    "That moment where you realise you're not in control as a spectator". Well he sure nailed it in THAT scene 100 percent.

        I know what scene spoiler he's talking about in the movie with the Sissy Spasek facial expression.

          I knew Rosemary's baby (the book and film) was very influential for Hereditary. Thanks for giving credit where credit is due Ari.

              I'm pretty surprised that he didn't cite The Shining, The Amityville Horror (1979) and a few others as influences. I even saw some A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) in there. Maybe it was subliminal, a time limit or he didn't think to mention them. It's a great film.

                I think I know what scene your talking about Ari, and that scene really fucked me up.

                          Love this discussion. It's great to hear where some of Ari's inspiration came from for Hereditary, especially since his new film stands so well on it's own. Thanks for sharing! I added this to one of our playlists about HEREDITARY!!

                            Just saw Hereditary last night and wow.. that movie was amazing. I won't be forgetting that one.
