Bait director Mark Jenkin‘s next is the Cornish-set horror film Enys Men, which was just acquired by NEON ahead of the pic’s world premiere in the Directors’ Fortnight section, reports Deadline.

NEON picked up North American rights to the film that’s set in 1973 on an uninhabited island off the British coast where a wildlife volunteer descends into a terrifying metaphysical and ecosophical journey that challenges her grip on reality and pushes her into a living nightmare.

Early synopses revealed that Enys Men actually revolves around a woman on an island with only an ancient standing stone for company, haunted by echoes of both the past and the future.

Mary Woodvine and Edward Rowe star.

“Enys Men was shot on 16mm color negative using a 1970’s clockwork Bolex camera and post sync sound. This was to achieve the feeling of discovering a reel of never-before-seen celluloid unspooling in a desolate, haunted movie palace.”

Two images have been released thus far.
