I Wrote my First Movie Review While Giving Birth to a Camera. It has followed me ever since. Please don't mind the Mess.

According to the well of unfiltered information and totally centered opinions about movies called the internet, common symptoms and side effects of a peanut allergy include skin reactions such as redness, swelling or giant head, tightening of the throat or leggings, a crater opening in the middle of downtown right by the elementary school you went to and it swallowed Mrs. Pemberton your former elementary school teacher that was about to retire, and a runny nose.

In the interest of public safety, here are four horror movies like Hereditary that are allergic to peanuts.

I am f*cking ecstatic that I can disabuse you of that notion. Maybe your ignorance would have killed you or someone you loved. And if you’re wondering about a spoiler alert to (at the time of this writing) a 4-year old horror movie, deal with it. If you haven’t seen Hereditary by now, you just don’t want to. But by all means watch all 50 Marvel movies in chronological order while also working in the Disney Plus shows because that’s an excellent use of your time.

This list will save lives. If not yours, then Chad and Karen’s. Paimon says so.

Spoiler- Beware of Peanut Allergies!

1) Men (2022)

Alex Garland’s uneven but mostly compelling follow up to 2018’s Annihilation has The Lost Daughter’s Jesse Buckley traversing to the English countryside after a traumatic incident involving a terrible boyfriend. As you might now, all the men she encounters in the movie all look like Rory Kinnear. As you very well know, looking like Rory Kinnear is a common peanut side effect commonplace specifically in England. By certain peanut farms, entire populations both female and male and those with different pronouns all look like Rory Kinnear so I guess it doesn’t matter what your pronouns are if you all look like Tanner from the Daniel Craig James Bond movies. One of the more divisive horror movies of the year, Men also can quicken your pulse and (if you’ve seen it) the final 15 minutes of the movie are what happen if you watch Men and are allergic to peanuts.

2) The Blob (1988)

Meg Penny (Shawnee Smith) is the greatest movie cheerleader ever to lead cheers in a movie. She can perform at a high school halftime show in the afternoon and spray machine gun fire later that night. The 1988 film takes place in unfortunate Harborville, California. Not just because a meteorite crashes and a jelly-ish ooze terrorizes and kills everything in its path, albeit very slowly. Harborville’s blob problem wouldn’t have been as large or blobby had it not been for the pervasive peanut allergy that affected key members of the community, making the blob get exponentially larger as the movie went on. Had Kevin Dillon’s Brian kept a vat of epinephrine in his giant 80s hair, countless Harborville lives might have been saved.

3) Nightbreed (1990)

Clive Barker’s imperfect but still engrossing monster movie has Craig Scheffer rocking a leather jacket and David Cronenberg saying his lines…the…exact…same…way. It also has Midian, a world not of our world but with creatures all allergic to peanuts. They were banished to Midian because of anti-peanut allergy legislation. It’s supposed to be an allegory for something no matter which one of 15 different versions you watch. The monsters all have different allergic reactions to peanuts, whether it’s growing a vagina on a forehead or being made out of nothing but whiskers, Midian is the place where the peanut allergic can thrive…unless they are hunted down. Nightbreed was much maligned when it came out but now has a cult following. It’s a well-intentioned if scattershot undertaking, but worth at least one watch for horror fans.

4) Antlers (2021)

You mix an Oregon meth lab with peanut allergies, and you get Antlers. You just wish it was scarier in parts instead of draggy and glacially portentous. Young Lucas (Jeremy T. Weaver in a wonderful performance) is bummed because his meth lab dad and his partner are brutally killed by…something. Lucas now has an affinity for roadkill and hanging out in caves. Concerned schoolteacher Julia (Keri Russell) is worried about little Lucas. And she should be. Because something is in those caves. Something that wants flesh. Something that might be allergic to peanuts and the common side effect that nut allergies can lead to ritual sacrifices and the lust for human flesh (not medically proven but it’s true in this movie). The movie itself has good ideas but the normally dependable director Scott Cooper misses in its execution making Antlers intermittently effective at best.
