Despite the fact that the horror genre is one of the most acclaimed by the audience worldwide, in reality there are few productions that are satisfactory.

In the golden age of Hollywood cinema, since the 20s, the most attractive were monsters, for the 70s came the film that has reigned as the most terrifying in history, The Exorcist – 87%, in the eighties they began to play with stories that combine horror with comic, absurd or grotesque touches, in the late 90s and early 2000s a new way of generating fear was found through false documentaries such as The Blair Witch Project – 86%.
But it was until 2018 when a new name emerged with a different vision of terror, seeking to stand out among all the stories already told with thunderous noises or very little lighting. Ari Aster premieres Hereditary (The Devil’s Legacy – 96%), where the family seeks to get away from a cult to which several of their ancestors have belonged for a long time and a series of horrendous events persecute each one of them to continue leading said cult. The film generated so much conversation because of the novelty in the way of telling the story, that many compared it to the fear caused by the film starring Linda Blair at the time.
