Cancer Man’s review published on Letterboxd:
At the time when I saw this movie in theaters, I was very sleep-deprive and the movie sucked a lot of energy out of me, I however did watch the whole movie and understand what it was doing and was rolling with it, but I had to emotion nor was I invested with any of the characters, I need a rewatch to full give a proper review...... so instead I’m gonna tell you guys a dumb story that happened to me after watching the movie.
When the movie was over all I wanted to do was go home and sleep, I didn’t have the movie in my mind. I got into the car and drove home and on the car ride, because I was falling a sleep I decided to talk to myself about the movie and what had happened and I kept saying how dumb it was and that I actually didn’t like it at all and I said it’s themes and story where too scrambled and lacked connection and off I’d rant and rant. As I got home it’s was pitch black, a lot of you don’t know this but I live in the middle of nowhere (like a farm) surrounded by cornfields. My family had left for vacation for a few days and it was only me and my dad and as I arrived home, my dad was no where insight. I was home alone in the dark and for some reason I was kinda scared. A lot of my friends and family don’t know this, but I get very paranoid, especially when I lack sleep or if I’ve been awake for too long. Inside the house in the dark, because of this weird fear and paranoia I turn on every single light in the house and closed all the doors!!! And felt like something was behind me and I had this feeling like I was being watched. Hahahahaha and instead of brushing my teeth in the bathroom, I brushed them at the dinner table, walking around the table like a fucking maniac!! The fear and paranoia was just too great!!! And as I ran into my room and fall asleep I had a stupid ass nightmare about the movie!!
In this nightmare, there was this small super pale white girl wearing a white dress just like in the movie and her hair was pitch black and long as fuck. In the dream she haunted my brothers room and I banged at the door begged for her to come to my room instead and to terrorize me and to not harm my brother. As this happened she mocked me and laughed at me for trying so hard.... after that I don’t remember what happened, but I some how managed to get the scary girl into my room and then she attacked me and from there I jump out of my bed and go “woah...”
Hahahahaha so yeah moral of the story is never watch Midsommar sleep-deprived 😂
If this movies mission was to fuck me up, well it certainly did.
