A Field in England

A Field in England

Directed by Ben Wheatley

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 they slowly become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field. A FIELD IN ENGLAND is a psychedelic trip into magic and madness from Ben Wheatley – award-winning director of KILL LIST and SIGHTSEERS.

A group of English Civil War soldiers are captured by an alchemist and fall victim to violent and nightmarish forces.

Cast: Julian Barratt, Peter Ferdinando, Richard Glover, Reece Shearsmith, Michael Smiley

Amazing experience. There’s one especially interesting scene that I love to rewatch over and over again.

Definitely agree with jgarlick, but very glad I watched it. I hope it stays around on Shudder for a while so I can watch it again.

More of a surreal arthouse flick than a horror film, but a good one.

You'll probably enjoy this movie exactly as much as you expect to. Refreshing to see a drug trip depicted in black & white, and the villain was cool
