A24 has released a second theatrical trailer for “Hereditary”, and while it’s only running for a minute, it serves to raise the hype that is surrounding the film ever since its Sundance premiere. Fans of the film have already drawn comparisons to horror icons like The Exorcist and Firestarter, though there are also hints of more contemporary twists on the genre like The Babadook and Under the Shadow, and it’s plain to see that the Stranger Things effect is still in full swing. Hereditary will certainly be its own thing … a very, very creepy thing. The first atmospheric and adrenaline-pumping trailer introduced the family drama at the center of the horror film that drives the action and ratchets up the tension, and I’m happy to say this new trailer keeps that spirit intact. Writer-director Ari Aster‘s feature horror debut stars Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, and Milly Shapiro, and opens June 8th against Ocean’s 8.
