Film - Midsommar


This summer, let the festivities begin. Watch the teaser trailer for Ari Aster's foray into Scandinavian folk horror, Midsommar...

“You can’t speak, you can’t move. But this opens you up to the influence. And it breaks down your defences. Trust me. You’re gonna love it.”

No it's not a film version of Midsomer Murders!

But that's really all we know about the actual story of the film other than it's about a couple who to their friend’s Swedish countryside hometown for a mid-summer festival and encounter a pagan cult. The trailer certainly has elements of Wickerman with added flower-crowns.

Written and directed by Hereditary director  Ari Aster, the film stars Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, William Jackson Harper, and Will Poulter and is due to hit cinemas on 16th August.
