One of the best genre films of the year, Midsommar (review) has now been released on home video, but the festivities are continuing with two new behind the scenes clips from the special features featuring Ari Aster, Jack Reynor, Florence Pugh, and Vilhelm Blomgren discussing their time filming this summer’s unsettling film!
The film stars Florence Pugh (upcoming Black Widow and Little Women) as a young woman who reluctantly joins her boyfriend on a summer trip to a remote Swedish village for a midsummer festival, which becomes more and more sinister as the days pass.
The Rotten Tomato Certified Fresh™ film also stars Jack Reynor (Kin, Free Fire, TV’s “Strange Angel”), William Jackson Harper (TV’s “The Good Place,” They Remain, TV’s “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan”), and Will Poulter (The Maze Runner, Detroit, The Revenant).
“After a family tragedy, a young American couple joins some friends at a midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. What begins as a carefree summer holiday takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that grow increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing. From the visionary mind of Ari Aster (Hereditary), comes this dread-soaked cinematic fairy tale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight.”
This folk horror film is executive produced by Philip Westgren (Hellboy), Fredrik Heinig (Thelma), and Ben Rimmer (Ibiza, TV’s “Mr Selfridge”).
