Marina Antunes [Celluloid 03.05.19] horror



Writer/director Ari Aster left a big impression last year with the release of his debut feature Hereditary and he's not wasting any time when it comes to delivering his follow-up which looks to be as traumatic as his debut.


Midsommar stars rising star Florence Pugh as Dani, a young woman who reluctantly agrees to join her boyfriend on a summer trip to a camp where everything is a little too bright, a little too friendly and a tad too perfect to be real and where her summer vacation slowly turns sour.


Along with Pugh, the movie also stars Will Poulter, Jack Reynor, William Jackson Harper and a long list of Swedes.



Anyone who has seen Hereditary will be hard pressed to watch this first trailer for Midsommar and not see the signs of bad things to come written all over every scene though in reality, things don't get really weird here until the final few moments of the trailer where sound design brings the terror to life.


If Aster is able to re-create the tension he brought to Hereditary to his new movie, I expect Midsommar is going to be a fantastic sophomore effort.


Midsommar opens August 3.



Recommended Release: The Wicker Man

No trailer for me! I don't need to be sold on this. Also, I'm pleased to read that Aster is taking a (long) break from horror after this. He's obviously really good at it, but I'd love to see what other ideas he has.

I kept expecting John Nettles to appear.
