Mark Jenkin is making a new horror film in Cornwall by the name of Enys Men – more details on it right here.
After the terrific success of his last film, Bait (pictured), writer/director Mark Jenkin is back making a movie in Cornwall, this time one described as an ‘ecosophical horror’.
The new film goes by the name of Enys Men, which means ‘stone island’ in the Cornish language. It tells the story of a woman who lives alone on a Cornish island from winder through to spring as a volunteer observing a flower that only grows in this one place. But, just to make sleep nice and easy, the remote location also has, for instance, a bronze age standing stone that might just be edging closer to the cottage where she’s stopping.
Mary Woodvine, Ed Rowe, Flo Crowe and John Woodvine are in the ensemble for the film, a horror set in 1973. As Jenkin says in the official announcement of the film, “in Enys Men we explore the horror of human intervention in the natural world and how very little things can knock everything out of balance”.
The movie was originally set to start filming in spring 2020, but worldwide events had an impact there. No word yet on a release date, but we’ll be keeping you posted.
