Brimming with malevolence and bearing resemblance to his folk horror breakout Kill List, this forest-based psychedelic horror marks a return to form for British director Ben Wheatley, who utilises Clint Mansell’s menacing score, mesmerising cinematography and a talented cast of British actors (Ellora Torchia, Joel Fry, Hayley Squires) to potent effect.
