I need more before deciding whether or not he seems to be falling for his own hype.
"Do you laugh at jealousy?"

"No, I don't even laugh at seasickness! I happen to regard jealousy as the seasickness of passion."

Making a horror movie in this happy-go-lucky summer environment is a fun idea to me.

For sure, I just hope it stands out enough from Hereditary (which I loved). This doesn't quite suggest that to me...yet.

I love how even from a short trailer, it’s indelibly recognizable as an Ari Aster film. Horror is one of the last refuges of the cinematic auteur, and Aster is one of its best refugees.
That's some catch, that Catch-22.
