Midsommar ★★★★

Sommartime Sadness.
Where Hereditary hid in the shadows, Midsommar struts proudly into the spotlight in its beautiful yet disturbing glory.
Mixing such a demented story in such a lush location makes for one hell of an enthralling juxtaposition.
Managing to be hilarious, nauseating and fascinating all at once, it perfectly builds tension and unease culminating in an insane final act that only Aster could cook up.
He revels in trauma, which is obvious even from the very opening scene, and yet somehow manages to up the stakes throughout.
Feeling claustrophobic whilst being set in wide open spaces, with trippy visuals, an unpredictable plot and an equalling intriguing setting, Midsommar is absolutely horrifying but you can’t look away for a second.
