Prepare to be creeped out all over again by the man behind one of last year's huge horror hits. Hereditary writer/director Ari Aster is back with his unsettling new movie, Midsommar — and as anyone who saw his last movie will know, this flick is certain to put everyone on edge.

Story-wise, the film follows Dani (Florence Pugh) and her boyfriend Christian (Jack Reynor). Their relationship isn't so stable, but tragedy keeps them together. Then she follows him to a once-in-a-lifetime midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village; however this isn't just a carefree summer holiday in a close-knit community. Instead, it's a nightmare in daylight.

Expect a whole heap of people wearing white, nothing proving quite what it seems, and The Good Place's William Jackson Harper and Black Mirror: Bandersnatch's Will Poulter also among the cast. Expect idyllic natural surroundings and flower crowns — as corrupted by chilling rituals and unnerving antics — as well.

While plenty about the film is still being kept a mystery, a new trailer has dropped, following on from the first teaser earlier this year. Remember, if you're expecting another visibly dark and sinister flick from Aster, think again. Instead, Midsommar is light, bright and filled with bohemian-looking folks — even when it steps firmly into creepy cult territory

Check out the latest trailer below:

Midsommar opens in Australian cinemas on August 8.
