Last Friday, the new A24-produced horror film Hereditary hit theaters, and the Internet may never be the same. While the film, directed by Ari Aster, has been gaining momentum since premiering at Sundance earlier this year, the clamoring reactions from journalists and audiences suggest the film may join the ranks of cultural phenomena like Jaws or The Exorcist.  

The film stars Toni Collette as the mom of a family beset by a malevolent curse—which, judging by the frantic close-ups on Collette’s face currently circulating online, unleashes some blood-curdling visual effects. The reactions on Twitter have been just as animated; from celebrity commentary to the cryptic “Hereditary spoilers without context” meme, the now-trending Hereditary hashtag reflects a rainbow of emotional responses—curiosity, fear—even pledges to Satanism. Here, a roundup of the Tweets most likely to make you ask the office, “Have you seen Hereditary?”
