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.”
See how people on Twitter have been reacting to the news surrounding the film.
