FROM THE DIRECTOR OF "HEREDITARY" COMES THIS CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED FOLK HORROR TALE!
I have yet to see HEREDITARY (too many movies - so little time!) so I'm not exactly sure what I'm in for when I check out MIDSOMMAR! I've heard a lot of positive buzz about this film (which has been frequently compared to THE WICKER MAN), so I suppose I'll give it a whirl when it comes out October 8th! I should also note that a longer Director's Cut is getting a physical media release on October 28th, with nearly a half-hour of footage added back in, so plan accordingly!
Synopsis: After a family tragedy, a young American couple joins some friends at a midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. What begins as a carefree summer holiday takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that grow increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing. From the visionary mind of Ari Aster, comes this dread-soaked cinematic fairy tale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight.
The film stars Florence Pugh (upcoming BLACK WIDOW and LITTLE WOMEN) as a young woman who reluctantly joins her boyfriend on a summer trip to a remote Swedish village for a midsummer festival, which becomes more and more sinister as the days pass. The film also stars Jack Reynor (KIN, FREE FIRE, Strange Angel), William Jackson Harper (TV's The Good Place, THEY REMAIN, TV's Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan), and Will Poulter (THE MAZE RUNNER, DETROIT, THE REVENANT).
