In the Earth
★ ★
As someone who has watched way too many Benn Wheatley movies, it didn't surprise me when I realized the filmmaker being limited by the pandemic makes the creative choice of writing a sequel to EVERY FILM HE'S EVER MADE. A metaphysical, folk horror, psychedelia with an elusive, ever-changing plot involving a small group of people engaged in an escalating struggle over the very idea of man's relationship with nature. Characters who both care for and graphically harm each other while the soundtrack throbs along, the lights strobe and the edits chop like a blender.

Kill List is a top 100

Not sure why I haven’t searched out his others… reading this thread brought back so many memories… glad I never met up with that Paul Phoenix guy
