Ben Wheatley’s Horror Movie ‘In the Earth’ Will Release in Theaters One Week Earlier

We only just posted our April 2021 horror release roundup this morning but it’s already in need of an update, as we’ve learned NEON has shifted the date for Ben Wheatley‘s In the Earth.

It’s good news, however, as In the Earth will now release in theaters on April 16th. That’s one week earlier than the previously planned release date of April 23rd.

Meagan Navarro wrote in her Sundance review for BD, “[Ben Wheatley] finds inspiration from nature, crafting a wild, hallucinogenic descent into abject terror, giving hints at a folk horror mythology and references to witchcraft.”

Here’s the latest plot crunch…

“As the world searches for a cure to a disastrous virus, a scientist and park scout venture deep into the forest for a routine equipment run. Through the night, their journey becomes a terrifying voyage through the heart of darkness, the forest coming to life around them.”

Joel Fry (Yesterday), Ellora Torchia (Midsommar), Hayley Squires (I, Daniel Blake), and Reece Shearsmith star. You can check out a brand new motion poster from NEON below.
