The house was constructed completely on sets on a soundstage in Utah in order to follow Ari Aster's shot list. They needed to be able to remove walls and ceilings in order to shoot the rooms to look exactly like the miniatures. See more »
(at around 13 mins) In the first bedroom scene with Annie getting into bed, the left clock displays 11:50 (digitally) and the right clock displays 10:50 (analogue). See more »
I rank this as the best horror movie I've seen. It's such a delicately made movie, where psychological terror is used in a smart manner. It's not jump scares, but rather a heavy uneasy feeling, that terrifies you for two straight hours. Everyone in the cinema sat on the edge of their seats every second - you rarely felt safe, as you can during daytime in other, sloppy horror flicks.
The acting is superb, especially Toni Collette, who performs her lifetime role as a mother coping with tragic loss. If you want to be scared out of your wits, while watching an elegant movie with beautiful cinematography, this one's for you.
