"An expert piece of daylit terror."

That was a quote about Ari Aster's film "Midsommar." I happened to be in Atlanta during the summer of 2019 and attending a theater to see another movie, which was sold out. My party decided to take a chance on seeing "Midsommar." I can only say that it was one of the most shocking films I have ever seen. Ari Aster also directed the film "Hereditary," which I have not seen and thus knew nothing of his work.

A blurb on this film states: "After a family tragedy, a young American couple joins some friends at a midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. What begins as a carefree summer holiday takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that grow increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing. From the visionary mind of Ari Aster comes this dread-soaked cinematic fairy tale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight."

Has anyone else seen this film, and what would be your comments? For me, in a word, it was disturbing.
