When it comes to director Ben Wheatley, you can count on some extreme trip fever-induced terror. This is exactly the case with TANK 432, a film that Wheatley is an executive producer on. This film premiered earlier at this year’s Fantasia Fest and boy is it a doozie.
This one, originally titled ‘Belly of the Bulldog,’ features a group of soliders who are left no choice but to take shelter in an abandoned tank. Over the course of the film, psychological terror takes center stage as the group begins to succumb to hallucinations and victims of sinister outside forces.
From executive producer Ben Wheatley (Kill List, High-Rise) comes a mind-bending plunge into hallucinatory terror. Under siege by a mysterious enemy in an apocalyptic, war-torn landscape, a band of mercenary soldiers, hooded hostages in tow, seek refuge inside an abandoned military tank. But their sanctuary soon reveals itself to be a steel-walled prison. As the group succumbs to claustrophobia, paranoia, and increasingly disturbing delusions, it becomes clear that the real threat may lie not outside, but within. The directorial debut from longtime Wheatley collaborator Nick Gillespie unfolds like a delirious, pulse-pounding puzzle.
Fans of Wheatley’s style are sure to dig this one when it drops on VOD platforms beginning Nov. 25.
