Horror fans who want to add more terrifying trauma to their movie shelves will be able to bring home Hereditary on September 4th! The film will be released on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital), Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital), and DVD.
Along with the notoriously frightening film, the release will feature a whopping nine deleted scenes! Director Ari Aster recently revealed to THR that the original cut of Hereditary was three hours long. While nine is considerably less than the thirty additional scenes that Aster says ended up on the cutting room floor, the included deleted scenes should give us a window into some of that original cut.
Hereditary’s theatrical release created a small phenomenon this summer. It was one of the more haunting, disturbing, and terrifying horror films of recent memory. The film elicited memorably intense audience reactions, leading to many dubbing it as “this generation’s Exorcist.” It’s the latest in horror from A24, a studio that has prioritized producing unique and artistically crafted horror such as It Follows (2014) and The VVitch (2015).
Here’s the official synopsis of the film:
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.
Along with the deleted scenes, the Hereditary physical release will include the “Cursed: The True Nature of Hereditary” Featurette and “Evil in Miniature” Photo Gallery.
Hereditary is one of those rare new films that is already a classic. So if you missed out on the trauma the first time, or just want to relive the terror and examine the mystery, again and again, pick up Hereditary on September 4th!
