Open Up And Let The Devil In
During the Civil War in 17th-Century England, a small group of deserters flee 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.

It literally took me four viewings to watch this without falling asleep early on. While I love Ben Wheatley's other movies, this one was just not captivating at all.

I did not get this movie - at all. Maybe because I'm not British and have the required historic knowledge required? Well, doesn't matter. Even if there was a giant metaphor for it, it was bland and has too few trippy imagery for it to be interesting and be more than a bunch of men rambling in the fields.
