Midsommar – What Happened To Mark?

It's one of the big questions about the movie – what happened to Mark? So here goes…

Mark (Will Poulter, Dopesick) is Christian's friend who heads to the Midsommar festival with him, Josh (William Jackson Harper, The Good Place) and Dani.

As the festivities are in full swing, Mark unknowingly urinates on a sacred tree and is berated by one of the elders. Later he is lured away by one of the female commune members.

He is then murdered, and we know that because when Josh is dragged away it is by a man wearing Mark's skinned face. Though the murder happens off-screen in the wider release, it is shown in graphic detail in the Director's Cut.

It turns out that for the final ceremony, nine human sacrifices are required to purge the commune of evil. The first four victims, including Mark, are outsiders deliberately brought in by Pelle and Ingemar for that reason.
