Wednesday, February 9, 2022 | News


It’s a down-to-Earth chiller from the director of EX MACHINA and ANNIHILATION.

A24 releases MEN to theaters May 20. Written and directed by Alex Garland, who also scripted 28 DAYS LATER, it stars Jessie Buckley, who just got an Academy Award nomination for THE LOST DAUGHTER, Rory Kinnear and Paapa Essiedu. The synopsis: “In the aftermath of a personal tragedy, Harper [Buckley] retreats alone to the beautiful English countryside, hoping to have found a place to heal. But someone or something from the surrounding woods appears to be stalking her. What begins as simmering dread becomes a fully-formed nightmare, inhabited by her darkest memories and fears in visionary filmmaker Alex Garland’s feverish, shape-shifting new horror film.”
