A couple travels to Scandinavia to visit a rural hometown's fabled Swedish mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.
Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) are a young American couple with a relationship on the brink of falling apart. But after a family tragedy keeps them together, a grieving Dani invites herself to join Christian and his friends on a trip to a once-in-a-lifetime midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. What begins as a carefree summer holiday in a land of eternal sunlight takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that render the pastoral paradise increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing.Written by
Despite the Swedish setting, the film was mostly shot in Hungary. See more »
Terri kills herself and her parents by carbon monoxide asphyxiation by running a rubber tube from the car exhaust into her mouth, and sealing all air passages into the house. However, modern cars have catalytic converters that remove virtually all carbon monoxide fumes; it would be impossible to kill oneself in this manner. Even with an old car engine, or if the catalytic converter had been removed, filling an entire house with enough carbon monoxide to cause death would be near impossible. See more »
I'm not sure how but the movie had me on edge the entire time. You have to enjoy cinematography to really enjoy this. I left the movie like I just came down from a high. The whole thing felt like a bad trip afterwards, I was pleased and not at the same time but I think that's how we're meant to feel. It's a good change from super hero movies and terribly made horror movies.
