Midsommar ★★★

I get the sense that Ari Aster is very good at horror surrounding the family unit. I haven't seen Hereditary, but from what I've heard, the most disturbing element in that has to do with a family disrupted, and I found that to certainly be the case in Midsommar, with the first ten minutes being the most disturbing the film got. Everything else felt very predictable to me. There weren't any legitimate surprises after the very beginning scene of the film, everything progressed as expected, which was disappointing. I don't think this is a bad film, but it didn't bring anything new to the table (and I don't watch much horror).
