Check Out Our Trailer For Ben Wheatley’s A FIELD IN ENGLAND

Friends of mine know by now that Ben Wheatley's A Field In England is one of my favorite Drafthouse Films releases of 2014 – I just can't shut up about it. 

The film follows three men who, after deserting battle during the English Civil War in 1864, are forced to assist an alchemist in search of buried treasure. However, when they stumble upon the titular field (and a circle of mushrooms), they suddenly find themselves entrenched in a struggle with sorcery and supernatural forces. 

It's a powerful and challenging film, one with huge reverberations within Mr. Wheatley's filmography. At a Fantastic Fest Q&A, he explained that A Field In England serves as a sort of prequel within the universe of his other films, and one can certainly see the residual traces of the magic here popping up later, for example via the cultists in Kill List and the leylines in Sightseers.

io9 unveiled our brand new theatrical trailer for the film, which only scratches the tip of the mountain of madness in store for the audience: check it out and take a look at Jay Shaw's searing and psychedelic theatrical one sheet below!
