‘Hereditary’ director says “‘Wizard Of Oz’ for perverts” sums up next film
Aster’s second film focuses on a pagan cult, and is probably going to ruin festival season for us after we watch it.
The short teaser-trailer for Midsommar shows striking visuals and macabre elements without giving many details about the plot. It follows a couple that goes to Sweden for a festival that only happens once every 90 years. However, the festival turns dark and violent at the hands of a cult.
However, when speaking with Vulture, Aster referred to the movie as a “Wizard Of Oz for perverts.”
“It’s a breakup movie, in the same way that Hereditary is a family tragedy,” Aster said. “It’s less overtly a horror movie, but it’s still working in that same space. ... But people shouldn’t go in expecting Hereditary.”
The A24 film stars Florence Pugh and Jack Reynor. It will premiere in theaters on August 9. You can check out the film's poster below.
