This morning brings the full trailer for the next horror film from the director of Hereditary, stepping up the anxiety without showing too much. Come inside to take a look!
The first teaser for Midsommar gave us a glimpse at the horrors that awaited us in Ari Aster’s latest horror movie, but this morning gives us a better overall look at the characters and story:
To be honest, I’m still not entirely sure what horrors await these characters (I think the first trailer actually focused on that more)…but the sense of unease and tension sprinkled throughout is impressive.
Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) 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.
Midsommar hits theaters on July 3, 2019.
