Milk created the VFX for filmmaker Ben Wheatley’s latest project In The Earth – a micro-budget horror film secretly shot during lockdown.

In the Earth premiered at Sundance film festival with UK and US release dates in summer 2021. It stars Joel Fry (Yesterday), Ellora Torchia (Midsommar), Hayley Squires (I, Daniel Blake), and Reece Shearsmith.

As the world searches for a cure to a disastrous virus, a scientist and park scout venture deep into the forest for a routine equipment run. Through the night, their journey becomes a terrifying voyage through the heart of darkness, the forest coming to life around them…

In the Earth is Milk’s fifth collaboration with Wheatley with previous projects including his remake of Daphne Du Maurier’s Rebecca for Netflix; dystopian thriller High Rise; action comedy Free Fire and the BBC’s Doctor Who – for which Milk won a BAFTA Television Craft Award.

Milk’s VFX Supervisor was Murray Barber.
