From A24, the company behind Hereditary, Mid90's, Lady Bird, and The Killing of a Sacred Deer, and written and directed by visionary filmmaker Ari Aster (Hereditary) comes dread-soaked cinematic fairytale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight.
Dani and Christian are a young American couple with a relationship on the brink of falling apart. But after a family tragedy keeps them together, a grieving Dani invites herself to join Christian and his friends on a trip to a once-in-a-lifetime midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. What begins as a carefree summer holiday in a land of eternal sunlight takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that render the pastoral paradise increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing.
★★★★ 'It will haunt you.' - Vox
★★★★ 'Another groundbreaker in horror from Hereditary's Ari Aster who mixes a modern breakup story with pagan rituals in Sweden. If you're looking for the scariest movie ever shot in blinding sunlight, the raw and riveting Midsommar is it.' Rolling Stone -
'Many things are possible in “Midsommar,” but the surest is that there’s nothing else like it at the movies. .' Wall Street Journal
'Set in broad daylight, during the time of Northern Europe's midnight sun, this horror movie isn't about getting the creeps so much as it is about the slow, methodical unmasking of horrors most human.' Common Sense Media
'A visceral, unique, utterly fucked-up experience that demands to be seen on the big screen, Midsommar is the horror movie to beat in 2019. Caution: contains distressing amounts of folk music.' Empire
'A horrifying blizkrieg of a breakup movie. Ari Aster's #Midsommar is an era-defining masterpiece.' Vice
'An emotionally devastating, slow-burn horror tale from the director of Hereditary.' IGN
