MIDSOMMAR is a US horror thriller in which a couple travel to Sweden to visit a rural mid-summer festival organised by a pagan cult.

Disturbing images

There is a sequence in which a woman and man jump to their deaths from a clifftop, landing on rocks below. In the man's case the jump only breaks his legs and somebody has to smash his head with a mallet to kill him. In another scene, a man's body is seen suspended from a ceiling with his back flayed. Elsewhere in the film, dead bodies are presented in macabre rituals.

There is strong language ('f**k') throughout. There are also scenes in which people hallucinate after consuming 'magic mushrooms', and a scene in which a man and woman have sustained, thrusting intercourse while other women, naked, urge them on. There is also a murder suicide scene in which a young woman takes her own life and those of her parents by gassing their home.
