Full Trailer for Ben Wheatley's Latest Eco-Horror Trip 'In the Earth'
"There's no reception in there… People get a bit funny in the woods sometimes." Neon has debuted the full-length official trailer for Ben Wheatley's latest unsettling horror film In the Earth, which just premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. This is Wheatley new hallucinogenic eco-horror that he secretly shot during the pandemic summer last year in the woods in the UK. 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. But their journey becomes a terrifying voyage through the "heart of darkness", the forest coming to life around them. The film stars Joel Fry, Ellora Torchia, Hayley Squires, as well as BAFTA Award Winner Reece Shearsmith. The freaky new film is a commentary not only on isolation and the pandemic, but on mother nature itself and the way it subtly controls us. This is a really beautiful trailer for Wheatley's latest creation.
