Horror movie fans will remember Ari Aster’s 2018 nightmare Hereditary. It was an incredible film with a trailer that scared the absolute hell out of us. Now, Aster is back for a follow-up film that is sure to leave us with even more nightmares. Check out the first trailer for Midsommar below!

Don’t let the bright lighting of this trailer fool you. Aster’s festival-based film looks like it will be every bit as scary as Hereditary. 

Starring Jack Reynor, Florence, Pugh, Will Poulter, and William Harper, Midsommar is set to follow a couple as they head to Sweden for a festival that takes place once every 90 years.

This already sounds sketchy AF.

It’s not long before their quick retreat devolves into violence at the hands of a pagan cult.

You can check out the film’s poster below.

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
