If you didn’t watch ‘Hereditary‘ last year, then you missed out on one of the best horror films of the year. The film cracked my top 10 list of 2018 (’cause you care) and it made nearly $80 million at the box office. It was ignored during awards season, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t an outstanding film.
Ari Aster, the filmmaker behind the movie, is back to creep us out again with his upcoming horror flick, Midsommar.
Described as a ‘Scandinavian folk horror,’ the film stars Florence Pugh as a young woman who reluctantly accompanies her boyfriend (Jack Reynor) on a summer trip to one of their friends’ hometown in rural Sweden. The vacation, however, quickly takes a turn, as the village’s midsummer celebration grows increasingly violent and strange, and is revealed to be part of a pagan cult.
Not only should you watch this movie because it looks great, but you should also watch it because Aster has announced he’s done with horror films for a long time. He will be focusing on other genres, so you best eat this one up.
A24 (love) will release the film inside theaters August 9, 2019. Check out the teaser trailer below…
