Everything that could possibly go wrong while traveling is what happens in Midsommar. Now, while that could usually be the theme of a good road movie or a comedy, this title is completely the opposite of that. When a couple takes travels to a small rural town in Sweden to try and save their relationship while one of them is facing personal issues. However, this travel was not entirely their idea, as they are simply tagging along with a group of friends that were already in for the trip. As they thought the trip could help them overcome their personal issues and get their relationship strong again
Little did they know that this dream-like trip was to turn into a nightmare in the blink of an eye. The celebration of the midsummer festival begins to take a darker tone as the celebrations get more and more unsettling. Soon enough they go from just being unsettling to being completely nuts, and they end up trapped in cult celebration with tons of violence and more disturbing events.
The folk horror is strong in this one, so anyone that’s a fan of the genre should be interested in checking it out. Written a and directed by Ari Aster, known for the terrifying Hereditary (2018), comes back to present the most nightmarish trip of the year when a simple trip and festival turn into the worst possible situation for the couple.
