Ben’s new psychedelic pandemic thriller, In the Earth, filmed in just 15 days while most of us were quarantining, follows Dr. Martin Lowery (Joel Fry) and park ranger Alma (Ellora Torchia) as they hike deep into an arboreal forest to reach the ATU327A research hub. After a night-time attack in which they lose their shoes, the forest comes to life around them. A woodland hermit offers help—needless to say, we are in Wheatley territory now.

In the Earth is in US theaters now and coming to VOD soon. With thanks to our friends at NEON.
