Is Hereditary 2 a good idea?
Hereditary presented an electrifying performance by Toni Collette who starred as Annie Graham. Annie gets to know that her mother is part of a cult of demon king Paimon. They wanted to use Annie’s son played by Alex Wolff to be a vessel for Paimon.

The sense of ambiguity acts as magic and the mystery never fails to intrigue the audiences. This has also led to many fans being concerned over the idea of a potential sequel as we have seen many projects that don’t require a sequel.
