Here's Where You Can Watch Midsommar

Few genre filmmakers have ever made quite as big a splash with their debut movie as Ari Aster did with 2018's "Hereditary." Even as that unholy "family drama" left many a viewer's heads, ahem, firmly dislodged, Aster proved with his jaw-dropping follow-up that he was just getting warmed up. Warm was the order of the day for Aster's 2019 day-time horror masterpiece "Midsommar," which shocked even those who expected troves of physical and emotional gore galore after enduring the cinematic nightmare that was "Hereditary."

Aster's twisted tale of a relationship gone wrong in ways too brutal to imagine delivers heaping doses of both as Dani (Florence Pugh), Chrisian (Jack Reynor), and a handful of fellow travelers venture into the Swedish countryside in search of a legendary midsummer festival, only to find themselves ensnared in — well, to spoil that turn of events would be to take the proverbial piss out of the film altogether. Out of respect for those who've yet to venture into the wild's of Aster's gruesome "breakup movie," nothing more will be said of the many twists spotting the "Midsommar" narrative. If you're now desperate to see the carnage unfold for yourself, you can indeed do so in the streaming realm.  

Midsommar is currently creeping viewers out on Amazon Prime Video

Those looking to endure the summer vacation from hell with a screening of Ari Aster's "Midsommar" will be happy to know the film is now available through their Amazon Prime Video subscription. If you're still on the fence about the film, know it's not only one of the most disturbing films of the past decade, it's also an artistic triumph that fronts one of Florence Pugh's best performances. Yes, that's saying a lot for a young actor who's already earned an Academy Award nomination (for "Little Women") and played the part of scene-stealer in an MCU blockbuster ("Black Widow"). However, seeing is believing, and once you see Pugh's dexterous performance in the devastating "Midsommar" you'll no doubt believe it to be among the best ever committed to film — even if you're forced to watch some of it while frightfully peering through your fingers.

Fear not if you aren't currently subscribed to Amazon Prime Video, 'cause you've still got viable options to catch up with "Midsommar." The first of those options is to simply drop a few bucks and rent the film via Amazon, iTunes, or whatever VOD provider you prefer. If digital isn't your thing, you can also track down a physical copy of "Midsommar" on DVD or Blu-ray with relative ease. However you choose to see "Midsommar," see that you do, as it's a modern horror classic unlike anything you've watched.
