Ari Aster returns, having burst onto the horror scene with his acclaimed debut feature Hereditary.
Dani (Pugh) and Mark (Reynor) travel with friends to rural Sweden to attend a fabled mid-summer festival that happens only every 90 years. Enjoying the scenery and serenity the group are amused by the eccentric traditions of the villagers, but soon they’re forced to join in with increasingly violent and disturbing pagan rituals.
A terrifying, exceptionally well-made folk-horror film, best watched through your fingers.
Dir: Ari Aster
