Synopsis

Ghostly apparitions, creepy kids, creepy kids doing creepy things to dead animals, even a cabin in the woods - it's all here. You can tune out the alarm bells, though. Instead of some tired cliché checklist Ari Aster's feature debut delivers a chilling exploration of grief, guilt and shame, with Toni Collette terrific as sleepwalking miniature model designer Annie Graham. She shares her home with good-guy husband Steve (Gabriel Byrne), dope-smoking teenage son Peter (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle's Alex Wolff) and young daughter Charlie (Milly Shapiro) - the latter distant, distracted and prone to knocking up occult-looking totems. Hanging over all of them is the recent death of Annie's mother, a notoriously secretive and private woman whose funeral was a suspiciously crowded affair...
