Midsommar | Ratings & Reviews

"Even if Aster overreaches this time round, toiling towards a cathartic exit to a disintegrating relationship that doesn’t completely land, it’s still quite the journey getting there: hilariously off-kilter, visually striking, deliriously inspired in parts, and yes, stark-raving mad."


"Horror films should never outstay their welcome and if I had one reservation, it would concern the film's length, which becomes one pagan ceremony too many. Yet again, Aster can't quite nail an ending down and almost overcooks what is otherwise a superbly crafted film."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"Perhaps only slightly let down by a certain inevitability about the character's fates (it does rather slavishly follow some genre traditions potentially as old as the Harga's), Midsommar is nonetheless proof of the emotional and visceral power of a well-made horror movie."


"Midsommar is the horror movie to beat in 2019. Caution: contains distressing amounts of folk music."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"Midsommar presents a ruthless take on the rituals of processing grief and letting go, excavating the caverns of broken relationships and the nauseous truths of why we stay in them."


"More unsettling than frightening, it's still a trip worth taking."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Sometimes hypnotic, sometimes overcooked, always intriguing, "Midsommar" occasionally falls flat, but Florence Pugh holds the film together - especially when its plotting stumbles or its shocks grow predictable."

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"Midsommar will rock you back on your feet in it's opening moments and never let you get your bearings. You'll be shocked before the opening credits even roll. You'll squirm through every frame of Dani's descent into delirious nightmare."


"Once the real fireworks start to ignite, you realise how powerfully the film's themes resonate when they're given room to breathe. It's just a shame it takes so long to bring them into focus."


"Midsommar is a shocking piece of filmmaking-unnervingly competent even when the film yaws into silliness, even when it risks tedium."

Vanity FairVanity Fair

"A savage yet evolved slice of Swedish folk-horror, Ari Aster's hallucinatory follow-up to Hereditary proves him a horror director with no peer."
