Fresh from TIFF, this very original experimental thriller blends history and horror. Set in 1648 England, a small group of deserters flees the battlefront. Soon they are captured by a mad man who forces them to aid in his search for a hidden treasure. After eating mushrooms picked from the field, they descend into a psychedelic nightmare of arguments, paranoia and terror. It becomes clear the treasure might be something other than gold. With its stark monochrome, tableaux-like still shots, slow motion, and one brain-sizzling strobe sequence, it's as unsettling as it is beautiful.
