New movie from HEREDITARY director Ari Aster


A couple travels to Sweden to visit their friendís rural hometown for its fabled mid-summer festival, but what begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.

Probably a bad idea but I have high hopes for this one

I feel like this is going to be disturbingly fucked up, I hope so.

Me too...trailer brings on this feeling of 'oh fuck'...loved it! EEL this will live up to the promise...how can they go wrong  :thinking:

ACTUALLY, the only thing that could fuck this is interference from retarded producers...

I really hope that this film is filled with more disturbing scenes than the trailer, the only thing that could fuck this up is them literally showing all the climax scenes in the trailer and the rest of the film being filled with boring filler which is pretty much what always happens with these types of movies

Described as "The Wizard of Oz for perverts".

Quote
Ari Aster's visual references for his Scandinavian folk horror are Black Narcissus (1947), Hard to Be a God (2013), Macbeth (1971), and Tess (1979).


Quote
Will Poulter has said the film is better than Hereditary

Quote
According to Ari Aster, this was meant to be his first horror movie since Hereditary was intended to just be a family drama.


Two more sleeps... :red_heart:

Better than Hereditary?? I honestly loved Hereditary so I'm even more excited.

I've never seen Hereditary. When it was in theaters I thought it looked horrible from the trailers and didn't have any interest in seeing it. Maybe I'll check it out when it's on the Netflix or something.

It's on Amazon Prime, if you have that.

Hereditary did a good job of hiding what it was actually about in the trailer, so give it a watch for sure

Nice!

I'm planning on checking it out tonight as well. Probably the 10pm showing.

 :wideeyed:

Holy fuck! WTF. I feel there is no way anyone can predict what the next scene was gonna entail. This was insane.

One scene left me, well, my mouth agape. This was fucked up. Multiple viewings are in order.



All that being said. I liked Hereditary more. :)

How similar is it to Wicker Man?

Post by: woodenheart on July 03, 2019, 08:18:39 PM
How similar is it to Wicker Man?

Just in the aspect that it's a cult.
Title: Re: Midsommar {2019}
Post by: CountOrlok on July 03, 2019, 11:22:35 PM
Reason I say that, yeah, I like movies about cults.  The Wicker Man is probably the best of them.

Wooden, are you able to explain why you liked Hereditary more? Iím just curious.

I dunno. I may have to recant that statement.  :thinking: I love them both equally, they are like day and night.  :azn:

They each have their own specialness. Hell the opening scene here was just amazing. This director works everything so good. Camera angles, music, he builds up so much dread, I almost flinch wondering whats coming in the next scene then its totally not what I was expecting, then it is but 10 times more in your face.....ahhhhh, I loveth this director.  :red_heart:

WOW Ari Aster  :red_heart: Will be keeping an eye on you!

Need more directors like him in horror, he is the new and disturbing that has been missing for years in horror, and the fact that he is bringing it to the mainstream, I can't find a bad thing to say about him and his style

He captures atmosphere so beautifully, to the point it can make you sick to your stomach

I can't wait to see what else he has to bring in the years to come
