red herring idk

    A24 has enough good grace built up that I'll give pretty much anything of theirs a go. Haven't been following this one at all, intentionally so. I'd rather just walk in blind.
