Cults & Ladders
I’m not a regular consumer of anything in the horror genre. But if there are serial killers to meet or cults to join, I’m the first one to pick up the hitchhiker or guzzle down the spiked Kool-Aid.
Ari Aster’s Hereditary was out last summer, terrifying the world with two of the scariest combinations: the supernatural and family. I’m not sure which spooks me more. I was almost seduced into seeing it from its amazing trailer, but ended up getting baked and only putting it on the site. I suppose I could revisit this later, but probably not.
Aster’s contribution to keeping us awake this summer is a pagan cult in Midsommar. I’ll be seeing it on the big screen. Look for me in my white robes! Just keep those bees out of my eyes.
