From the director of Hereditary.
Ari Aster’s Hereditary was a smash hit last year, between the waves critical praise to the surprising legs it had the box office for what an off the wall and particularly niche horror flick it was with audiences. Now, wasting no time in a follow up, Aster already has his sophomore effort up and running with Midsommar, a horror film that seems to be doing to relationships as to what Hereditary did to family matters. Here’s the first trailer:
The synopsis is as follows:
A couple travels to Sweden to visit their friend’s rural hometown for its fabled mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.
Midsommar comes out on August 9th, 2018.
