Hereditary is an upcoming horror film directed by newcomer Ari Aster. It follows the Grahams, a family in mourning after the passing of grandma. Annie, the family’s mother, suspects that not all is as it seems after grandma’s death – something unnatural may have been left behind. Annie’s suspicions are confirmed as the family is thrown into a nightmarish scenario of ever-increasing terror at the hands of the inexplicable. As the family turns in on itself in the throes of paranoia and despair, Annie is forced to face the darkness of their inherited fate in order for them to survive. Following lavish praise from early screenings and a successful run on the festival circuit, A24 is releasing Hereditary on June 8th, 2018.
Scoring duties on Hereditary came to Colin Stetson (Lavender, collaborator of Arcade Fire). Though his background as a saxophonist makes him an unconventional choice for horror composition, Stetson has conjured an instant classic for Hereditary using an army of strings, chimes and drones. The end result is a uniquely uneasy, sinister suite of music capped with one of the most unexpected conclusions in recent years – listeners will find themselves totally possessed. In addition to a digital and CD release, Hereditary is getting the vinyl treatment. Pressed on a pair of 180g black LPs for optimal sound quality, the release is housed in a gatefold jacket featuring liner notes from director Ari Aster. Milan Records is proud to be releasing the soundtrack to Hereditary on June 8th, 2018
