I watched Ari Aster’s last film, Hereditary, following all the buzz around it, but it was kind of a letdown. I’m giving Aster another try with Midsommar, which some friends assure me is better than the former horror movie. A classic setup involves some Americans visiting a foreign country for a festival, in this case one that occurs only every 90 years.
That’s a lot of time to plan, but it also seems to be run by occultists so the food is probably going to suck. People keep getting dosed with psilocybin as well, and no safe space to come down would be awful. I doubt site services will be the scariest part of this movie, though, and I do look forward to checking it out.
