“Everything seems to just keep us here.”
Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Sightseers, A Field in England, High-Rise, Rebecca, The Meg 2) shot a micro-budget horror movie during quarantine last year, titled In the Earth. NEON will be bringing Wheatley’s latest to theaters on April 23, and the official trailer has debuted today.
Meagan Navarro wrote in her Sundance review for BD, “[Ben Wheatley] finds inspiration from nature, crafting a wild, hallucinogenic descent into abject terror, giving hints at a folk horror mythology and references to witchcraft.”
Here’s the brand new plot crunch…
“As the world searches for a cure to a disastrous virus, a scientist and park scout venture deep into the forest for a routine equipment run. Through the night, their journey becomes a terrifying voyage through the heart of darkness, the forest coming to life around them.”
Joel Fry (Yesterday), Ellora Torchia (Midsommar), Hayley Squires (I, Daniel Blake), and Reece Shearsmith star. Take the trip, if you dare, by watching the official trailer below.
