:)

found another list of his, for the completists

Here are just a few horror films that I love...

Alien, Rosemary's Baby, Carrie, Cat People (Val Lewton), Psycho, The Uninvited, The Innocents, The Man Who Laughed, Nosferatu, Don't Look Now, The Fly (Cronenberg), most of David Lynch, The Wailing, The Shining, Don't Look Now, The Exorcist, Kwaidan, Onibaba, The Devils, Kuroneko, Empire of Passion, Pulse, Ugetsu, Let the Right One In, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Suspiria, Poltergeist...

Some of those films influenced me more than others in the writing/making of Hereditary.

Saw the Blu-ray in a $2 bin and grabbed it since I enjoyed Midsommar decently and was floored by it

I had not seen a trailer or anything about it, but damn. Reading this thread after was a delight

1. Woman with crying baby telling shushers to "fuck off and mind your business"
2. Weird dude beside me whispering to himself and randomly grabbing his duffelbag throughout the movie and I started getting a SUPER bad vibe from him
3. 20 minutes in, a lady rolls in a full shopping cart
4. Old guy struggling to open a bag of candy for like 30 minutes making the loudest sound known to man

AND STILL I WAS ENGROSSED!! Believe the hype, but also go in as stoned as you can get.

Rhodes wrote:My experience was the worst one I've had in a while. The crowds for The Witch and It were both pretty bad, but nothing like the annoying old people behind us. Like, after The Witch ended, I heard a few "that was fuckin' stupid" or something. This fucking guy during Hereditary had to loudly cough and clear his sinuses for a solid five minutes right at the beginning of the movie after offering his hot takes on every trailer shown (all of them being "I don't think so" with the exception of the dumb Mark Wahlberg movie). Then when the movie ended, he belched out, "That was lame" like he was forced to watch the movie at gunpoint and at no point did it dawn on him that maybe the movie wasn't for him and he should probably just cut his losses and leave and he lacked the wherewithal to piece the various clues together and the self-awareness and restraint that governs another person who recognizes that, despite theater-going being a shared, communal experience, attendees are there for the movie, not their neighbor's dumb thoughts.

YEAH, DUDE. EVERYONE WAS IN ONE OF THE MOM'S MINIATURES THE ENTIRE TIME.

I watched both movies apocalyptically stoned in the past couple weeks, both great great experiences.

At one point I was convinced that Hereditary had at least two timelines going, one of which was Toni Collette's character building the miniatures and making them act out the other timeline. When the decapitation happened I felt like physically knocked back and pinned to the couch, it was freaky.

that makes me wonder if my grandparents saw this. I wouldn't call them film buffs or anything, they just go see movies, seemingly indiscriminately. it's always been a fun point of conversation with them. I'll never forget when my grandma told me they saw Clerks 2.

I rewatched Midsommar last night and it's just perfect to me. As a person who's initiated and processed life-changing identity issues as well as trauma through repeated ritualistic use of psychedelics, it was enormously resonant and cathartic. Provided they have timely access to modern medicine and medication, I would join this cult in a second.

Luckily I haven't taken drugs with people anywhere near as awful as the American dudes in this movie, but "oh fuck a new person" is the most accurate (and funniest) depiction of psychedelics that I've ever encountered in fiction or non-fiction in any form. I LOVED how that one asshole (Mark?) turned into a scared whiny baby once the drugs came on, after he was acting like a tough guy earlier while pressuring Dani and Christian to take the shrooms.

"How long is the car ride?" "Four hours." followed by vape guy loudly objectifying another Swedish woman off camera was excellent cringe comedy.

Yeah this film is still the best depiction of a bad trip there is. Can't think of anything else. Every other film just hams mushrooms up so much -- colors, flying animals, etc.

This is just great. Horizon melting. Things out of place. Time dilation.

If nothing else, it remains that.
