‘Hereditary’ looks incredible

Well, this generation's Exorcist is here. Or, at least that's what Time Out New York is heralding Hereditary as. And, honestly, after watching the first trailer, Time Out's Joshua Rothkopf is right on the money. As Brenda Meeks once said, "Damn, this is some scurry shit!"

A24's latest addition to its impressive indie horror roster (The Witch, It Comes at Night, Green Room) left Sundance audiences saying it's the "most traumatically terrifying horror movie in ages." Rothkopf continues his Exorcist parallel, saying, "Heads will spin more savagely." Meanwhile, SlashFilm reports there's one moment in the film that had its Sundance viewers "jumping as one." Sign. Us. Up.

Writer-director Ari Aster's debut feature film essentially preys on one of life's biggest horrors of all: family. The death of a matriarch begins an exploration of grief and the unknown familial secrets such grief begins to expose and unravel. What sort of spiritual haunting did the deceased curse this family with? Why is their daughter decapitating birds outside of school? Who's possessing the son to the point of self-mutilation? What in god's name is causing all these ants to devour a body and other bodies to levitate? Honey bees, your guess is as good as ours. Either way, we're hooked.

Hereditary, which by the way stars Toni Collette, opens June 8.

The company announced its sustainability plan, and it's pretty impressive

Yesterday, Zara, one of the largest global fashion retailers, announced its sustainability plan for the next five years, which includes its goal to make its collections from 100 percent sustainable materials before the year 2025. Given just how many collections and pieces Zara puts out each year, this goal is pretty ambitious.

Is this keeping you up at night?

In celebration of SpongeBob's solar return (it's the 20th anniversary of SpongeBob SquarePants' first episode), HipDot—best known for their influencer collaborations and marble packaging—launched a skin-care and makeup collection inspired by everyone's favorite underwater sponge. For the most part, the collection is everything you'd expect; the eyeshadow palette features show-appropriate shades like Bikini Bottom Blue, and there's a coconut oil-infused lip gloss called Jelly Fish. Cute, right?
