Midsommar Review: Road To Hell Film Reviews Episode 003

What’s To Review In Midsommar?

In the woods of Sweden there lives a commune of white-clad nature worshipers. They live in harmony with the land and with one another, wearing wreaths of flowers and singing songs to the earth. Having avoided the trappings of progress and materialism, the members of this small society enjoy lives of quiet peace and tranquility. Having long cast off all forms of division, they exist as one loving, unified family. It is, for all intents and purposes, Utopia.

When a group of American college students is brought by Pelle, a native of the commune, to see what it’s all about, they expect an educational and refreshing summer vacation. But (of course) things are not as they seem! Every Utopia comes with a cost, and this Utopia is no exception. Stranded in the commune during Midsommar – the height of summer when the sun does not set in the far north – the Americans are made to pay the price of living in “harmony” with Mother Nature.
