Tomatometer quote iconAmbitious, impressively crafted, and above all unsettling, Midsommar further proves writer-director Ari Aster is a horror auteur to be reckoned with.

Jeffrey M. Anderson quote iconUnsettling, high-class horror movie is extremely violent.

Jim Judy quote iconwhile there’s dread and some truly disturbing and horrifying moments, I didn’t find those or the film in general remotely scary or frightening and thus this “Midsommar” trip feels a bit like a wasted opportunity.
