“Thus.. so much for plot and all that.., the more so, because lately my "raison de la review" has focused on only two things -- the synchronous mirroring of my personal life in any particular film (doubtless of no interest to you whatsoever), and the inevitable Hollywood/NWO indoctrination/propaganda being spewed by it.. (the film, not my life.

“ I think this is truly the worst movie I've ever seen.
“ Had you paid attention you would have noticed several shots of the sky above Harga, in which definite chemtrails were present -- thereby (as good homeopathic propaganda will do).. merely, if only subliminally.. adding just another drop of lethargy to our midday tea.., until sooner or later what's achieved is a "new normal".

“ There is a very raw feel to it & an incredibly intense atmosphere that's gripping all the way through from the shocking beginning to the disturbing ending, Midsommar is a terrifying new modern Horror Thriller MASTERPIECE!!.
“The visuals ranged from borderline pretentious to out-of-the-box amazing.
“ Slow start, slow middle and slow end .
“I didn't expect a gigantic jump scares, which are pretty expected nowadays, I knew that it's gonna be mind-disturbing and unsettling, and it was, it freaked me out, but the issue with the movie is, that every unsettling, or scary -psychologically- was in broad daylight, and that's my biggest issue with the movie, that it failed to reach the same atmosphere as Hereditary did, yeah the movie was scary, but it was always in daylight, I understand why it was in broad daylight, but there was a couple of scenes in the night, and they could use more of that to build an even scarier tension, but unfortunately they didn't, and that dragged the movie down.

“If you would like to see something related to Scandinavian folklore/mythology, watch the Ritual, which is far more original and intriguing than Midsommar.

“Slow paced and creepy.
“ After this it gets annoying and predictable.
“ Don't waste your time like I did.
“ An hour and a half in and I was watching the clock, bored out of my mind by more unnecessary and gratuitous gore, hoping the whole thing would end soon.
