United Kingdom


Ben Wheatley (DOWN TERRACE, KILL LIST, SIGHTSEERS) returns with his most audacious film yet, a psychedelic period piece—involving witchcraft, skullduggery and magic mushrooms—set among a group of deserters from the English Civil War. Beautifully rendered in black and white, it's an inspired, unholy mashup of Kevin Brownlow's WINSTANLEY and the folk-historical British horror tradition of films like WITCHFINDER GENERAL and THE WICKER MAN. Special Prize of the Jury, 2013 Karlovy Vary Film Festival; Official Selection, 2013 Toronto Film Festival.
