Midsommar ★★★★½

"Listen. You can’t speak. You can’t move. Alright? Good."

Rewatch Review: Trippy daytime madness, Ari Aster's 'Midsommar' kicks off with a bleak, haunting opening before slowly throttling the intensity and uncertainty as a group of characters find themselves celebrating what should be an exciting summer Swedish festival that's anything but relaxing. It's one of the rare horror films that takes place almost entirely when the sun is out but it never fails to be terrifying. The clues quickly fall into place before an explosive finale that's as rewarding as it is shocking. Florence Pugh's performance is one of the major highlights here - Aster always gets an insane performance out of his female leads, and she somehow manages to be on the level of Toni Collette's devastating performance in 'Hereditary.' This one is a must see, uniquely chilling and full of mysterious dread.
