  • I really don’t get why Americans liked this movie... I almost slept in the cinema and most people in my country really hated it.

  • I can't explain the physical reaction I experienced when the scene that Annie discovers Charlie's decapitated head and unleashes those primordial, soul shattering gutteral screams of pure agonizingly tortuous pain.... I feel it all over and tense up, my throat closes, my eyes instantly well up with tears almost like it's such brilliant acting that my body puts me right there as tho it's my reality just as it's the characters. I dunno how to explain it.. Also, that face expression switch up when Steve is burning from despair to when payman takes over and all humanity escapes her leaving her expression not just blank but emptied and pure evil incarnate with a slight smirk omg that did me in. Love this movie I wish there was more I wish I could see so so so much more.

  • Why im so actively addressing traumas and generational trauma so that I do not pass this burden down to my children one day if I so choose to or in a emotional position to do so. I also worry that the fear of passing down trauma in itself will create it so I'm doing through a journey of self acceptance and reparenting myself in order to be the parent I needed and will need to be one day.

  • I'm not sure if Peter's immediate reaction to Charlie's death is necessarily because he represses his emotions and can't handle them. Even the most psychologically healthy person could easily go into shock if they witnessed their sister's decapitation...

  • I need Theropy bad. My family suppresses everything so bad even my dad feels death is normal to the point it douse not faze him. I know I supressed things so bad I have non electrical seizures from PTSD flashbacks of my abuse my entire life. I'm 25 disabled but seen so much horror, abuse, neglect, and hopeless things that I myself am dying inside. Not to mention my body is already falling apart. I only started Theropy at age 22 and had to halt it all when covid hit I have no money for even my normal doctors visits let alone Theropy for this I now sleepwalk at night, night terrors, seizures, PTSD flashbacks, lack of sleep, shakes, and sickness as I'm still being abused but do to COVID and my health problems no choice but to stay in abuse. This movie scares me for this

  • I actually did researching Pamon the demon king, supernatural lore and other likes him in the list of high ranking demon royalty in hell. And it turns out he isn’t like he is depicted in the movie and doesn’t act like he does in the movie or like he sacrifice. I got a film theory that after the movie ends the cult that summons the demon king expects riches from him but he actually ether kills them all, brings them to hell for torment, or jsut berated them or killing in his name.

  • This is movie is so relatable. Mental illness and abuse run in my family. My great-grandma was abused and developed depression. My grandma was abused and developed depression. My mom was abused and developed depression. And I was physically abused by my mom and my stepdad sexually abused me. In my dad's family, all of my four uncles died. Death and Despair run in my family. It is almost as if a demon from the depths of hell put a curse on my family. The abuse, the despair stop with me. I am going to do my best to be a kind, empathetic, and happy person. Also, I thought long and hard about it I am not having kids. I really need peace and quiet.

  • I have been busy for years with myself to resolve the repressed parts inside of me, but also the stuff that i got from my ancestors. It is in our unconscious, very deep and almost invisible, but it is there and it is when we confront these inner demons and resolve them, it is like we are also resolving them for our ancestors. It also brings out talents inside of us that were first hidden, bringing out a bigger light then we taught we were. I also always say, we are mortal gods, we are infinite yet limited. Mindfullness, psychology, philosophy and most important of all opening up to yourself and you find out what horrendous, but also beautiful beings we are and you learn to accept both and it sets you free. For me the best and deepest moment was when i found out that love created us, a twisted weird harsh love, but love nonetheless.

  • “Lance Morrow, journalist and writer, succinctly expressed the multigenerational nature of suffering in his book Heart, a wrenching and beautiful account of his encounters with mortality, thrust upon him by near-fatal heart disease: “The generations are boxes within boxes: Inside my mother’s violence you find another box, which contains my grandfather’s violence, and inside that box (I suspect but do not know) you would find another box with some such black secret energy-stories within stories, receding in time.” [...] “Marilyn was right. The seeds of her own troubled childhood were sown long before she was born, in her mother’s troubled childhood, and even long before her mother was born. We bequeath to our children not only what we honor in ourselves and in our parents; each generation also passes much of its own negative experiences on to the next, quite without wishing to do so. We need not be helpless in deciding how the story of our families will continue in the future, but first we have to recognize the themes and events that have shaped our present. Blame becomes a meaningless concept if one understands how family history stretches back through the generations. “Recognition of this quickly dispels any disposition to see the parent as villain,” wrote John Bowlby, the British psychiatrist who showed the decisive importance of attachment in infancy and childhood.5 Who should we end up pointing the accusing finger at? At Adam and Eve, or perhaps at some poor anthropoid ape ancestor digging at the earth, a crudely sharpened stick held between palm and prehensile thumb.” - Gabor Maté, Scattered Minds: A New Look at the Origins and Healing of Attention Deficit Disorder

  • @wisecrack, your use of the word 'pagan' is technically incorrect as is most other modern people's definition. To most people today it means, "non-christian" or "witch". This is incorrect. Pagan is Latin deriving from the word 'pagus' and turning into 'pagani' and 'paganus'. It means 'from the countryside' or 'country dweller'. That is why you don't refer to Rome as a pagan city but you refer to Stonehenge as a 'pagan structure'. Also demons derives from Greek and was used to denote spirits and even angels. It did not always mean malevolent entities. You should really learn to use more correct words even if the modern world is defining things incorrectly.

  • Ok, if family members repress their feelings, the problem is excess of repression and not family itself. Repression is not inherited. It can be reverted. I watched many analysis on this channel and at first they seemed so wise. However, as more as I watch, I notice they have so many holes and contradictions. This video shows how somebody can interpret anything the way they like by filtering some elements and not looking at the big picture. An analysis of the movie that simply does not talk about the satanic rituals?? It is a main feature in the movie. If genetics are so determinant as the video suggest, how identical twins can be so different? A lot of pseudo-science to affirm a point o view.

  • That movie hit me deep. Mental disorders have been in my family for generations, and no surprise here, both me and my sister have at least a couple of them. My family is also all about repressing our feelings. Rather than decapitating ourselves, my sister and I both decided not to have children because we don't want to pass along those genes nor the forced interaction with mentally unstable people. Besides never wanting to be a mother anyway, I belive it's best we break the cycle.

  • This movie was an amazing experience, but the ending felt cheap and lazy compared to the rest of the film. It would’ve been amazing to have the ending be that it was the result of mental illness that cursed their family and that the mom commits horrific acts due to mental illness. And now her children have inherited these mal formalities and are doomed to suffer because of what they inherited biologically

    • the ending's meant to throw you off and leave more questions than answers. Your ideal ending could quite possibly be what actually happened but because it's supposed to be a two hour nose dive into madness it would be an even cheaper cop out to essentially go "it was a dream the whole time!" Ultimately the film is more about the subtext of intergenerational trauma rather than the cult

  • Family does play an important part in each one of us but we are the owners of our own lives in the end of the day. Society progress because people does change and progress in the end. So we are not doomed to repeat the mistake the predecessors are making if we make a conscious choice and continue to put efforts into improving our own lives.

  • I will not watch this movie. But I’ll admit the concept and all I know of the film through watching hours of reviews and commentary like this excellent Wisecrack vid make me wish I could watch it. In my opinion the mother Annie is the anti-hero. She’s repressed like you said but intuitively she knew that something very bad is going to happen to her and end her family. She tried to fight against it by keeping her Mom away from her son Peter in an attempt to protect him from the inevitable. She didn’t want to be a mother. But even though she’s in denial that the inherent danger is immediate, she and the family are weakened by the sinister opening of their demise ...repression and grief. And no we are not doomed to repeat the generational curses. If we are not in denial about them, we can forge a future without the toxicity and pain from the past. But it has to be a healthier and spiritually aware process. Great review and commentary.⭐️ 😘
