The first thing writer-director Ari Aster felt after the midnight premiere of "Hereditary" at the Sundance Film Festival was relief.Then headlines started popping up in the early hours of the morning declaring that the film had restored faith in the genre, that it was the most traumatically terrifying horror movie in ages and that star Toni Collette should even get an Oscar nomination.Perhaps it's because Aster doesn't think of his first feature as a horror film.The script came to Collette after she told her agent that she didn't want to do anything heavy for a bit.Aster's next film is about death and strange happenings in a remote Swedish town with "unique midsummer traditions".
