Midsommar Jordan Peele

If you’re still not hyped for Midsommar, Ari Aster‘s follow-up to Hereditary, maybe this will do the trick. In the new issue of Fangoria, filmmaker Jordan Peele interviews Aster about Midsommar, and has nothing but nice things to say. Very nice things. In fact, according to Peele, Aster has made a horror movie loaded with “the most atrociously disturbing imagery” he’s ever seen.

Midsommar plot

If you’re expecting the new Ari Aster film Midsommar to be anything like his previous horror movie Hereditary, you should check yourself. According to Aster, his latest tale of terror for A24 is plenty scary, but audiences shouldn’t head into the theater expecting Hereditary 2.0. Instead, Aster suggests the movie is akin to The Wizard of Oz for perverts. Who wouldn’t want to see that?

Midsommar trailer

Hereditary director Ari Aster is back with yet another tale of terror: Midsommar. The film follows a couple visiting a friend in Sweden during the traditional mid-summer festivities. The trip turns from idyllic to terrifying, though, when a pagan cult enters the scene. I always hate what that happens to me on vacation, too. Watch the Midsommar trailer below…if you dare.

midsommar teaser

Ari Aster, the filmmaker behind the terrifying Hereditary, is reuniting with A24 for one more fright flick. That film is called Midsommar, and A24 just released a tantalizing teaser. There’s no actual footage, but instead some animated art for the movie. And while the teaser doesn’t provide much in the way of plot, it does throw off some serious Wicker Man vibes, giving us a good hint of what type of story Aster is telling here. Check out the Midsommar teaser below.

Toni Collette Hereditary interview

Toni Collette was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in The Sixth Sense, and now she’s back in the horror genre with Hereditary, a film so scary it makes The Sixth Sense feel like an episode of Sesame Street. Hereditary is deeply disturbing, an unnerving, visceral piece of filmmaking that will freak you out and leave you profoundly shaken by the time it ends. Collette delivers an absolutely unreal performance in the film, playing a matriarch whose family becomes haunted when her character’s mother dies. She’s physical and raw and wounded and grieving and furious – it’s arguably the best work of her entire career.

You can read our full review of the film here, but I recently sat down with Collette at the film’s press junket in Beverly Hills to talk about whether this script intimidated her, what it was like working with first-time director Ari Aster, the scariest thing about this film for her, and more. Enjoy our full Toni Collette Hereditary interview below. Read More »
