I'm actually just going to say - not bad for a first feature. But, this is really over-hyped. The story is well done and original. The performances are solid to excellent. It is certainly a very "adult" film that relies far more on character and atmosphere. It's definitely in the same wheelhouse as the other A24 horror films that I have seen and I will say that I appreciate the niche that they seem to be carving out for themselves. But, there are certainly a number of recent films that I thought were far scarier and far more original in their artistry. And many of them are other A24 films. Unfortunately, I was just expecting more. The word "traumatic" kept popping up in the early festival buzz and I have to say that this really isn't that. It's not a game changer the way films like "Rosemary's Baby" and the "Exorcist" were. And, while it is well done, I can't say that it was as unique as "The Vvitch", "It Follows", "We Need to Talk About Kevin", or even "Under the Skin". And I would say it certainly isn't as "traumatic" as the end of "The Conjuring", "mother" or "Neon Demon". The film it actually reminded me the most of if "Don't Look Now". And I think that's a masterpiece, so this one falls short there. But the way "Hereditary" examines grief does come close at times. However, it's nowhere near as raw. A quick note on the characters - I did find them "likeable", but we are seeing them start at a pretty low point. So, they aren't exactly engaging We don't really get to see them before tragedy strikes. So, it's hard to imaging what sort of life we are rooting for them to get back to. But, I did think that they were very original characters and watching the different ways that they are handling the death at the beginning of the film was interesting. Had this come out years ago, I probably would have been more impressed. But considering the great slate of "art-horror" films that have come before it, I just can't get as excited as the reviewers seem to be. Is it good? Definitely. Is it worth watching? Yeah, particularly if the recent batch of art-horror films has been tickling your fancy. Is it thought provoking? Yeah, it definitely has some things to say about family and grief and there's a nice enigmatic style to the story telling. Is it better than any of the films that I have named so far? Not by a long shot. All in all, it was a decent film. I'm enjoyed watching it and I'm glad I did. What it ended up making me think of the most was that second wave of J-horror. It's good but it's riding in wake of a lot of far better films.
