Horror News: Ari Aster's Midsommar Will Get An Extended Cut

Much like his earlier release Hereditary, Ari Aster's new horror film Midsommar has been receiving mixed reviews. While some critics are hailing it as one of the best of the year, others are not quite as impressed by the daylight spectacle of his latest genre nightmare. Also, horror fans seem to be split down the middle while critiquing his newest project. Now, with the film currently in theaters, it looks like the movie will be extended beyond its two and a half hour run time. That's right. We just said it. 

When Midsommar comes to blu-ray and the streaming market, the film will receive  'at least' an extra thirty minutes of footage which will put it right around the three hour mark. This extended cut will let Aster place back much of the footage he cut to meet the demands of a theatrical release. 

In Midsommar, a couple embarks on a trip to Scandinavia with a crew of friends. What takes place is pure nightmare fuel, which all happens to take place in the sunlight, completely breaking away from horror standards. Although the film isn't doing great box office, it will end up much like his previous work. It will go down as a definite cult hit.
