There is a lot of controversies when it comes to what movie is the scariest of all time? Some people will say, Anabelle, other will say insidious, although it is an extremely creepy movie it is not the scariest.
And who are these people that vote on which movie is the scariest of all time? Are they movie boffins? Are they horror enthusiasts? Or are they just those people that only watches horror movies when they think it's going to be good and scary?
Most of the time it's the latter, but today I am here to tell you that they are all wrong, because we know what horror film is the scariest and I bet you can't wait to find out! Well, I'm not going to hold onto the secret anymore so here it goes.
The judgment came from the well known Sundance Film Festival, where they all agreed that this movie is just too scary.
Yes, it's the one and only Hereditary! This film left everyone nail-biting on the edge of their seats at this year's Sundance Film Festival, where it was recognized as the best and scariest horror movie since Rosemary's Baby.
Who are the makers of this incredible film? It's Studio A24 and they will be getting a lot of credit and praise for Hereditary just like they did for their past movies, like Green Room, The Witch, and Lady Bird.
The movie premiered at Sundance and some people had very interesting stuff to say.
The Independent wrote:
"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."
Thrillist also explained how scary the screams were in the theatre:
"This isn’t a scary movie. It’s pure emotional terrorism, gripping you with real horror, the unspeakable kind, and then imbuing the supernatural stuff with those feelings. It didn’t play me like a fiddle. It slammed on my insides like a grand piano…The warped genius of the film’s tactic is how it steeps us in the pain of these characters, investing in the drama of their situation, and then uses the raw emotions—theirs and ours—to enhance the potency of its set pieces. Which are masterful, by the way: Propelled by a dread-infused, disorienting score by avant-garde saxophonist Colin Stetson, the film does a number on the nerves, perfecting the James Wan approach of prolonged suggestion and peekaboo funhouse horror. But even the jump scares feel psychologically loaded."
HEREDITARY is pants-wetting unnerving. The more I think about it, the more questions I have, and it could be much tighter, but it's still a hell of a cardio workout. Also, Toni Collette is a cinematic champ. #Sundance— Tasha Robinson (@TashaRobinson) January 23, 2018
HEREDITARY is so disquieting, you’ll be gasping for air in the theater. Utterly believable supernatural horror. There will be no scarier movie this year. If there is, it means we’re in a new golden age. #Sundance— Joshua Rothkopf (@joshrothkopf) January 23, 2018
Are you up for the challenge of watching the scariest movie of the year? We certainly will be!
