The American producer A24 released a new trailer for Midsommar – Evil Doesn’t Wait For Night in celebration of the American summer solstice.
In the video we see a little more of the Swedish traditions that the group of friends will participate in when making a vacation trip.
In the plot, Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) form a young American couple with a relationship about to fall apart. But after a family tragedy holds them together, grieving Dani invites herself to join Christian and his friends on a trip to a unique summer festival in a remote Swedish village.
What begins as a carefree summer vacation in a land of eternal light takes an ominous turn when the villagers invite the group to participate in festivities that make the pastoral paradise increasingly worrying and viscerally disturbing.
From the visionary mind of Ari Aster a cinematic fairy tale appears drenched in dread where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight.
Complete the cast William Jackson Harper (from the series The Good Place) and Will Poulter.
The first reactions of the film were very positive, check it out:
“It talks about the meaning of death, and whether it means anything. Deeply disturbing, but very funny? ” says Richard Lawson of Variety.
“I’m going to join my colleagues, and say that I loved Midsommar. Ari Aster knows how to use visceral emotions. (…) A legitimate horror film for me ” says Meagan Navarro of Bloody Disgusting.
David Ehrlich of Indie Wire claims “MIDSOMMAR will become a reference for Swedish solstice pagan rituals, as well as showers for Psychosis”.
And finally, Shannon McGrew from the site Nightmarish Conjurings says “PQP guys, Midsommar is a masterpiece”.
