It's the last day of school. Christian (19) and his younger sister Sofie are on their way to a party together with their friends. They've got to finish studying for their finals, take the tests themselves, and then school's out for good. The party has come just at the right time, and is just what Christian needs; right up until the point his sister commits suicide in an upstairs bathroom. Exams and graduation completed, Sofie's unexplained suicide is still affecting everyone concerned, especially Christian, who is convinced that Sofie was trying to tell him something before she killed herself at the party. But life has to go on, and before they all have to split up and go their own way Christian and his friends decide to go on their traditional trip to Sweden to celebrate midsummer for one last time. Although the group's usual rituals in connection with the midsummer trip aren't the same without Sofie, everyone does their best to enjoy themselves. And when Christian's long held, yet ...

I have just come back from the cinema, where there was a first premiere on Midsommer.
Before the movie I thought that this would be one of the bad teenage horror movies. The trailer gave me the impression that I would expect something like a Friday 13th without the splatter effects. That wasn't what I got.
There was a lot of scary effects, and they worked very well. Thumbs up for the sound editing, as you could hear they had been working a lot on it. The plot was kinda straight forward from what you would expect in a teen horror. In the first scene one of the kids kills herself, and over the movie you try to figure out why.
Where the movie lagged was specially in the ending. It seems that they tried to copy Scream too much in a way. Through the film there haven't been any action scenes, but in the end it all goes too much action, and the plot reveals itself too fast. Also, some of the young actors could have had more experience, but they had chosen a nice lead with Kristian Leth and also Tuva Novotny who plays the mysterious Swede are doing a great job.
All in all not a movie you would remember in some years, but very much entertaining. Should be seen in the cinema, so you don't lose too much of the sound quality and loudness.
