2. Hereditary (2018)

Unsettling happenings and perceptible spiritual manifestations begin nesting in the secluded house’s dark corners. As a miniature artist, Annie Graham and her family prepare for the funeral of her mother, the excruciatingly complex and mysterious septuagenarian Ellen Leigh.

Annie’s 13-year-old daughter Charlie’s pain becomes apparent, and her older brother Peter begins to feel the constant agony of blame. Annie’s free will is gradually being robbed by a malevolent dark force. It demands a harsh sacrifice in exchange for wonderful rewards.
3. Get Out (2017)
Director- Jordan Peele

The African-American crew at the residence subsequently begins to exhibit some strange behavioral patterns, which Chris begins to notice. Chris finds himself in some unpleasant interactions with the attendees of the Armitages’ large party.
