One woman's journey to a remote Swedish village helps reveal to her an existence outside of American patriarchy and toxic men.

A film which splices its incredibly graphic gore and creeping horror with overblown, definitely-allowed-to-laugh sequences. For all of that, it's still an effective horror story.

If this was maybe 40 minutes shorter, it might have worked. As is, everything you think is going to happen happens and it's not worth the wait.

You feel the need to see every frame for fear of missing a single thing, even to the point of testing your bladder's resolve.

It's a film that is not fully illuminated. [Full review in Spanish]

Ari Aster's flower-draped folk-horror followup to 'Hereditary' was not everybody's cup of menstrual blood tea, but I loved it.

Midsommar is an exquisitely visceral cinematic experience that leaves you both physically and emotionally exhausted as the credits begin to wash over you.

I didn't enjoy watching it, but it had its validity.

While it may frustrate some viewers, and present an absolute affront to the tastes of others, for the discerning fan of screen horror it is an absolute must-see.

Combines the nightmare paganism of The Wicker Man with the stately, painterly elegance of The Shining.

Add to that the insidiously haunting score from The Haxan Cloak and you've got yourself the most desirable 2.5 hour tummy ache in existence.

Much of the film is keenly attuned to human failure and the ugliness of bad relationships, making for a magnetic but continually cringe-inducing ride.

As symbolically rich as a Jodorowsky hippie acid trip with the pagan matriarchal horror of The Wicker Man, Midsommar feels like a nightmare that started off as a dream.

There's a scary beauty in the themes and plot of Midsummer...
