Ben Wheatley‘s latest horror oddity is on the way, and here’s a disturbing trailer to give you just a tiny glimpse of the madness he has in store.

The film is set in the midst of a pandemic (sounds familiar) and finds two people venturing into the woods for scientific research. Of course, anyone who has ever seen a horror movie can tell you that nothing good ever happens in the woods. Watch the In the Earth trailer below. Read More »
