Exclusive: New In Fear Poster Arrives
If you go down to the woods today...

In Fear is one of those the-less-you-know-the-better films. In the spirit of preserving its deeper mysteries, let's just say that it's a film about a boy and a girl driving around the Irish countryside and bad things happen in it. Very bad things. Oh, and it's got a nifty new poster we're delighted to be sharing.


What else can be said without spoiling the ride? Well, despite its Irish setting, this taps into that Brit horror tradition of things going seriously pear-shaped out in the boondocks. Recent chillers like Eden Lake and Wake Wood and, of course, classics such as The Wicker Man and Straw Dogs have all taken a similar fish-out-water approach to scaring the wits out of their protagonists. That's where this one starts before it heads off in a very different direction.

The film's two leads, Agents Of SHIELD's Iain De Caestecker and Beautiful Creatures' Alice Englert, play an almost-but-not-quite-couple who are heading to a musical festival. Some shonky directions lead them off the beaten track in a profound and increasingly scarifying way. Darkness falls and not even De Caestecker's SHIELD skills can help when things start to go bump in the night.

See for yourself when In Fear gets its UK release on November 15.
