It’s no secret that Hereditary is one of the most buzzed about horror films of 2018. Word of mouth carrying a message of how deeply terrifying the movie has helped catapult it to being A24’s biggest box office success. Audience members walked away claiming to have experienced panic attacks from the movie, while actors have claimed to have post-traumatic stress disorder from the filming of Hereditary. With a reputation like that, it’s not surprising movie-going audiences were compelled to satisfy their morbid curiosity.

What’s also not surprising is that A24 is wasting no time in putting Hereditary director Ari Aster back to work on creating a new horror film. According to Bloody-Disgusting, Ari Aster will helm a new movie from A24, set for release in the summer of 2019. Neither an official release date nor a title has been provided for the upcoming movie, but what has been provided by Aster is what many horror fans feel is an intriguing premise.

“The story follows a young couple visiting an isolated Swedish village; over the course of their vacation, they discover that its residents participate in an eccentric set of seasonal traditions. The recent death of the main character’s parents casts a sense of dread over the proceedings.”

Aster also previously called it an “apocalyptic breakup movie,” which, at the time, was going under the working-title of Midsommer. That name is likely to change.
