This is a beautifully filmed black and white, British historical psychological horror flick.  I loved this one.  Its from that time period of say Witchfinder General.  The story is that of a bunch of cowardly deserters who flee a battle in the English Civil War.  These fools end up roaming the county side together looking for a buried treasure.  Some of the group are tricked into eating some magic mushrooms and then are manipulated by one of the others in the group .  Much fucked up shit occurs along the way.  Some supernatural alchemicon type shit… and some brutally human mean spiritedness.  This is available on prime and you’ll need to watch it with the subtitles on (some of the English is pretty tough to understand).  The score to the film helps to keep it feeling spooky, authentic and legit.  Lots of war drums in this one.  (NW)
