Description

Dani and Christian are a young American couple with a relationship on the brink of falling apart. But after a family tragedy keeps them together, a grieving Dani invites herself to join Christian and his friends on a trip to a once-in-a-lifetime midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. What begins as a carefree summer holiday in a land of eternal sunlight takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that render the pastoral paradise increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing. From the visionary mind of Ari Aster comes a dread-soaked cinematic fairytale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight.

    Full frontal nudity. Death from high places. Blood. Needy girlfriend. A tribal culture with lots of flowers. Lots of homemade drug use - cup of mushroom tea, anyone. I did think the costumes were beautiful.

    Terrible acting, terrible story that made very little sense, and even poorer costumes and make-up design. Do not watch this
  • Man oh man!

    I was excited to see this movie. I was pretty disappointed half way through it. The acting is pretty good, the camera work is nice but, there is not much substance. It’s sort of like the movie with Nicholas Cage, The Wicker Man. It’s very long and some scenes were pretty gruesome and you can clearly see how mentally unstable everyone is. It’s not the money I spent on it I wouldn’t mind back but, the two plus hours I stayed up to watch it that would be nice.

    Great thriller/horror(leans more on the thriller). Creepy and original. This film didn’t overdo the symbolism like Hereditary and I actual enjoyed Midsommar more. This is a movie for those that appreciate the art of film and don’t mind the grotesque. There aren’t any cheap scares here.

    I personally love this movie, it definitely is slow but the buildup was worth the climax. Most films are really predictable but I had no idea what to expect as this film went along.
  • Disappointing

    This movie simply recycles all of the basic elements of the original Wickerman. Hereditary was a superbly creepy movie and I was expecting the same with this movie. Unfortunately, it never materialized. This is a painfully slow and plodding movie, which seems to take an eternity for anything interesting to develop. Lots of dialog, lots of pagan dancing, celebration and wasting time, and little else. Quite a let down.
  • Stupid Movie

    Don't waste your time. A bizarre and ultimately stupid movie that just keeps getting worse the longer you watch.

    I have long awaited to see this movie and like all movies, I paid little attention to the reviews; especially the negative ones. Sure; I read over a few, but got sick and tired of reading about how much of a “waste of time” it was or how “disgusted” and “repulsed” everyone was making it out to be. All too many times, I’ve seen an excellent movie get panned by armchair critics who choose one star reviews to suffice for their complete lack of intelligence or insight. Perhaps, that’s why I have always been a huge fan of psychological thrillers; those which make a person actually think instead of mindlessly gawking at meaningless drivel (which makes up nearly every horror, sci-fi and action flick these days). In other words, I HAD to see this; and was nearly convinced that my assumptions would be right again. BUT I WAS WRONG. DEAD WRONG. After 2.5 hours, I’m still wondering why the hell this movie was even made? It could have been good — had there been a point to it or had it focused on actually telling a story. But that never happens. Instead, viewers are forced to wade through endless scenes of human sacrifices, suicide pacts, cannibalism, graphic nudity, burning bodies, mercy killings and just about every other absurdity Ari Aster could throw in. All in all, the only part of this movie that was disgusting and/or disturbing was the “brainchild” who created it. Save your money.
