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. Ari Aster’s direction is very impressive. It’s not necessarily a violent movie but when it happens, it’s as gory as a Tarantino movie. The ending is especially disturbing.

The core of the film centers around Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) who have been dating for a couple of years, but are clearly not "together". Dani has family issues - and things quickly come to head when her sister and parents die in rather gruesome fashion. Out of a sense of guilt or grief, …
