The Witch vs. Hereditary



Both films follow a similar narrative of gradual family destruction, while maintaining a highly ambiguous and frightening tone. Hereditary is essentially a modernistic, hip version of The Witch. Well-written and executed horror films, I found the atmosphere and intrigue of The Witch a bit more engaging, although both are of great calibre.

Both are brilliant, but The Witch is slightly better.

Both of these movies are in my top 10 favorite horrors of all time. They both scare the crap out of me but there is one movie that I think is slightly better than the other, and that is The VVitch.
