"Midsommar" is a waking nightmare and I mean that in the best possible way. For over two hours you will be transported to a beautiful village in the middle of nowhere in a foreign land where the sun never seems to set and everyone is wearing ornate flower crowns and enchantingly embroidered frocks. So, Dani, a haunted shell of a human, becomes a permanent fixture at Christian's side, even going so far as to accompany the four guys on their bro trip to the Swedish commune where one of them was raised for a midsummer festival that happens every 90 years.Aster lures you in with relative normalcy, including often very funny dialogue and situational absurdity as the Americans try to fit in this world, but before you know it, it's too late to turn back and you're stuck patiently watching this floral paradise curdle into a pagan inferno.The journey is fascinating enough that it's worth the trip, and by that point you'll probably just be grateful that you're finally allowed to wake up.
