Director Ben Wheatley is once again bringing his own unique style of horror to the screen with In The Earth. Wheatley wrote and directed the film quickly during the summer of 2020 – a time when most of the world was still locked down due to COVID-19. It looks like this real world event influenced Wheatley to craft a horror/thriller which looks to be as timely as it is creepy.
In The Earth starring Joel Fry, Reece Shearsmith, Hayley Squires, Ellora Torchia, Mark Monero, John Hollingworth hits UK cinemas on 18 June 2021.
As the world searches for a cure to a disastrous virus, a scientist and park scout venture deep in 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.
