Hereditary: Original Version 3 Hours Long

Both Cuts Well According to Director Ari Aster

The critics of the demon horror movie Hereditary are incedibly well. But according to director and screenplay writer Ari Aster, the movie is much shorter than originally intended. According to Aster, the movie was supposed to be 3 hours long::

So the original movie was much longer. We cut 30 scenes out. So I certainly know the work I had done to set up everything and to earn everything, but a lot of that stuff that we had earned in the longer cut, we cut for pacing. And so I’m actually extremely relieved that people still feel that everything’s earned, because it is actually … It’s less of a drama than it used to be. So I keep talking about it as this family tragedy, this family drama, that is going to be more of that than a horror film. But the fact is, we actually cut so much of that out, we didn’t cut any of the horror stuff out.

As for the question whether or not the Original Version will be released on Blu-ray, Aster said no:

I don’t know. I think … I wouldn’t like to release the full cut, because I think at three hours, it was long. [...] It certainly made it more meditative. It was more demanding. It was less of a mainstream film. It was a film that would have locked out a good portion of the audience, that I think is now invited … Is in. But it was a film that really took its time. And so there was about an hour more of material that was not horror, that was just about the family going through what they’re going through, and not communicating, and not doing what they need to do to come together.

It looks like that the studio's financial reasons for cutting so much footage are not the reasons in this particular case because Aster really seems to be satisfied with the shorter Theatrical Version. But will there never be a release of some longer version or perhaps of the longer version? Time will tell.
