Recently I watched Midsommar on Amazon Prime. I read comments following the YouTube trailer so I knew going into it that it would be weird, possibly disturbing, and it’s a horror movie. I even prayed to God that if this movie was going to harm me that I’d be compelled to turn it off!
I watched it over the course of two days, because that’s just what I do, starting it late one night and finishing it the next night. Sometimes I start a movie way too late and can’t stay awake. What can I say, I’m 41 yrs old!
So my expectations were high regarding it’s wow factor, it’s horror factor. I have to admit, there were some strange things going on, but it wasn’t quite as emotionally disruptive as I was expecting. It’s not so much that it’s a wild and crazy movie, but the story is pretty wild. What I enjoyed is that it didn’t get into a situation where everything was happening in someone’s mind, know what I mean? Like those movies or shows that end with the main character waking up and oh wow, it was all a dream! I hate those endings. So this was very much something that could really happen in real life, and I appreciated that.
There are a handful of scenes that are for adults only, not that kids would even want to watch this one haha. I’ll be reading an explanation of the movie after I post this but if you’re into movies that aren’t cookie-cutter, that don’t follow a formula, and if you like horror but not in the “everything happens at night” kind of way, you should give this movie a try! But like I said, there are a few scenes that are easily considered disturbing, so if you’re curious about those, do some research first to make sure you’re up for it.
Thanks for stopping by!
