This is the movie I expected from Hereditary. Midsommar is a visually haunting beast of a horror movie. Don’t let the warm bright cinematography and folksy music fool you. The mood is never not creepy and unsettling. Florence Pugh gives another raw intense performance as a troubled young woman invited to join her friends’ trip to Sweden where they all find themselves at the mercy of a sinister pagan cult.
