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.

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!

The film wasn’t bad I just had high expectations because of the first film (which had nothing to do with this film). It felt a bit dragged out/slow to make the film longer but the people saying it didn’t make sense probably haven’t watched Ari’s other films which don’t make sense at first but they do, there’s hidden meanings behind everything. To the parents saying it’s not for kids... it’s a Rated R film so that’s obvious. Definitely recommend watching it! (Would watch again)

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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

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.

Very original and unique with a lot of Gore for added shock value, but the story is very, very messy and lacks a clear plot and charter arcs. I think I would need to watch it again to fully understand it, but people who have seen it should know that isn't a good idea. Watch it with friends. I still liked it tho.

I really don't understand why this movie was made, and most of all...how it was only rated R, and how it EVEN made it to the movies...this is something that I have never seen before and directors should be ashamed of themselves ... this is pure garbage. I'm sorry I couldn't pick no stars but maybe within the next update you can have - ratings implemented? thanks

Not as weird as Hereditary. It’s a slow burn but pays off in the end. A great story of dependency issues and moving on from unsupportive relationships. Oh and it’s pretty disturbing.

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.

Many things are possible in Midsommar, but the surest is that there’s nothing else like it at the movies.
