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.

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+

I Love movies that take me out of my comfort zone. This is that type of movie. Based on slaves being brought to America, yet still having the knowledge of their Ancient ways and that knowledge being passed down through the generations. This movie is based on real events and people. If you believe or know about the Orishas or Voldun you should appreciate this movie.

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.

'The Inheritance'
This movie has been sitting on the shelf since 2008 and is finally being released.
It's about a group of African American Cousins from different backgrounds that are summoned to a cabin/house in the woods during the dead of Winter with promises and visions of Dollar signs dancing in there heads. Unfortunately the only thing they find dancing when they wake up the next morning is a bunch of their older relatives in ceremonial African makeup and costumes chanting the name "Chakabazz" whom is a 200 year old Witch doctor that keeps his powers by using the blood from the descendants of Slaves.

The Story and idea are quite clever but it just doesn't play out in a way that satisfied me. Reasons being,there are virtually no gore effects or blood.
The cast was excellent and the acting very well done even for this somewhat over the top Genre piece.Keith David,Golden Brooks and the beautiful Rochelle Aytes were some of the actors that kept this movie in a watchable and almost enjoyable light.
It came off a bit cheesy at times which I'm a fan of ,if ordered.

I would have preferred this without cheese,too bad movies can't be like Burger King so you can have them "your way".
I imagine there are plenty of people that will enjoy this movie and I would have really enjoyed it as well if there had been a substantial amount of Blood and gore throughout, seeing as the plot did call for it.

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.

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!
