Jordan Peele talks horror with Midsommar director Ari Aster in Fangoria




  1. >It’s a very unique feeling for a film to conjure because after it ended, I found myself looking back at the final act like, “Holy s‑‑‑.” That was some of the most atrociously disturbing imagery I’ve ever seen on film, and yet I experienced it with this open-mouthed, wild-eyed gape. I think that part of how we get there is never reducing the villains to any kind of snarling monsters with an evil agenda.

    This is exactly what I took away from his previous, *Hereditary*. In most cases one would be shielding their eyes and attempting to look away but Aster had me in awe because I couldn’t rationalize what I was experiencing. It was terrifying and emotional. Ari Aster is hauntingly unique and I can’t wait for the visual abuse of *Midsommar*.

  2. If you haven’t seen Asters short film The Strange Thing About The Johnsons do yourself a favor. It’s wild lol

  3. Hearing such high praise from another filmmaker is exciting enough, but the fact that it’s coming from Peele makes the hype so much greater. I’m so ready for this to finally come out but… also not ready at all.

    Side note: if you’re a fan of Aster’s horror films and other independent films from A24, you should check out r/A24! It’s a small community but we’ve got a cool marathon going and post news/trailers/etc. daily.

  4. Haha god all these people in these comments brigading because peele is involved. Imagine if Brie Larson got cast in a peele movie. I think there would be a collective meltdown or mass suicide.

  5. Anyone have a link to the full article and/or the one with Peele and PTA that was referenced?

  6. Am I the only one that think his (JP) movies are overrated? It’s just one of those things where I don’t understand all the hype around his movies. Looking forward to Midsommar tho.

  7. One of these is not like the other…

    (Spoiler alert: it’s Peele. Peele is nowhere near as good as Aster.)

  8. Jordan Peele is an overrated hack, whose social commentary is as subtle as a freight train and as deep as a puddle.

  9. Get Out is your one hit wonder Jordan. Us sucked and if you’re gunna make your films starring only black people? Sorry, I’ve already seen that movie.
