“Kill List” and “Sightseers” director Ben Wheatley returns with the horror period film “A Field in England”. Check out the first promo pic above.
England during the Civil War.
A small group of deserters flee from a raging battle through an overgrown field. They are captured by two men: O’Neil and Cutler.
O’Neil (Michael Smiley), an alchemist, forces the group to aid him in his search to find a hidden treasure that he believes is buried in the field.
Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group quickly descend into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia, and, as it becomes clear that the treasure might be something other than gold, they slowly become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field.
The film stars Michael Smiley (“Kill List”), Peter Ferdinando (“Tony”), Reece Shearsmith (“The League of Gentlemen”), Julian Barratt (“The Mighty Boosh”), Richard Glover (“Sightseers”) and Ryan Pope (“Ideal”).
“A Field in England” will boast as the first UK film to be released in cinemas, on DVD, on Film4 and on VoD on the same day, which would be Friday July 5th. No word on a Stateside release date, but if it’s anything like Wheatley’s past films, you’re probably looking at VOD or DVD here.
