A horror film taking place in Sweden for a special festival that happens every 90 years, Midsommar is definitely a spooky film that you want to be high for. There are a lot of moving parts in this movie so get ready to sit through the entire thing with your jaw wide open. The movie starts out with one of the main characters, Dani, experiencing a horrific tragedy of her sister killing herself and both parents in a carbon monoxide incident. From there, Dani’s relationship became strained with her boyfriend, Christian, who gets invited to Sweden to attend the special midsummer celebration. Initially not invited herself, Dani tags along and once they arrive with a few others the chaos ensues. There are a ton of drugs and mind blowing things going on that are elevated even more when high, so enjoy this for what it is and remember you are in the comfort of your couch and not in a crazy cult scenario!
A popular franchise since 1993, Leprechaun has had many remakes over the years so feel free to choose whichever fits your taste best. This type of scary movie has comedy mixed in as well so it would be nice to wind down to after a true horror film that has you scared to fall asleep. Leprechauns are pretty creepy though but a few bong rips should have you laughing uncontrollably and do the trick. Most of the Leprechaun films involve some scenario of the evil and sadistic Leprechaun wanting his gold back and wreaking havoc on the innocent. It is equal parts creepy as it is funny and is a great movie to have in the background while taking some dabs.
