In The Earth (2021, dir. Ben Wheatley)

A scientist travelling to a colleague engaged in a forest project encounters woodland weirdness. Pandemic-infused folk-ish lo-fi horror with strong ideas, visuals, fine performances, and some black comedy. Better on mood than story, though: Wheatley’s indulgence in trippy freakout in full effect here.

Here’s the trailer.

Free Fire (2016, dir. Ben Wheatley)

A weapons deal goes bad. A contrived but slick, funny, and thoroughly entertaining action/horror hybrid that makes no bones about its B-movie borrowings. Everyone involved is clearly having fun; Wheatley’s best film to date.
