Midsommar

Midsommar

One of the best openings to any horror film in recent memory. Gut-wrenching, ruthlessly efficient, astoundingly controlled, and simply spine-chilling. Beautiful to look at and impossible to look away from. Multiple scenes throughout that gave me chills. Unlike anything I’ve ever seen. The journey may be a little rocky, but the ending makes it worth it and makes up for any of the shortcomings that preceded it. The allusions to The Wicker Man are inevitable, but Midsommar holds its own and has something unique to say. Just may be the most iconic film of its limited genre; even so, the brightest horror film to grace the silver screen. Skål!
