From the creators of Kill List and Sightseers comes the psychotic horror show A Field in England. The premise is simple: a couple of guys (and an alchemist!!) are in a field looking for treasure, when everything goes straight to hell. Watch the new trailer now.
Already praised by Martin Scorcese, the movie is loaded with mind games, but here's the brand new premise to help you sort out the madness:
During the Civil War in 17th-Century England, a small group of deserters flee from a raging battle through an overgrown field. They are captured by an alchemist (Michael Smiley), who 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 descends 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 movie just kind of drops the viewer right into the middle of all this insanity, and the audience is left to piece together and make sense of the the ancient dealings, while the actors lose their shit. Is it magic, is it science, is it purgatory? We don't know. But we do know that A Field in England will be in theaters and on VOD February 7th.
