Here is how The IMDb describes this movie:

Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) are a young American couple with a relationship on the brink of falling apart.

But after a family tragedy keeps them together, Christian invites a grieving Dani to join him and his friends on a trip to a once-in-a-lifetime midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village.

What begins as a carefree summer holiday in the North European land of eternal sunlight takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that render the pastoral paradise increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing.

What is it about?

This is how The IMDb describes this movie:

When her mentally ill mother passes away, Annie (Toni Collette), her husband (Gabriel Byrne), son (Alex Wolff), and daughter (Milly Shapiro) all mourn her loss.

The family turn to different means to handle their grief, including Annie and her daughter both flirting with the supernatural.

They each begin to have disturbing, otherworldly experiences linked to the sinister secrets and emotional trauma that have been passed through the generations of their family.

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter’s family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry.

The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited.

Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.

The Strange Thing About The Johnsons is one of those strange films that you have to see yourself because trying to describe what it is about will reveal too many spoilers, and it is a bit hard to describe and it is better seen than described.

But this is how it is described on the IMDB (The Internet Movie Database) page for The Strange Thing About The Johnsons:

A dark domestic melodrama / satire about the ties that bind and the ties that really bind.
