Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Sightseers, A Field in England, High-Rise, Rebecca, The Meg 2) secretly shot a horror movie during quarantine last year, In the Earth, which NEON will be bringing to theaters this coming Friday, April 16th.
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.”
In the film, “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.”
In this exclusive clip, things get ultra cringe-worthy when a man brings down an axe in an attempt to amputate an infected toe.
Take the trip, if you dare…
