Most people go to horror films to get a good fright from things that go bump in the night.

Not this one.

Midsommar, directed by Ari Aster, is one of the very few horror flicks that is set in broad daylight, and it’s leaving viewers fricken terrified, with one admitting that its horrifying images have been seared into their brain.

Midsommar

The premise is this: a couple and their two friends travel to a Swedish country town for a summer solstice festival that apparently happens every 90 years. Sounds pretty lovely, until it isn’t. Let’s just say that things get barbaric and culty.

This comment on YouTube basically sums it up:

Before midsommar: I was scared when I sleep with the lights turned off

After midsommar: I was scared when I sleep with the lights on too

Good luck everyone.
