“Hereditary” is a literally "homemade" horror. The physical home, as a place of family life and as creative microcosm of Annie, and the metaphysical home, as a dreamlike symbol of the stability or instability of the Ego, are inextricably intertwined in a game of Chinese boxes : a husband , a son, a daughter, and a miniaturist job she loves. But also a bulky mother: Ellen.
Annie has always been trying to fix her "home": and soon we realize that something, in addition to the ambivalent relationship between her and the now defunct Ellen, does not work. Starting from Charlie, an... Read More

The fact that we are dealing with a shapeshifting... Read More
Linda Blair began modeling when she was five years old.

Since then Blair has appeared in dozens of movies and TV shows, performed on Broadway (in Grease as Rizzo), and is a well-known... Read More

When an unidentified caller keeps repeatedly harassing your entire sorority house with obscene things you can only half-understand (because he sounds like a deranged Donald Duck that... Read More
1. A Nightmare On Elm Street Freddy Krueger is making a return No matter how hard we try, that pesky Freddy Krueger just won't die. That's because New Line Cinema is currently slaving away to make sure that our childhood nightmare comes back from the dead for a second time.
