Editorial Reviews

Five ambitious cousins set out on a family reunion during the dead of winter. The purpose of the retreat is to secure their inheritance, a fortune that dates back many generations. Upon their arrival, Uncle Melvin (Keith David) welcomes them with open arms, but warns them to respect their family traditions. During the weekend, as each of the cousins mysteriously disappear, they learn the truth about their family legacy, blood ancestry and the ultimate sacrifice they must make in exchange for their beloved inheritance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Come Chakabazz come! September 30, 2011
By G.G.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just saw this movie last night. I got it for $5.20 (Amazon 3rd party seller) with free shipping for $25 or more of an order. It was very different. Call me crazy but it kinda reminds me of a Black version of "Scream".
There are no extras on the DVD other than a trailer for the movie.
This would be a good movie to show on "Halloween". Here is one question for folks after seeing the movie:
Was Karen having sex with her cousin Henry? I sort got that in the movie. Anyone else?
During the beginning of the movie she said, "We need to tell them about us?"
Did anyone recognize "Aunt Bee" as the mean lady from "Antwone Fisher"?
I just found out from another website that Karen and Henry are unrelated by blood.
I kinda thought Henry might be adopted, so I guess he was.
Everyone knows, when stuff starts to happen, you stay together!
The ending had me screaming, "What?!?".
The ending didn't fit but maybe the director didn't know what else to do.
How often do you see an entire black cast in a horror movie?
I would watch this movie again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible, terrible, terrible. February 15, 2012
<strong>The Inheritance</strong> (Robert O'Hara, 2011)

Because I have seen so few 2011 releases so far, I haven't even thought about coming up with a Best Movies of 2011 list. However, I can tell you that when I have seen enough to compile a Worst Movies of 2011 list, there's every chance that <em>The Inheritance</em>, a terminally stupid attempt at a supernatural slasher film, will be on it.

Plot: five siblings--Lily (<em>Madea's Family Reunion</em>'s Michelle Aytes), Karen (<em>Beauty Shop</em>'s Golden Brooks), Tyrone (<em>Stomp the Yard</em>'s Darren Dewitt Henson), Simpson (<em>Men of Honor</em>'s Shawn Michael Howard), and Henry (<em>Romeo Must Die</em>'s D. B. Woodside), along with Simpson's boss and his wife (Edward Nattenberg in his first feature appearance and <em>Prelude</em>'s Jenny Weaver)--are on their way to a family house in the middle of nowhere (what part of nowhere isn't mentioned, but it's snowing, so doubtful it's in the Deep South. This becomes important). When they get there, the rest of the family hasn't arrived yet, but there's a note attached to a large box of liquor sitting on the bar in the great room from Uncle Melvin (<em>The Thing</em>'s Keith David) telling them to enjoy themselves till the rest of the cast shows up. You can imagine what the next fifteen-ish minutes of this less-than-ninety-minute movie entails. In any case, eventually the older generation shows up, and that's when things get creepy, or are supposed to, anyway. You see, the family has a generations-old blood pact with a spirit named Chakabazz (<em>Girl Play</em>'s Lanre Idewu), and in order for that pact to stay in place, they have to sacrifice a virgin. And despite her "I'm a lesbian, not a virgin!

2.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't Bad., wasn't Good.., **21/2* stars September 4, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Inheritance is one of those movies where you've got the great star cast, You got the perfect location, a workable set, decent cameras & lightin.., But mannn!, Your script is weak when it came time to put the "Boo!!!" into people... It was about as scary as holding a flashlight up to the chin.. When you decorate your house for Holloween scary.., Being pulled over by a cop scary.., The script was just weak... The young actors have done some Great stuff, I can vouche for them.., But the director & producers weren't serious about this product when it came to suspense or horror, Even the "Ritual" love scene drew a "Yawn" and we're talking about the " Up & Coming" Golden Brooks who's movie debut didn't leave any singed or wow recall in my mind the way a Sanaa, Halle, Gabrielle or any "idol worthy" actress gets a "double take" for... the movie's a watchable C+

1.0 out of 5 stars WHERE THERE'S NO WILL GET OUT OF THE WAY June 15, 2011
My wife and I have a hobby of rating our movies after viewing them. She liked THE INHERITANCE while I didn't think much of it. Since the task of writing reviews is my job, you'll get my opinion. Set in snowy Minnesota, the convoluted plot follows a African-American family coming together to see what their inheritance will be. We meet "the elders" who will choose one to inherit the family's "inheritance." BUT it's not money--oh no--it's something quite different.
Of course, there are dark secrets involving slaves, demons, curses etc. By the time the film's over, the cast dwindles, mostly off-screen which is odd since the film is unrated.
Director Robert O'Hara tries gimmicky techniques such as split screen and flashy CSI-like editing--that do little to advance the story. Most of the acting sinks to sit-com histrionics, except for Keith David who seems to be having a good time, even when chanting "Chakkabazz" or whatever?
While I appreciate the effort to avoid African-American profiling. THE INHERITANCE just didn't make the grade for me. Sorry, dear!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie June 7, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This Film should have been promoted better, I loved it this film had everything all the way down to the African Griot story telling with the drums. The ultimate Blood Ritual crazy was very spooky.
