This year is looking to be a pretty solid one for the horror genre. In the past few days alone, we’ve seen trailers for the Netflix series The Rain, their new film The Ritual, and the Steven Soderbergh film Unsane (which was shot entirely on an iPhone).

Now, A24 has released a new trailer for their horror flick Hereditary, and man is it unsettling. Admittedly, it’s a bit difficult to follow the specifics of what’s going on in the story, but the implication here seems to be that the main character and her family have a sinister bloodline. It looks like the perfect kind of slow burn that can make a splash with horror fans later this year.

Below is the synopsis for Hereditary:

“When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter’s family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.”
