Every family tree hides a secret.
Evil Runs In The Family
Alex Wolff in an interview explains that he wanted to actually break his own nose for the scene where his character slams his head into a desk and to which the director Ari Aster respectfully declined his offer and told him they would give him a soft, cushioned desk for the scene. When it was time for the scene to be shot, he slams his head into the desk only to find that it was not soft nor made out of foam that resulted into his actual blood gushing down to his knees.

Reportedly a trailer for the film was accidentally shown at a screening of "Peter Rabbit" in Australia.

In Peter's first scene at school, the words "Escaping Fate" is on the chalkboard with the teacher discussing it. This is a reference to the 1978 film "Halloween" where the main character discusses the same thing in class.

Appropriately, "Hereditary" was released the same day as the trailer for 2018 "Halloween".

"Hereditary" was director Ari Aster's feature debut.

The whole interior of the Graham house was built on a sound stage.

After the 2015 "The Witch", 2016 "Free Fire" and 2017 "It Comes at Night" movies. this movie was the fourth A24 movie to get a wide release.

Hereditary premiered on January 21, 2018, at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival in the Midnight section.

Toni Collete is actually 22 years younger than her on-screen husband, Gabriel Byrne.

Previously, Gabriel Byrne and Alex Wolff starred together in the television show "In Treatment". Gabriel Byrne also worked with Alex Wolff in the HBO tv series "In Treatment".
