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.
