Ex Machina and Annihilation visionary Alex Garland pivots from elegant sci-fi to horror drama with his third film as writer-director, Men.
Young Harper retreats for a solo vacation to the idyllic English countryside, looking to heal in the aftermath of a personal tragedy. Her interactions with the men in the nearby town are loaded with eerie projections from her memory. A haunting, shadowy presence also lurks in the surrounding woods, seemingly stalking her. Harper's steps into the dark green forest turn simmering dread into a feverish nightmare informed by her darkest fears.
Starring Jessie Buckley and Rory Kinnear, Men is a cryptic, tense, and pared-down affair from a burgeoning auteur known for his thought-provoking meditations.
