We can’t wait for the new film from the writer/director of last year’s horror breakout HEREDITARY, and now there’s a teaser trailer out to get us even more intrigued. Check it out after the jump, along with the poster.

Aster’s MIDSOMMAR sees release this summer from A24. Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, William Jackson Harper and Will Poulter star in the film, which follows a group of friends as they travel into the woods to take part in a festival that takes place once every 90 years, and proves to have a sinister purpose. We’re digging the WICKER MAN vibe of the teaser; look for more MIDSOMMAR coverage as it gets closer to release!
