- Ari Aster's visual references for his Scandinavian folk horror are Black Narcissus (1947), Hard to Be a God (2013), Macbeth (1971), and Tess (1979).
- The Americans react to the sun being up late at night. The sun doesn't set until after 10.30 PM in the area around midsummer, but the lack of long shadows reveals that the scene does not take place in the late evening at 61° North but rather around noon at 47° North (Hungary). The film appears to be filmed in Utah which is around 42 degree N - instead of Sweden (which is 61 degree N) that would explain this discrepancy.

great movie and plot! director's cut just felt slow but it's like 3 hours. so if you're not into that watch the final cut
If Hereditary was about being trapped, Midsommar is about the terror of being let loose, the giddy, sickening rush of freefall. You laugh at its audacity, or maybe just to keep from losing your own grip on reality. By the time it’s over, you can’t wait for night to fall.
More unsettling than frightening, it's still a trip worth taking.
Aster’s bold flourishes occasionally fall flat, but Florence Pugh holds the film together — especially when its plotting stumbles or its shocks grow predictable.
