Midsommar Movie First Reactions Are In — “F**ked Up,” “Disturbing,” “Delightful”

Director Ari Aster’s 2018 feature film debut Hereditary starring Toni Collette put the director on the map, and now he’s back with another spooky movie titled Midsommar. Reviews and reactions have started to appear for Midsommar ahead of its theatrical release, and appears Aster hasn’t suffered a sophomore slump but instead put together another excellent horror film.

Midsommar was screened at a premiere tonight, and reactions have poured in remarking that it’s a terrifying and unique film based on Aster’s own life and specifically was inspired by a break-up he went through. We’ve collected a series of Twitter reactions that you can see below.

Writer-director Jordan Peele, known for his own disturbing movies like Get Out and Us, saw a very early cut of Midsommar and remarked in the Fangoria magazine that it’s set to become the “most iconic pagan movie” ever.

Midsommar opens in theaters on July 3. It stars Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, Will Poulter, and William Jackson Harper.
