The world searches for a cure to a disastrous virus. A scientist and park scout venture deep in 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.
The film sports a 78% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes. The Critics Consensus reads: In the Earth’s bleak kaleidoscope of horror is a hallucinogenic meditation on the residual pandemic fears that haunt humanity.
Joel Fry stars along with Ellora Torchia, Hayley Squires, Reece Shearsmith, John Hollingworth, and Mark Monero. The film had its world premiere at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival in January. Neon will release it on April 30th.
