When Hereditary, the new horror movie from the producers of Split and The Witch, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, critics were terrified and delighted. One critic said it was “so disquieting, you’ll be gasping for air in the theater,” while USA Today called it “insane.” There wasn’t an official trailer for the movie at the time, so we had to take their word for it. But on Tuesday, the first trailer hit the web, and it’s easy to see why everyone was raving about it, because this movie looks really, really intense and unsettling.

The official synopsis for the A24 film, which was written and directed by the rookie Ari Aster, lays out the plot like this:

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.

The trailer is light on plot details other than that there is something wrong with the family, and something is haunting them, somehow, after the death of Toni Collette’s mother. But, it makes up for that with gobs of really horrifying imagery. Milly Shapiro, who plays the family’s young daughter, might just go down as the creepiest horror movie kid of all time, because she looks and acts in a really upsetting way. She’s quiet, sunken-eyed, and, uh, cutting the heads off of dead birds. There’s also immolation and a dollhouse motif that’s effectively disconcerting.


Hereditary will hit theaters on June 8, 2018.

When news broke on Monday afternoon that Stan Lee had died, it only took a few minutes for lengthy obituaries to hit the internet. Lee would have been pleased. In a 1995 appearance on the Late Night With Conan O’Brien, Lee talked about his past career as a freelance obituary writer (yes, seriously), and revealed how they get those obituaries up so fast.

Just before the Black Friday and holiday shopping rush, we’ve found maybe the ultimate gift (for a loved one or even just yourself) this year: The actual watch from the movie Jaws. It’s gorgeously vintage with a modern build, and it’s on sale right now on our favorite lifestyle shopping site Huckberry.

Did you all forget that Ryan Reynolds (and not Danny Devito) is voicing Pikachu in the live-action movie POKÉMON Detective Pikachu? Well, he is, and there is an honest to goodness trailer to prove it. Also, there are like five characters from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the film, if you want to be technical about it.

Woop-woop! That’s the sound of tha police!” Or it might just be the sound of the police Radar Signs that have been placed along the roads on the Fortnite: Battle Royale* island for a new Season 6, Week 5 challenge.

Week 5 challenges were unlocked Thursday morning. With several totally normal damage-based challenges comes a new edition of the old “Flaming Hoops” task but also a fun new speed-based challenge that pretty much requires a Quadcrasher. The challenge has players “Record a speed of 27 or more on different Radar Signs” five different times. Is that MPH? KPH? We may never know, but we do know it’s gotta be fast.
