"Midsommar" isn't just a great horror movie... It is also one of the best movies ever made about living with mental illness.

Grim, grisly and downright sickening, Midsommar is a feel-bad horror film about suicide, mercy killings, insanity, graphic nudity, religious hysteria, and the kind of grotesque imagery that exists for no other reason than shock value.

Don't let the studio-manufactured hype fool you; this is a midsummer's matinee bore.

Midsommar has that sort of staying power, which makes it a better choice for horror aficionados than the other midsummer garbage currently being dumped into theaters.

"Midsommar" is an upsetting movie, and I mean that word in pretty much every way you can think of... But the truth is that he's just two movies into his career, and it's probably only a matter of time before he figures out how to stick the landing.

Ari Aster's folk-horror flick is frightening, beautiful, and just a little unhinged.

"Midsommar" is no slouch on chills, but they creep up slowly, like a bad trip from one of the Swedes' festive glasses of hallucinogenic tea, and are leavened with an occasional dash of humor.

You laugh at its audacity, or maybe just to keep from losing your own grip on reality.

There's no doubt that Aster is an artist of considerable gifts; the question is whether he's an artist of ideas deeper than turning the smiles of a summer night into sinister rictus grins.

"Midsommar" gets it right. This twisted daylit nightmare is a masterpiece of mood, all the more disturbing since it's set entirely underneath the bright, beating sun. Anyone can be scared of the dark. Ari Aster makes you scared of the light.
