Midsommar (18)

Thriller, Horror

US horror thriller in which a couple travel to Sweden to visit a rural mid-summer festival organised by a pagan cult.

The critical consensus

A visceral, unique, utterly fucked-up experience that demands to be seen on the big screen, Midsommar is the horror movie to beat in 2019. Caution: contains distressing amounts of folk music.

*****Nick De Semlyen, Empire Online, 27/06/2019

Meandering and underwhelming. One bad trip.

Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 29/06/2019

Midsommar still has the ability to transfix you with its hypnotic glare.

****(*)James Mottram, The List, 01/07/2019

Midsommar features a standout performance from Florence Pugh and an expertly assembled atmosphere of dread, even if its lacks the propulsion and all-consuming terror of Hereditary.

****(*)Matt Maytum, Total Film, 03/07/2019

Florence Pugh is plunged into a terrifying pagan bacchanal in a magnificent folk-horror tale from Hereditary director Ari Aster.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 03/07/2019

Director Ari Aster’s follow-up to last year’s Hereditary proves he’s far from a one-hit wonder.
