Director Ari Aster's Hereditary was one of the scariest horror movies 2018, and its mix of dark family drama and wild supernatural thrills made it a critical and commercial success. Expectations are high for Aster's follow-up Midsommar, which releases in July. A seriously creepy new trailer has been released.
Unlike March's first teaser, which was more concerned with setting a spooky mood than revealing many plot details, this latest promo is heavier on story. Florence Pugh (Fighting with my Family) plays a troubled young woman who is invited to mysterious festival in Sweden by her estranged boyfriend. But things don't get any better when she gets there, as the festival is being run by some sort of weird cult who have scary plans for the American travellers. Check it out below.
Midsommar also stars Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction), William Jackson Harper (The Good Place), and Will Poulter (Black Mirror). It releases on July 3.
In a recent interview with Vulture, Aster explained how Midsommar differs from Hereditary. "It's a breakup movie, in the same way that Hereditary is a family tragedy," he said. “It's less overtly a horror movie, but it's still working in that same space. It's very macabre. But people shouldn't go in expecting Hereditary."
