A couple travels to Sweden to visit a rural hometown's fabled mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.
When her mentally ill mother passes away, a woman named Annie (Toni Collette) and her husband (Gabriel Byrne), son (Alex Wolff) and daughter (Milly Shapiro) all mourn her loss. The family turn to different means to handle their grief, including Annie and her daughter both flirting with the supernatural. They each begin to have disturbing, otherworldly experiences linked to the sinister secrets and emotional trauma that have been passed through the generations of their family.
Ari Aster wanted to go for scares that were emotionally justified, rather than solely leaning on traditional horror "jump scares." See more »
(at around 47 mins) When Joan writes down her phone number, she folds the piece of paper before giving it to Annie. Later, when Annie looks at this paper in her workshop, there is no crease, indicating that the paper was never folded. See more »
If you want to sleep tonight don't watch this movie
So I probably should not have watched this movie cause I'm 14 but I mean gotta love horror movies right .... It was definitely a good horror movie maybe the best I've seen but if you're scared fast I wouldn't recommend it . The movie has a lot of blood and dead boddies . If you do love horror movies this is a must see . 8/10
