As the man behind A24‘s highest grossing indie film to date, Ari Aster returns this summer with a new disturbing horror flick titled MIDSOMMAR.

Set to rival his debut masterpiece Hereditary, MIDSOMMAR centers around a young American couple who travel to rural Sweden to join a once-in-a-lifetime festival. Although everything seems fine and dandy at first, the couple soon realizes something sinister is going on as the local villagers begin to partake in cult-like rituals and ceremonies; even the murals depict the evil nature of festivities. Written and directed by Aster himself, he brilliantly manages to turn sun light-filled imagery into a total nightmare.

MIDSOMMAR stars Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, William Jackson Harper, and Will Poulter and lands in theaters July 3.

In related news, Aster’s Hereditary made our list of the “Top 10 Movies of 2018.”
