Christopher Webster [Celluloid 05.09.13] United Kingdom horror thriller



Drafthouse Films have snagged the North American rights to the next original horror film from Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Sightseers). Called A Field In England, the film is billed as a psychedelic trip into magic and madness.

Synopsis:
England: 1648 AD. 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 Reece Shearsmith ("The League Of Gentlemen"), Kill List's Michael Smiley and features Julian Barrett ("The Mighty Boosh") in a small role.

No trailer yet, but we do get a peek at the film's first provocative poster.

A theatrical and VOD release is planned for 2013.
