In Ari Aster’s new horror flick “Midsommar,” four American tourists go on a trip to a remote commune in Sweden to immerse themselves in a festival during the summer solstice. Shortly after they arrive, a paranoid Mark (Will Poulter once again providing comic relief) begins tripping on drugs he got from someone at the commune, noticing that the sun is still out at 9 p.m. He quickly learns he shouldn’t be panicking — yet — because the festival takes place during a “midnight sun,” a period of time when it’s light out almost exclusively, even at night.
Many iconic horror films have taken pride in setting their jump scares behind dark corners and damp basements, but there is also a subgenre of horror films going back to Steven Spielberg’s summer classic “Jaws” that puts their characters out in the beating sun.
Are you afraid of the dark? It doesn’t matter, because these movies below, including “Midsommar,” are proof that nightmares can thrive even during business hours.
