So you just walked out of “Hereditary?” Star Alex Wolff has a message of support for you.
“I know you’ve just walked out of ‘Hereditary,’ and I know that your heart is beating very fast, I know there’s probably sweat in your hands. And there’s probably tears in your eyes. And there’s probably acid in your stomach,” Wolff says into the camera during an exclusive interview for TheWrap. “And I know that this is hard. But the good news is, you won’t get over this. This will haunt you for months to come.”
His support message continues, “And every day it’s going to get harder and it’s going to get longer, and it’s going to get more twisted. And I just want you to know, I am not rooting for you. And Ari, the director, is not rooting for you. And no one is rooting for you. Because you got yourself into this mess. So next time, don’t see ‘Hereditary’ if you are going to whine about it. Thanks. Sincerely, Alex Wolff.”
“Hereditary” follows a family whose secrets begin to unravel when Peter’s grandmother passes away. The movie is truly traumatizing and has been dubbed the “scariest film in decades.” It premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and currently holds a Rotten Tomatoes score of 94 percent.
Directed by Ari Aster, the film also stars Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Milly Shapiro and Ann Dowd.
“This movie seeps in your bones — even if you are not scared, you’ll be disturbed or upset by it,” Wolff told TheWrap. “I hope it makes people miserable.”
