Disturbing new horror movie 'Midsommar' leaves 'images permanently seared into your brain'
Remember Hereditary last year?
For many, it was the best (and some say scariest) horror movie of the year, and for good reason. I don't know about you guys, but I was seriously disturbed by it even if I wasn't jumping out of my seat.
Here's the trailer for that creepy classic:
Now, it looks like the same director (Ari Aster) isn't giving us much of a breather - instead giving us another horror just a year after the last.
Midsommar sees a couple travelling to Sweden to visit a rural town's mid-summer festival. While it starts out as an idyllic retreat, it soon devolves into a violent and strange competition at the hands of a pagan cult. You might think you know where it's going, but according to a lot of people who have seen it - you ain't seen nothing yet.
The movie came out earlier this week, and it's already scaring the hell out of horror fans. Many have flocked to social media to vent about the gruelling experience they went through - and it sounds pretty damn intense.
Check out the trailer for yourself:
If you turn over to Twitter, you'll find a lot of people feeling pretty traumatised by what they've seen. Indiwire editor, Zack Sharf, even said that there were images from the movie so scary they "have been permanently seared into my brain".
If you're looking for something to keep you up at night, it looks like Midsommar is a safe bet for all you horror fans out there. But as for the director, it looks like he could head into another genre for his next movie.
"Everything else I’ve written is in a different genre," Aster told The Guardian recently. "I love musicals. I love romantic comedies. I would love to do animation."
Maybe it's for the best... I'm not sure if I could survive another one of these...
