An unforgettable look at cathartic cleansing, “Midsommar” wraps its message in chilling folk horror and scenes that can’t be unseen.

On this episode of The Final Girl on 6th Ave, host Carolyn Smith-Hilmmer takes a deep dive into the shocking 2019 folk horror film from indie darling Ari Aster, Midsommar. A critical success, the haunting film focuses on a deteriorating relationship inspired by Aster’s own experience with a difficult breakup. Shot on location in Budapest, it helped establish Aster as a powerhouse in the world of genre filmmaking and placed a spotlight on the spectacular Florence Pugh. – Stephanie (Editor-in-Chief)
