Can it be July already? I’m ready for some pagan madness…

As a massive fan of last year’s Hereditary, everyday is too long to wait for Aster’s next picture. With his debut feature gaining the respect of many (it also has it’s fair share of fans who hate it), Midsommar is apparently ready to become another classic of the genre. Speaking too early is often bad news, but the feeling of greatness upon us grows by the day. Summer is about to get deadlier than ever.

Midsommar stars Florence Pugh, Will Poulter and Jack Reynor. Ari Aster directs a screenplay by Aster. B-Reel Films and Parts and Labor produce, with A24 distributing. The pagan madness arrives July 3, only in theaters.

Next. May is scary, tragic buried treasure. dark
