    This seems to be more directly pulling from specific films than Hereditary based on the early information, but I’m hoping like that film he really makes the tropes and ideas his own.

    Basically the answer is yes. Lol. The full cast is on IMDB already, and it’s clear that this is much more of an ensemble piece.

    "a summer trip where things quickly go awry."

    understatement of the year perhaps? haha

    I LOVED the very ending the stuff inside the tree house but thought everything else was whacky. Toni Collette was fantastic, but the son was sooo bad.

    The son acted his ass off

    Outside of ten seconds of him crying in the seance scene, the son was great throughout the whole movie.

    Agree to disagree I guess. He literally enunciated crying sounds. Absolutely took me out of it.

    That said, I think Aster has some solid ideas so I'm excited to see how this plays out. Really want to like it.

    He was intentionally reverting to an infantile state because of his grief/fear and to make viewers more unsettled and uncomfortable. It’s not an example of bad acting, it’s a choice from the director.

    I can't wait to hear from my friends how this was "boring" and "nothing happened."

    Depending on how it plays out we absolutely have the potential for even more backlash than Hereditary got from general horror audiences. (I also can’t wait.)
