Spoiler Alert: My favorite movie of 2019 was technically NOT a horror film. But, there were quite a few pleasant surprises on the horror front this year. And, there were some stinkers as well. Let’s get to those stinkers first, so you can disinfect before I get to the good stuff. Continue reading
**This Post Contains Spoilers**
Ah, Midsommar. Not quite my favorite horror movie of 2019 – but a damn fine effort and it definitely contained one or two ‘holy shit‘ moments, and made me never want to visit Sweden in the foreseeable future (although I do enjoy meatballs).
Since the movie is still relatively fresh, I don’t want to spoil too much. But the one scene that really made me say “Holy Shit!“, was when a geriatric man and woman leap off a cliff to go along with the commune customs regarding senicide (the abandonment to death, suicide, or killing of the elderly).
First, the woman goes and the outcome is….ummmmm….rough to watch. But director Ari Aster doesn’t stop there! Oh no siree, Bob! Next, the gentleman takes center stage on top of the cliff and….yeah….also pretty rough to watch. It takes a lot for me to wince at on-screen violence. Midsommar combined two winces into one scene. Bravo. Watch below, but if you haven’t seen it – you’ve been warned!
Sonofa…….why did I watch that again???? Anyway, go watch Midsommar if you haven’t already. Hail, Paemon! Wait, that’s the wrong movie.
