Hereditary director Ari Aster answers some of the biggest questions that people have about the horror film's twists and turns.
Pete Mercer is a movie snob who regularly contributes words about movies and TV to Screen Rant, and would absolutely love any in-depth discussion or argument about good or bad movies on the Twitter-sphere. He has also been featured in Paste Magazine and is a copywriter for several other companies, all the while trying to escape the restaurant industry. (Also, if you’re currently looking for a writer, he’s probably available and looking for work.) His favorite filmmakers are Wes Anderson, Steven Spielberg, The Coen Brothers, Edgar Wright, Guillermo del Toro and Paul Thomas Anderson. His favorite film is Fargo, hands down. Also, he will defend Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman until his dying breath. He studied Film & Video at Georgia State University, and lives in Atlanta, GA. Y'allywood forever.
