Midsommar ★★★★½

"Hello. There you are. You can't speak. You can't move. But this opens you up to it's influence, and it breaks down your defenses. Trust me. Alright? You will love it."

From it's lush scenery, to it's vividly striking cinematography and eerie atmosphere, Midsommar pleasantly invites you to take part in a daylit nightmare masquerading as the most pleasing place on Earth, slowly enveloping you in it's taut runtime before searing itself into your mind with it's final image.

P.S.: I expected something as horrific and emotionally stricken as Hereditary, and got something even worse. An invitation.

A welcome to the daylit pleasures of family, fun, pleasure, and natural delight, awashing you in it's lush scenery and methodical routines only to eat you alive when you dare to question the notion that some things are just "too good to be true."
