Recent from scoring her first, well-deserved Oscar nomination for The Misplaced Daughter, Jessie Buckley is again on our screens, this time wanting very haunted within the cryptic, creepy first teaser for Alex Garland’s new movie, Males.
Garland’s return to cinema (and to studio A24) after his TV time with Devs is shrouded in thriller, however there’s a little to find out about it.
Buckley performs Harper, a girl who heads on vacation to the English countryside as a part of her grieving course of following the dying of her ex-husband (Rory Kinnear). However somebody or one thing from the encircling woods seems to be stalking her. What begins as simmering dread turns into a fully-formed nightmare, inhabited by her darkest recollections and fears…
In true Garland model, he is cooked up some haunting imagery and a disturbing soundscape that will most likely have Ben Wheatley and John Carpenter smiling.
Males will probably be in US cinemas on 20 Might, however a UK date has but to be introduced.
