The guys breakdown and discuss Ari Aster’s sophomore feature, Midsommar! Is this broad daylight, folk horror film going to be the next horror insta-classic? Come on and find out!
As usual before their feature review, Mike, Chris and Justin have their News On The March segment where they discuss current TV/Film news or the things they’ve been watching over the last week. Mike checked out the alligator thriller, Crawl, and the vastly improved second season of American Gods. Having just wrapped up his watch of the entire series, Justin discusses the surprisingly good Boy Meets World. Chris took his mom to see The Seventh Seal on the big screen and watched the third and latest season of Netflix’s Stranger Things.
As if all that discussion wasn’t enough, the guys move on to their feature review of Ari Aster’s Midsommar. The film which stars Florence Pugh and Jack Reynor, is a Wicker Man inspired folk horror film set in the brightest of daylight. How does this compare to Aster’s first feature, Hereditary? What themes is Aster tackling? Is this even an actual horror film? The answer to all these questions and much more can be found below:
