A questo punto, scompaiono anche Mark e Josh: il primo dopo essersi allontanato con una ragazza del posto, il secondo dopo aver tentato di fotografare il Rubirader, il libro sacro.
Le ragazze, dopo aver assunto sostanze allucinogene , devono ballare intorno a un palo ornato con dei fiori fino a quando, per la fatica o per la droga assunta, non cadranno tutte a terra.
La conclusione del rito prevede un pranzo per festeggiarla, al termine del quale la nuova Regina di Maggio esegue la rituale benedizione dei campi e del bestiame.
Dani viene fatta salire su una carrozza e portata nel luogo, in cui da tradizione, viene celebrato il rituale di benedizione. Maja giace nuda su un letto di fiori, circondata da altre donne del villaggio, anch'esse nude e intente a cantare versi propiziatori.
Nel frattempo, Dani fa ritorno al villaggio e nonostante le venga sconsigliato di vedere cosa sta succedendo all'interno del capanno, decide di spiare da un buco della serratura.
A questo punto, viene raggiunto dagli uomini del villaggio, che soffiandogli in faccia una polvere paralizzante gli impediscono qualsiasi tentativo di fuga.

May not be everyone's cup of tea, but if you can stomach the gore it's worth every minute of it's 2. Kevin M Super Reviewer. Dec 27, Ari Aster continues to showcase his bizarre yet deep storytelling with Midsommar.
While pacing may feel profoundly lengthy, visually the film grabs all sense and takes it into a psychedelic trip while also conveying some disturbing and unsettling images and performances that may require more than one viewing to truly bask in the message of this provoking film.
Eugene B Super Reviewer. Dec 10, This film is like a double IPA, some will find it disgusting and some will enjoy it because they are used to the genre.
It is certainly unique in that the entire film takes place in the daylight, but the story and sequences are too odd for me. Sanjay R Super Reviewer.
Oct 08, Midsommar might genuinely be my big disappointment for I'm not saying it's bad. But coming into this on the back of not only the crazy good Hereditary from last year, but also the gushing praise from the online horror community, I guess my expectations were a little high.
It doesn't make me feel good to say it, but honestly I'm glad I didn't see this in the cinema. Gimly M Super Reviewer.

It is possible that the Christian Church may have adapted a pre-Christian festival celebrating the solstice into a Christian holiday.
In Austria the midsummer solstice is celebrated each year with a spectacular procession of ships down the Danube River as it flows through the wine-growing Wachau Valley just north of Vienna.
Up to 30 ships sail down the river in line as fireworks erupt from the banks and hill tops while bonfires blaze and the vineyards are lit up.

On the same day, the Eastern Orthodox church celebrates the day of John the Baptist and the rites and traditions of both holidays are often mixed.
A fire-related ritual may also be performed in Bulgaria on that day; it involves barefoot dance on smoldering embers and is called Nestinarstvo.
Anyone seeing the sunrise will be healthy throughout the year. It is believed that on Enyovden a variety of herbs have the greatest healing power, and that this is especially true at sunrise.

The herbs gathered for the winter must be 77 and a half — for all diseases and for the nameless disease. In Newfoundland and Labrador , St. John's Day is observed on the Monday nearest June 24 and commemorates John Cabot 's discovery of Newfoundland in Great fires were lit at night.

In , June 24 became a legal holiday in Quebec and in , it became the secular National Holiday of Quebec. It still is the tradition to light great fires on the night of the 24th of June.
The tradition of Sveti Ivan Krstitelj St. The people light large bonfires in the name of Saint John Baptist, and the celebration can also be connected to the old Slavic traditions for Kresnik South Slavic version of Perun the god of Sun.

In Denmark , the solstitial celebration is called sankthans or sankthansaften "St. John's Eve". It was an official holiday until , and in accordance with the Danish tradition of celebrating a holiday on the evening before the actual day, it takes place on the evening of 23 June.
It is the day where the medieval wise men and women the doctors of that time would gather special herbs that they needed for the rest of the year to cure people.

Jaanipäev "Jaan's Day" or "St. John's Day" in English was celebrated long before the arrival of Christianity in Estonia , although the day was given its name by the crusaders.
The day is still known by its many names as: leedopäev , suvine pööripäiv , suvepööripäev , püäripääv , päevakäänak , päiväkäänäk , päiväkäändjäne , päevapesa , pesapäev and suured päevad.
The arrival of Christianity, however, did not end pagan beliefs and fertility rituals surrounding this holiday.
In , Balthasar Russow wrote in his Livonian Chronicle about Estonians who placed more importance on the festival than going to church.
He complained about those who went to church, but did not enter, and instead spent their time lighting bonfires, drinking, dancing, singing and following pagan rituals.
Midsummer marks a change in the farming year, specifically the break between the completion of spring sowing and the hard work of summer hay-making.
Understandably, some of the rituals of Jaanipäev have very strong roots. One of the best-known midsummer ritual is the lighting of the bonfire and jumping over it Eastern Estonian tradition.
This is seen as a way of guaranteeing prosperity and avoiding bad luck. Likewise, to not light the fire is to invite the destruction of your house by fire.
The fire also frightened away mischievous spirits who avoided it at all costs, thus ensuring a good harvest.
So, the bigger the fire, the further the mischievous spirits stayed away. Estonian midsummer traditions are most similar to Finnish midsummer traditions but also have some similarities with Latvian, Lithuanian and Scandinavian traditions.
Estonians celebrate Jaaniõhtu on the eve of the Summer Solstice June 23 with bonfires. On the islands of Saaremaa and Hiiumaa , old fishing boats may be burned in the large pyres set ablaze.
On Jaaniõhtu , Estonians all around the country will gather with their families, or at larger events to celebrate this important day with singing and dancing, as Estonians have done for centuries.
The celebrations that accompany Jaaniõhtu carry on usually through the night, they are the largest and most important of the year, and the traditions are almost identical to Finland read under Finland and similar to neighbors Latvia, Lithuania and Sweden read under Sweden.
Jaanipäev is usually spent in a summer cottage, where people light bonfires, or at a festival, such as Pühajärve Jaanituli in Otepää.
Since , June 23 is also national Victory Day of Estonia and both 23rd and 24th are holidays and flag days.
The Estonian flag is not lowered in the night between these two days. On the Faroe Islands , St. Only one bonfire is lit on the island as one of the two biggest towns hosts the celebration alternately every other year.
The summer solstice was called Ukon juhla "Ukko's celebration" after the Finnish god Ukko. After the celebrations were Christianized , the holiday became known as juhannus after John the Baptist Finnish: Johannes Kastaja.
Since , the holiday has always been on a Saturday between June 20 and June Earlier it was always on June Many of the celebrations of midsummer take place on Friday, midsummer eve, when many workplaces are closed and shops may close their doors at noon.
In the Finnish midsummer celebration, bonfires Finnish kokko are very common and are burned at lakesides and by the sea. In folk magic , midsummer was a very potent night and the time for many small rituals, mostly for young maidens seeking suitors and fertility.
Will-o'-the-wisps were believed to appear at midsummer night, particularly to finders of the mythical " fern in bloom " and possessors of the "fern seed", marking a treasure.
In the old days, maidens would use special charms and bend over a well, naked, in order to see their future husband's reflection. In another tradition that continues still today, an unmarried woman collects seven different flowers and places them under her pillow to dream of her future husband.
An important feature of the midsummer in Finland is the white night and the midnight sun. Because of Finland's location around the Arctic Circle the nights near the midsummer day are short with twilight even at midnight or non-existent.
This gives a great contrast to the darkness of the winter time. Many Finns leave the cities for Midsummer and spend time in the countryside.
Nowadays many spend at least a few days there, and some Finns take their whole vacation at a summer cottage. Traditions include bonfires, cookouts, sauna and spending time together with friends or family.
Heavy drinking is also associated with the Finnish midsummer. Many music festivals of all sizes are organized on the Midsummer weekend.
It is also common to start summer vacation on Midsummer day. For many families Midsummer is the time when they move to the countryside to their summer cottage by the sea or lake.
Midsummer is also a Finnish Flag Day : the national flag is hoisted at 6 pm on Midsummer's Eve and flown throughout the night until 9 pm the next evening.
This is an exception to the normal rule of flying the flag from 8 am to sunset. It takes place on June 24, on Midsummer day St John's day.
In certain French towns, a tall bonfire is built by the inhabitants in order to be lit on St John's Day. In the Vosges region and in the Southern part of Meurthe-et-Moselle , this huge bonfire is named chavande.
The day of sun solstice is called Sommersonnenwende in German. On June 20, the Nuremberg town council issued the following order: "Where experience herefore have shown, that after the old heathen use, on John's day in every year, in the country, as well in towns as villages, money and wood have been gathered by young folk, and there upon the so-called sonnenwendt or zimmet fire kindled, and thereat winebibbing, dancing about the said fire, leaping over the same, with burning of sundry herbs and flowers, and setting of brands from the said fire in the fields, and in many other ways all manner of superstitious work carried on — Therefore the Hon.
Council of Nürnberg town neither can nor ought to forbear to do away with all such unbecoming superstition, paganism, and peril of fire on this coming day of St.
Bonfires are still a custom in many areas of Germany. People gather to watch the bonfire and celebrate solstice.
The date also marks the end of harvest for spring vegetables such as asparagus "Spargelsilvester"  or for rhubarb. According to Eastern Orthodox tradition the eve of the day of the Nativity of John the Baptist is celebrated with festivals in many towns and villages, both in the mainland and in the Greek isles.

Although the Arab historian Ibn Rusta speaks of the Hungarians' fire worshipping, so far there is no data that could connect it to this day.
In the Middle Ages it was primarily an ecclesiastical festivity, but from the 16th century on the sources recall it as a folk custom.
The most important episode of the custom is the lighting of the fire. The custom survived longest and in the most complete form in the northwestern part of the linguistic region, where as late as the s they still lit a Midsummer Night fire.
The way of arranging the participants by age and by sex has suggested the possibility that these groups sang by answering each other, but there are hardly any remnants that appear to support this possibility.
People jumped over the fire after they lit it. This practice is mentioned as early as the 16th century, although at that time in connection with a wedding; still, it is called "Midsummer Night fire".
The purpose of jumping over the fire is partly to purify, partly because they believed that those whose jump was very successful would get married during the following carnival.
In India, within the context of Hinduism , the Summer Solstice, or Midsummer's day, takes place on the 21st of June and is known as the Uttarayana.
It is a day denoted with celebration, observation, and practice of Yoga. Lighting the fire, thanking God for his blessings and crops, and praying for the peace of the souls of the dead were parts of this ancient Iranian tradition.

Many towns and cities have 'Midsummer Carnivals' with fairs , concerts and fireworks either on or on the weekend nearest to Midsummer.
In rural spots throughout the west, northwest, southwest and Co. Cork, bonfires are lit on hilltops on St John's Eve. This tradition harks back to pagan times.
The Irish Environmental Protection Agency , after much initial upset in the west of Ireland, has an exemption for the burning of fires outdoors during midsummer night.
The feast of Saint John the Baptist has been celebrated in Florence from medieval times, and certainly in the Renaissance, with festivals sometimes lasting three days from 21 to 24 June.
Such celebrations are held nowadays in Cesena from June 21 to 24, also with a special street market. Saint John the Baptist is the patron saint of Genoa , Florence and Turin where a fireworks display take place during the celebration on the river.
In Turin Saint John's cult was also diffused since medieval times when the city stops to work for two days and people from the surrounding areas come to dance around the bonfire in the central square.
Italian neopagans usually celebrate Midsummer with rites, dances and festivals all around the country.
In Jersey most of the former midsummer customs are largely ignored nowadays. It is a national holiday celebrated from the night of June 23 through June 24 on a large scale by almost everyone in Latvia and by people of Latvian origin abroad.
There are tens and hundreds of different beliefs and traditions all over Latvia on what should be done on that day for good harvest, for predicting the future, for attracting your future spouse etc.
People decorate their houses and lands with birch or sometimes oak branches and flowers as well as leaves, especially fern. In rural areas livestock is also decorated.
In modern days small oak branches with leaves are attached to the cars in Latvia during the festivity. The event has taken place since Runners are rewarded with beer, and police are on hand in case any "puritans" attempt to interfere with the naked run.
John's Day. It is celebrated in the night from 23 June to 24 June and on 24 June. The traditions include singing songs and dancing until the sun sets, telling tales, searching to find the magic fern blossom at midnight, jumping over bonfires, greeting the rising midsummer sun and washing the face with a morning dew, young girls float flower wreaths on the water of river or lake.

The day is also called Jonsok , which means "John's wake", important in Roman Catholic times with pilgrimages to churches and holy springs.
Today, however, Sankthansaften is largely regarded as a secular or even pre-Christian event. In most places, the main event is the burning of a large bonfire.
In Western Norway , a custom of arranging mock weddings, both between adults and between children, is still kept alive.
Such weddings are known to have taken place in the s, but the custom is believed to be older. It is also said that, if a girl puts flowers under her pillow that night, she will dream of her future husband.
Especially in northern Poland — the Eastern Pomeranian and Kashubian regions — midsummer is celebrated on June 21st or 22nd. Girls throw wreaths made of flowers and candles into the Baltic Sea , and into lakes or rivers.
John's Night. In many parts of Poland the Summer solstice is celebrated as Kupala Night. Also, an important tradition is looking in the forest for the flower of the fern as fern does not flower, this means something impossible to find without an interference of magic.

The streets are decorated with balloons and arches made out of brightly colored paper; people dance in the city's small squares, and altars, dedicated to the saints, are put up as a way of asking for good fortune.
In Lisbon , in Avenida da Liberdade, there are the Marchas , a parade of folklore and costumes of the inhabitants from the city's different traditional quarters, with hundreds of singers and dancers and a vast audience applauding their favorite participants.
As St. Anthony is the matchmaker saint, it is still the tradition in Lisbon to celebrate multiple marriages to and still following the tradition, if you are attracted to someone, one can declare themself in the heat of the festivities by offering to the loved person a manjerico a flower-pot with a sweet basil plant and a love poem.
In Porto and Braga St. John's is a festival that is lived to the full in the streets, where anything is permitted. People carry a plant of flowering leek alho-porro, which has a pungent smell with them, and run it over the face of other people.
John was a scalliwag in his youth and the people hit him on the head with the garlic saying "return to the right path".
There is also dancing, while the highlight of the night is the firework display over the River Douro in Porto and down Avenida da Liberdade in Braga.
Across the country the traditional midsummer bonfire is also built, and following an ancient pagan tradition, revelers try to jump over the bonfire, this in order to gain protection during the rest of the year.
John's day, but most festivities were changed to Saint Peter's Day in the s, as the day was declared a municipal holiday.
Women are dressed as tricana women dressed in a traditional costume with a sensual walking style. Each neighborhood has its own festival and colors for identification.
In the 21st century, younger population although participating strongly in this festival, now use contemporary ways to celebrate it, such as the very popular Saint Peter raves in the waterfront.
She is dressed as a bride , with wheat wreath, while the other girls, dressed in white wear a veil with bedstraw flowers.
Midsummer fairs are held in many Romanian villages and cities. There are many superstitions related to this day, particularly those involving marriage or death.
Many rites of this holiday are connected with water, fertility and autopurification. The girls, for example, would float their flower garlands on the water of rivers and tell their fortunes from their movement.
Lads and girls would jump over the flames of bonfires. Nude bathing is likewise practiced. The Yakut people of the Sakha Republic celebrate a solstitial ceremony, Ysyakh , involving tethering a horse to a pole and circle dancing around it.
Betting on Reindeer or horse racing would often take place afterward. The traditions are derived from Tengriism , the ancient sun religion of the region which has since been driven out by the Russian empire , Russian Orthodox Church and finally the Communist Party.
The traditions have since been encouraged. Ivanjdan is celebrated on July 7, according to the Serbian Orthodox Church. Saint John Sveti Jovan is known by the name Igritelj dancer because it is thought the sun is dancing on this day.
Among traditions are that girls watch the sunrise through their wreath , to become red as the sun, towards the evening in the heights, Ivanjske vatre kresovi, bonfire are lit, and dancing and singing takes place.
It is a tradition for people to become godfathers and blood brothers on this day, as John is a symbol of character and rectitude.
John the Baptist. It is common in many areas of the country. In some areas, bonfires are traditionally named tequeos , which means people of the dance.
Parties are organized usually at beaches, where bonfires are lit and a set of firework displays usually take place.
On the Mediterranean coast, especially in Catalonia and Valencia , special foods such as coca de Sant Joan are also served on this occasion.
In Alicante , since , the bonfires of Saint John were developed into elaborate constructions inspired by the Falles , or Fallas, of Valencia. Midsummer tradition is also especially strong in northern areas of the country, such as Galicia , Asturias , Cantabria and the Basque Country , where one can easily identify the rituals that reveal the pagan beliefs widespread throughout Europe in Neolithic times.
