Ari Aster’s second feature, Midsommar was instantly acclaimed for its stunning beauty, relatable themes, and unforgettable ending. We’re in Sweden to talk a modern folk horror.
The second horror film to come from writer/director Ari Aster working with A24 after Hereditary (2018), Midsommar is a breakup movie and folk horror set in the backdrop of a rural Swedish cult. Taking inspiration from real life Norse mythology and Scandinavian folklore, as well as classic horror staples such as The Shining (1980) and The Wicker Man (1973), Aster crafted a film already acclaimed as a cult classic.
