One of the most effective horror movies of recent memory is Ari Aster’s first feature film, Hereditary, and now one of the stars of the film has expressed his thoughts on shooting one particular scene.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Alex Wolff, who plays Peter Graham, has admitted the fatal car accident sequence in Hereditary left him feeling unsettled for a few days.
“I think it did mess with my head in the moment,” Wolff said. “I think the whole movie was kind of difficult. It kind of stuck with me. I think that scene in particular definitely stuck with me at least for a few days. But I think that movie was like a constant attention-taker. I think it haunted me for a while.”
“No, actually. That was not the case,” Wolff admitted. “For me, sometimes if they’re trying to make it too light, it’s kind of distracting. So, I sometimes have to just stay in the zone. I kind of just was wearing my headphones and trying to stay in the spirit of it. I think it’s sometimes too hard to completely jump in and out.”
