“Hereditary” is so all over the place that it’s often incoherent.
However, it is also a disturbing horror movie with the sort of burned-in-your-brain sequences that will jolt you awake in the middle of the night.

The movie opens with a funeral. Annie (Toni Collette), an artist who specializes in dollhouse dioramas, has just lost her mother. Apparently the two weren’t close. “Should I feel sad?” she asks her husband, Steve (Gabriel Byrne).
