A young American couple, their relationship foundering, travel to a fabled Swedish midsummer festival where a seemingly pastoral paradise transforms into a sinister, dread-soaked nightmare as the locals reveal their terrifying agenda.

Reminiscent of the 1970's folk-horror classic, The Wicker Man, Midsommar dazzled and terrified audiences in equal measure and won Florence Pugh numerous awards for her incredible performance.

"A terrifically juicy, apocalyptic cinematic sacrament that dances around a fruitless relationship in dizzying circles." - Roger Ebert
