[WATCH] A Summer Trip Turns Into nightmare in the new “Midsommar” trailer
The new Midsommar trailer is here and it wishes you a Happy Midsommar! Ari Aster’s follow-up to the unsettling family drama Hereditary looks equally twisted and terrifying. With only one film under his belt, Ari Aster has established himself as the master of modern horror. He describes the film as “a break-up movie with a generous amount of psychedelia that delves into something sinister”. Film’s vibrant imagery and the occult rituals are reminiscent of Robin Hardy’s The Wicker Man.
The official synopsis from A24 reads: “A couple’s vacation to a Swedish village takes a sinister turn when the insular townspeople invite them into a series of rituals that render their pastoral paradise increasingly unnerving, in this dread-soaked and viscerally disquieting psychological thriller.”
In Midsommar, Florence Pugh and Jack Reynor play a troubled couple that goes on a summer trip to save their broken relationship. The crazy festival in the remote town of Sweden involves ceremonies and dressing up. Director claims that Midsommar is going to be his last horror film for a while, as he hopes to tackle different genres in the future.
In addition to the main cast, the film stars William Jackson Harper, Will Poulter, Vilhelm Blomgren, and Ellora Torchia. It also includes the same crew members that worked on Hereditary, including cinematographer Pawel Pogorzelski, editor Lucian Johnston, and producer Lars Knudsen.
