Midsommar

Critics Consensus

Ambitious, impressively crafted, and above all unsettling, Midsommar further proves writer-director Ari Aster is a horror auteur to be reckoned with.

Movie Info

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. From the visionary mind of Ari Aster comes a dread-soaked cinematic fairytale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight.

Audience Reviews for Midsommar

    Tons of symbolism, foreshadowing, backed by incredible cinematography and a phenomenal lead performance from Florence Pugh. May not be everyone's cup of tea, but if you can stomach the gore it's worth every minute of it's 2.5 hour runtime.

    Ari Aster continues to showcase his bizarre yet deep storytelling with Midsommar. While pacing may feel profoundly lengthy, visually the film grabs all sense and takes it into a psychedelic trip while also conveying some disturbing and unsettling images and performances that may require more than one viewing to truly bask in the message of this provoking film. 3.8/5

    This film is like a double IPA, some will find it disgusting and some will enjoy it because they are used to the genre. It is certainly unique in that the entire film takes place in the daylight, but the story and sequences are too odd for me.

    Midsommar might genuinely be my big disappointment for 2019. I'm not saying it's bad. But coming into this on the back of not only the crazy good Hereditary from last year, but also the gushing praise from the online horror community, I guess my expectations were a little high. It doesn't make me feel good to say it, but honestly I'm glad I didn't see this in the cinema. Firstly because I think I might've been a little mad if I had forked out $25 to see this, based on the experience I ended up happening, but also secondly, because I don't much feel like going blind in the theatre from the sheer white exposure that takes up 97% of Midsommar's runtime.
