Atom User Reviews for Midsommar
Umm, crazy this is in mainstream theaters! Despite marketing, this is NOT a date movie. This is not a feel good dance around the maypole movie. This is one of the most troubling visual experiences ever. Uncomfortable. Powerful. Shocking. Graphic. Explicit. And you just cannot take your eyes off it. But in the end, you leave the theater feeling relieved you made it through but also disappointed in yourself for staying. Hands down one of the most unique films of all time. Acting was phenomenal which makes it even more disturbing. Think Wicker Man meets The Witch. You’ve been warned!
Worst movie i have ever seen in my life. Felt like stabbing my eyes with my straw. No one should be subjected to such garbage.
Really good visuals, and crazy plot. Gave me a Jordan Peele movie vibe, which is cool.
I wouldn’t given any stars if I was allowed. Worst film I’ve ever seen. Waste of my life.
Unsettling at its finest. If you are a fan of hereditary you’ll thoroughly enjoy this one as well.
My one star is for the fact that it finally ended! Please save your $$ and donate it to some mental health center...that’s where my $$ should’ve gone!
That's a no from me dog.
Didnt want it to end
Strange, yet familiar! Think Wicker Man, meets Hostel, meets Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery.”
This is the last time I'll see any written or directed by this man. I hated Hereditary as well
Worst movie ever! Pure waste of time in my life that I will never get back. I don't recommend.
Very slow burn with no payoff
Must see for the whole family!!
Haunting. Don’t let your fellow audience members ruin it for you.
This was a great film! You have to go in with an open mind, don't have any expectations. Throughout the film it was shocking and beautiful! If you're the type who can't sit through a 3 hour movie and has a singular idea of what horror can be, don't watch it.
That was... a lot. Oof.
I had now expectations for this movie going in , but it wasn't low enough it did make me want to scratch my eyes out and make them bleed, save your money watch anything else / it's creepy, it's weird but not in a good way.
not for kids too much nudity and 1 sex scene
Disappointingly dumb. Should have seen Stubber instead.
honestly incredible and clever. 10/10 amazing. I loved it. had me thinking the whole time. I would love to see it again. I will definitely buy it when it comes out
From the start this film hits you with some intense moments. There were parts that moved a bit slow, but you can’t expect a film to intense every minute. Acting and cinematography was phenomenal. Must see horror film!
Dumbest movie I ever seen in my life
very interesting and weird and confusing in the best way. very slow start. It's worth it to me especially if you want something original and something like you've never seen. it's not very predictable. it's definitely sinister lol. I would watch it again to try to gain more understand and possibly see if I missed anything. the visual on this is mind blowing and realistic in the most disturbing way lol
Second half dragged a bit. Could have done away with 30+ minutes of artistic imagery and made the film better. It lost me more and more as the film went on.
Still digesting. Movie had me nervous most of the time. I haven't felt uneasy during a film in a while.
it was a great movie. surprised to see it in theaters though. not a typical film seen there. independent vibe.
Heavy. Deliberate. Well crafted. Shocking but not out of place. So many words to describe yet still not capture this very in-your-face film that is a puzzle to unpack all the themes and meanings but inevitably fun to do so. DO NOT TAKE YOUNG CHILDREN OR IF YOU TAKE ISSUE WITH VIOLENCE AND OTHER IMPACTING THINGS ::do research on that stuff if you are taking the family, as with any movie:: Loved the editing and color use and cinematography. Great performances from all as well. Liked it
I liked it
very slow build horror movie in the greatest way
Weird for the sake of being weird isn’t good, it’s just weird.
don’t go see this unless you’re weird. it’s not even scary it’s just disturbing
Worst movie ever!!
The best way to describe this movie is “Get Out with a female protagonist and A LOT more scary white people.” Much better than Hereditary, in my opinion. (4/5)
Worst movie I’ve ever seen
I want my 2.5 hours back
an authentic sunny white nightmare!
Very bizarre film but I enjoyed it. Pacing was slow but the build up was worth it for me. Very graphic content in film.
expected more violence overall. Creepiness gets an A+ though.
Fun to look at but pointless otherwise.
Not sure what the heck was happening
I loved how weird the experience watching it felt.
it may attract certain audience
LOVED IT SO MUCH ❤️
Like Aster’s Hereditary, Midsommar is an operatic slow burn incorporating elements from several different movie genres. Bolstered by phenomenal acting, a beautiful setting, great music, and just the right amount of humor, this slightly too long film delivers a compelling, gruesome, highly unusual wallop. Rewarding, but not for the faint of heart.
Boring moving. Terribly dull. Worst of all not one single sympathetic character ...
Extremely disturbing !!! Not kids friendly. if you have mental issues DON'T WATCH IT! YOU'VE BEEN WARNED. One thing for sure, this ONE movie has been beyond crazy and sick! . I came out feeling guilty of watching it because is so sinister .
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.
