    Watched it 2x and liked it . My friends thought it was too weird and expected more violence maybe?

      They all about Fucked Up movies and asked me before watching if it was “ fucked up like The House That Jack Built?” I said yes , so expectations were maybe high on violence and not psychological.

    When I saw Hereditary, I had wished I had not watched it after words.. Is this like that? I don't know if I want to watch Midsommar because I don't like filling my head with negativity.

      I missed out on this one due to having a baby now, but I just watched it yesterday and I fell in love all over again with Aster. I was hooked from beginning to end I will go as far to say I enjoyed it a little more then Hereditary

      I also hope they release a director's Cut in 4k or just blu Ray

        Missed this in theaters. Just watched it on Redbox day 1. Liked it a bunch. Not sure I'd call it horror. Psyco-drama with some horror elements.

            Getting myself hyped up to see this. I thoroughly enjoyed Hereditary, but everyone I've shown it to didn't appreciate it.

              I loved the photography, the music, the acting was descent, but for me it's just a basic slasher with people going to a beautiful place and then finding that they are moving targets, but hey, it's an arthouse movie. That's where Laster magic is. Because if you take all the Aster nonsense and put graphics deaths, this movie becomes just another generic slasher, but he put some pictures here and there, some pagan dance a lot of wide angle shots, long scenes moving nowhere but perfectly build, characters dissapearing, but all of it makes the movie unique. I just think Ari Laster keeps fooling us telling simple stories but making them "artsy", "confusing" and long, oh and keep chopping some heads for shock, that seems to work for him.

                I actually prefer Midsommar over Hereditary. I know most people that like Hereditary, like it more than this film but I just loved Midsommar. I didn't know how to feel about Hereditary at first but grew to appreciate it on the second viewing. I want to watch Midsommar over and over again and now apparently there are hidden faces in the background of this movie. I can't wait to go looking for them.

                someone explain just what they actually did to mark all a sudden he's lured off by some chick to come back looking all puffy faced and also looked like a retarded zombie so wtf did they do to him

                  I finally watched this tonight and as a sick disturbing horror film it was very effective. I personally liked Hereditary much better but this was good too (so was the VVitch). To me the most disturbing part was the cliff jumps. Why is Ari retiring? He has at least 2 more high caliber films left.

                    I see what you mean about the wide spread release of this movie. I found it riveting however i could see how normal movie goers would dislike it...for multiple reasons. My friend asked how it was i said " really good! But not something u would be into."

                      That's what I wanted to hear "Ari delivered again" liked and subbed, now I just gotta figure out how to get a hold of the movie. My mainstream shitbrain movie theatre ain't showing it.

                          You're right when pointing out that you don't believe people when they say they want to see original films, which is one of the reasons I think we're seeing so many sequels and re-makes these days.
                          As for Midsommar, it's the best film I've seen in years and I'm glad that I appreciate it's genius.

                              I finally got to see this tonight! I loved it!! I’m definitely looking forward to the Blu-ray since the 30 some minutes of footage that was cut to prevent an NC-17 will be on it. I already want to rewatch this. Such an interesting and beautiful wild movie.

                                  As someone who suffers from crippling depression and anxiety, there is no other film in the history of cinema which has not only made as anxious as this movie did, but also portrayed anxiety so damn accurately. That relatability makes the film all the more disturbing. A first for me too while seeing this in theaters was that at the "cliff" scene, I genuinely started to feel nauseous.

                                  I'm ready to be amazed by the cinematography. People are stuck on remakes original ideas get so much crap from movie goers.

                                    Wtf ari aster is a saving grace for the horror genre let's hope theres many more to come.
                                    Btw are you talking about Slade Shepard from killer flicks? I hung out with him at a horror convention. Thats funny.

                                    Nice review! I love how thematically layered this film was. The plot itself is pretty simple and straight-forward, but the way its interwoven with relatable, yet dark themes is incredibly impressive! I guess I lucked out with my particular showing. There were only 6 other people there besides me and everybody was completely silent, even after the credits rolled. We did have two walk-outs though, just before the start of the third act.

                                          I was thinking of taking my Mum, who didn't like the end of Hereditary. I'm wondering if she's gonna like this. 🤔

                                        Years ago I can honestly say I probably wouldn't have liked this movie...thanks to hereditary it really changed how I view movies and opened my mind to how much meaning a movie can have. I walked outta this movie in awe! I loved it...can't wait for my 2nd watch. Great vid man!

                                        It is a well shot film...

                                        However it doesn't standout on it's own in the way Hereditary did. It borrows too much from The Wicker Man. There are shot to shot recreations of scenes from The Wicker Man. Maybe if there was an added supernatural twist? I feel Aster doesnt deviate too far from the template used to make it unique. I should have also never watched The Wicker Man right before seeing this film.

I really enjoyed this film, a great theater experience. this video is great example of how to do a spoiler free review. Spoiler Free videos are the most difficult for me to do.

                                                  Aster definitely continued with his 70s, slow burn, retro style that unfortunately today's millenial audiences might not get from Hereditary. People are hypocrites with the whole Hollywood makes nothing new, but they still mostly only see remakes, sequels and reboots. I will agree this is a movie most people won't get! Especially if they are not just familiar with 70s Hollywood style and cult films from the past like the original Wicker Man. But also cannot stomach very graphic imagery. I worry about movies like this finding an audience today in theaters because like the man says it defenitely id not for everyone. Its not a jump scare movie and you really are held in suspense throughout. But like Hereditary it will most likely become a new pardon the pun, cult, classic! Florence Pugh had to be one of the best suprises of the last year. I really loved her in The Last Kingdom on Netflix and also plan to check her out in Malevolent. Which I heard was not that great supposedly but I'll watch for her. There's also The Little Drummer Girl miniseries movie she was in and Fighting With My Family. Not a fan of The Rock but I'll watch for her! I wish I could say I was floored by the movie and I did think it was good but maybe Hereditary set the bar way to high for me and I have seen some of the similar cult film tropes, some, in other films. Also wanna point out the freat work done by Will Poulter in the film. We kind of new where his character was going by his smart ass nature.

                                                    Midsommar is a fucking gem! I don't know if it's recency bias, but I think I prefer it to Hereditary (which is also great). Movies that are "made for everyone" are often piles of shit because they're made by committee. Anything interesting has to be excised because some dipshit in a focus group doesn't get it, or they need to hit that PG-13 rating, or [insert any other decision that places commerce over artistry]. But, thanks to A24, Ari Aster has been allowed to bring his own artistic vision to life with minimal interference (if any, beyond "it can't be 4 hours long") and you get something really original. Sure, you could compare it to The Wicker Man (like some exec surely would, while saying no to the project), and it has some stuff that comes from Scandinavian myth, but it really comes from Ari going through a bad break up and processing it through his art. And that's pretty special in a time when so many movies that make it to the theaters end up being written and rewritten by half a dozen people.

                                                      This sounds like something I definitely need to see! Great review, thanks!🖤

                                                      Can you recommend some movies that are similar to Midsommar?

                                                        @Sinister Cinema Reviews Those are GREAT suggestions!!!! The only one I haven't seen is The Sacrament, though Ive heard of it. I hope we get more of these types of films, or at least discover lesser known films of this type. This is def my fave type of horror...films that are told in an original way and are dread inducing above all else!!!!💕💕💕

                                                        H2Finest Wicker man obviously but also picnic at hanging rock, the invitation, the endless (and resolution), the sacrament, kill list, and the conspiracy. Most of those are cult like films with a slower off kilter nature. I’d also recommend Blackcoats daughter and session 9 since they are both slower Art house films that are very unsettling.
