At the end of Hereditary, there's a scene where Annie is bagging her head on the attic door, then a few moments with Peter discovering things in the attic, then suddenly Annie appears floating at the attic's ceiling.

But how did she get there in the first place? Did the cult open up the attic door for her in the background? Is this ever explained?

    This is a horror-themed super-natural movie, we cannot really use common sense or physics to explain every scene. – Yu Zhang Jun 27 '18 at 6:27

    @YuZhang I know, but often even supernatural elements have rules. For example, in Hereditary, we know Paiman can only enter people when they are at their weakest. – Tin Man Jun 27 '18 at 8:09
  • the head of Annie is part of the ritual .. i think it's a fair assumption to make that the cult let her in when Peter was looking at his picture. – John Dec 28 '18 at 10:08
