Midsommar ★★★★★

Really loved this one. I enjoyed Hereditary a lot as well and this certainly has the same underlying sinister tone. It doesn’t have any jump scares and uses it’s unsettling tone and some shocking images which are really effective. The cast was really good as well. The whole thing owes a huge debt to one of my favourite horrors of all time which I won’t mention by name but those who have seen it will know which one it is. It also reminded me of kill list for the tone and also the way seeing some early grim images puts you on edge for the remainder of the film. 

The film is really well made and you can see where it is going throughout but that kind of added to feeling of the film. It’s not for the faint hearted and it is certainly not for everyone. 

Good to see some originality at the cinema and something a bit different despite its clear influences.  Really good watch but I probably won’t go there on holiday.
