Midsommar is a 2019 folk horror film written and directed by Ari Aster. The film follows dysfunctional couple Dani and Christian, played by Florence Pugh and Jack Reynor, as they travel to Sweden with a group of friends for a midsummer festival, only to find themselves in the clutches of a Scandinavian pagan cult. Supporting actors include William Jackson Harper, Vilhelm Blomgren, Ellora Torchia, Archie Madekwe, and Will Poulter.

A co-production between the United States and Sweden, the film was initially pitched to Aster as a straightforward slasher film set among Swedish cultists. While elements of the original concept remain in the final product, the plot of Aster's film centres around a deteriorating relationship, inspired by a difficult breakup which he himself experienced. The soundtrack, composed by British electronic musician Bobby Krlic, takes inspiration from Nordic folk music. The film was shot on location in Budapest in the summer and autumn of 2018.

Midsommar was theatrically released in the United States on July 3, 2019, by A24 and in Sweden on July 10, 2019, by Nordisk Film. The film grossed $47.9 million and received positive reviews from professional critics, with praise for Aster's direction and Pugh's performance in particular, although it polarized general audiences.
