It's in the blood: Watch the first trailer for Hereditary

Fresh off its première at the Sundance Film Festival where the film was compared to horror giants such as The Exorcist and Rosemary's Baby, A24 have released the first trailer for Hereditary.

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 transforms a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, creating a chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.

This is Ari Aster's first feature film and he also takes on writing duties. The aforementioned Graham family is made up of Toni Collette, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro and Gabriel Byrne, Anne Dowd in support.

Hereditary gets a June release in the US, but no news yet on a UK date.
