USA/Sweden 2019

Hereditary director Ari Aster returns with a genre-splicing summer road-trip movie in which a young couple fall prey to a local pagan cult in Sweden.

The summer film centres around a vacationing couple in a small Swedish village. The trip starts out slightly idyllic as main character Dani, played by Florence Pugh, becomes acquainted with the town. But as her time lingers she becomes increasingly more suspicious of their neighbours as its cult-like tendencies become apparent.

Did You Know? The director described the film as "a Wizard of Oz for perverts."
