After a year of being an instant horror tycoon with “that scene” in Hereditary, Ari Aster has utilized his slow-burn technique to Midsommar, a disconcerting, two-and-a-half-hour nightmare journey in a broad daylight to a (thankfully fictional) traditional Swedish summer festival that only happens every 90 years.

The plot focuses on a gang of American college scholars, entailing a not-so-happy pair, Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) who are tempted to take part in a competition, considering it be fun.
What begins as an idyllic refuge quickly deteriorates into an increasingly brutal and unusual competition at the hands of a pagan cult.

The less you know getting on into Midsommar, the more helpful it will be, by helpful, we imply “disturbing”.
This is a must-watch for all the ethical horror junkies who’ve grown cold-blooded to jump scare-filled scenes.
