Like an unearthed lost folk horror from the Cornish coastline, Mark Jenkin’s second film is an unholy creation to behold: frightening and engrossing in equal measure, this love letter to horror cinema will resonate deeply in your soul. In 1973, on an uninhabited island off the Cornish coast, a wildlife volunteer observes a rare flower daily, noting any changes. However, slowly she’ll become aware of other forces present on the island, thrusting her into a journey where the real and the imagined combine to emerge as one frightening truth.
Shot on 16MM with the best sound design of any film this year, ENYS MEN is the closest you can get to an immersive experience within cinema: a psychedelic, mind-altering supernatural story that will leave you changed. – Boston Underground Film Festival
“Enys Men is a midnight movie made from the bare, bleached bones of works from an era when that term meant something, and for contemporary audiences that may not get the references but understand the universal appeal of dread.” – David Fear, Rolling Stone
“An experimental whatsit of the weirdest order, dispensing a brand of folk horror that’s so ambiguous and dreamlike that it makes Ben Wheatley’s kindred ‘In the Earth’ look conventional by comparison.” – Nick Schager, The Daily Beast
