Drafthouse Films, the film distribution arm of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, announce the simultaneous theatrical and VOD release of writer/director Ben Wheatley’s original psychological horror film, A Field In England, on February 7, 2014. Director Martin Scorsese said A Field in England is”audacious and wildly brilliant – a stunning cinematic experience.” The story takes place during the Civil War in 17th-Century England and follows a small group of deserters fleeing from a raging battle through an overgrown field. They are captured by an alchemist (Michael Smiley), who forces the group to aid him in his search to find a hidden treasure that he believes is buried in the field. Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group quickly descend into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia, and, as it becomes clear that the treasure might be something other than gold, they slowly become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field.
