It has been awhile since a very tense horror trailer has come this way. Debuting at the Sundance Film Festival (Jan. 21st), the trailer for Palmstar Media's Hereditary is a shocking one. The film stars: Toni Collette (The Sixth Sense, 1999), Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro, Ann Dowd, and Zachary Arthur. In the clip, a family struggles to cope, after the death of their matriarch. The result is a very confusing world. A preview of the film's upcoming U.S. theatrical release is hosted here.

The trailer provides a small glimpse at the strange story. It shows characters and animals brutalized, by an invisible force. The synopsis mentions a reclusive grandmother, who casts a "dark shadow (A24)" over the family. Her presence can still be felt as Annie (Collette) struggles to raise her daughter, Charlie (Shapiro).

Hereditary will see several theatres this Summer. This truly terrifying title will show, in U.S. theatres, this June 8th. This film is sure to show in more territories. And, here is one vote for Hereditary coming to Canada. More Hereditary details are below.

Release Date: June 8th, 2018 (Limited Theatrical).

Director/writer: Ari Aster.

Cast: Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne and Alex Wolff.
