There is a ton to be excited about with Midsommar, a horror/thriller that, from the looks of the trailer, should be absolutely terrifying. Ari Aster, who directed last year’s acclaimed feature Hereditary, is the director of this feature about a young American couple (Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor) who travel to a remote Swedish village for a midsummer festival.
This holiday in an environment filled with sunlight initially feels like an earthly paradise, but gradually the villagers’ actions become suspect, leading the tourists to ultimately regret their journey! Pugh’s star has continued to rise thanks to her lead work in Fighting With My Family and the miniseries The Little Drummer Girl, and Reynor, who also was the lead in CBS’ Strange Angel, was fantastic in Sing Street. With two excellent leads anchoring his narrative, Aster’s sophomore effort has the makings of a winner.
