Midsommar
Blu-ray | DVD | Digital
Director: Ari Aster
Writer: Ari Aster
Cast: Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, William Jackson Harper, Vilhelm Blomgren, Archie Madekwe, Ellora Torchia, Will Poulter
Distributor: Lionsgate Home Entertainment
Release Date: October 8, 2019

If there was a movie that could epitomize living through a great tragedy while being in a toxic relationship, it would have to be Ari Aster‘s ambitious film Midsommar. An unconventional horror to say the least, the film is a slow burn that scares you at just the right moments, and then hits you even harder when you least expect it. Though that slow burn pacing may backfire, there is more than enough from Aster’s deft hand direction and star Florence Pugh’s performance to grab the audience’s attention and never let go. My full Blu-ray review of Midsommar here below.

Midsommar
Director: Ari Aster
Writer: Ari Aster
Cast: Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, William Jackson Harper, Vilhelm Blomgren, Archie Madekwe, Ellora Torchia, Will Poulter
Distributor: A24
Rated R | Minutes: 147
Release Date: July 3, 2019

Hereditary writer and director Ari Aster‘s Midsommar reminds us that, even though his films are redefining the genre, they aren’t for everybody. For his sophomore effort, he creates a world that on the surface looks bright and colorful, but deep down, hides something that is bizarre, strange, and visceral.

It is certainly a stark contrast to what he offered in his directorial debut in terms of vision and tone, but one that can be imbalanced because of its use of black comedy and an uneven narrative. Still, it is one trip that isn’t conventional and scares audiences to their core with the use of shocking imagery and terrific pacing. Check out my review below.

Blu-ray Review: Hereditary
  |  @   |  

Hereditary
4K | Blu-ray | DVD
Written & Directed by Ari Aster
Starring Toni Collette, Milly Shapiro, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff
Lions Gate Home Entertainment
Release Date: September 4, 2018

Hereditary is written and directed by first-time feature-length filmmaker Ari Aster and is currently ranked as my second best film of 2018 and far and away my favorite horror film of the year, and maybe of the past decade. Since seeing it on opening night back in June, I’ve been haunted by it, waking up in the middle of the night and checking the corners of my ceiling. The movie was critically lauded, currently sitting at 89% on Rotten Tomatoes, but has divided film audiences. Produced by indie darlings, A24, the same company that gave us The Witch, It Comes At Night, and The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Hereditary is a complex horror film that deserves full attention and the utmost respect. One of the most talked about and debated films of 2018 is available in stores now as special Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital combo pack.
