In a world suffering an outbreak of a deadly and highly contagious virus, Dr Martin Lowery (Joel Fry) leaves isolation to join a research hub based next to an expansive forest. When he arrives he is buddied up with park ranger Alma (Ellora Torchia) to embark on what should be a two day routine equipment run. As they journey deep into the forest they sense something sinister is lurking.

Conceived and made during the UK lockdown, In The Earth is a fun return to Wheatley's low budget, creepy countryside roots. Deeply atmospheric, with a wonderfully unsettling score from Clint Mansell, this is a violent and transcendent big screen trip you don't want to miss…
