Duration: 96 mins
"★★★★ – a supremely disquieting study of solitude" – Guardian
"★★★★ – The kind of thing the victims in a horror film might watch, just after pulling it from the cellar of a derelict harbour cottage, and shortly before succumbing to some blood-curdling maritime curse" – Telegraph
Visionary Cornish-British director Mark Jenkin (Bait) returns with a chilling folk-horror set in 1973 on a remote island off the Cornish coast.
Mary Woodvine gives an astonishing performance as a wildlife volunteer, whose observations of a rare flower each day transform into absurdity, blurring the lines between reality and nightmare.
Shot on 16mm film and presented with Jenkin’s trademark post-synched sound, Enys Men is an exciting entry in the journal of new British horror.
