In this post, you will find great Ari Aster Quotes. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
I know that I put a lot into ‘Hereditary’, and I’m proud of what it is. Beyond the fact that the film takes its time and asks for a certain amount of patience from the audience – and I hope it rewards that patience by the end – I know that I’m something of an aesthete. I care about aesthetics, and I love filmmaking.
The beauty of the horror genre is that you can smuggle in these harder stories, and the genre comes with certain demands, but mostly you need to find the catharsis in whatever story you’re telling. What may be seen as a deterrent for audiences in one genre suddenly becomes a virtue in another genre.
‘Hereditary’ is unabashedly a horror film. In a lot of ways, it’s in dialogue with other horror films. But I do know that it was important for me that the film functioned first as a family drama. I know that I’m never affected by anything if I’m not invested in the people to whom the genre things are happening.
I don’t necessarily consider myself a horror filmmaker.
