    • Excerpt: …Ben Wheatley gets back to his literal roots with a trippy horror outing that suggests the psychedelia of of both “Mandy” and his own “A Field in England” with the urban legend of the Blair Witch and the folkloric horrors of “Midsommer.”

    • Excerpt: We find our own interpretations in a fluid state of metamorphosis much like the imagery on-screen courtesy of Wheatley’s hallucinogenic editing & Clint Mansell’s synth score.

    • Excerpt: Ben Wheatley’s return to horror uses the backdrop of a global pandemic to spin a folksy yarn about woodland killers and pagan worship that employs militant audio-visual hallucinogenic effects to entertain and disorient. A real return to form for Wheatley and the first movie to effectively tackle the virus and its effect on our collective sanity.

    • Excerpt: In the Earth’ isn’t entirely new ground for Ben Wheatley, but it taps into the zeitgeist and delivers its payload of cosmic/folk/body/WTF horror with spiffy efficiency.
