Every day for the month of October I am watching and reviewing a horror movie that I haven’t seen before. Here’s today’s:
A FIELD IN ENGLAND
Ben Wheatley, United Kingdom, 2013
A group of deserters during the English Civil War take shrooms and wonder around in circles in a field. That’s the whole movie – really.
I can’t stand the director’s, Ben Wheatley, movies (other than his most recent, HIGH-RISE). I have no idea why his movies are grouped in with the horror genre so frequently. This was just a pretentious art with more focus on looking pretty than any attempt at something resembling plot or substance.
If you are remotely interested in this just watch the trailer. You won’t get anything more out of the full film other than ninety wasted minutes.
