Genre veterans Veronica Cartwright (Alien, The Birds), Barry Bostwick (The Rocky Horror Picture Show) star in Tate Bunker‘s feature debut, the sci-fi supernatural thriller The Field.
In the film, to save their marriage, Ben (Tim Higgins) and Lydia (Kara Mulrooney) risk it all and buy a farmstead in small-town Manitowoc, Wisconsin. Lydia is determined to transform the rotting house into a dream home and finally start a family, but Ben’s photographs reveal they’re not alone…
Mysterious figures begin appearing in Ben’s photos and Lydia unearths grotesque artifacts in their house. An odd woman called Edith (Veronica Cartwright) is found to be living in a chicken coop on their property. Sheriff Roy (Mark Metcalf) tells the couple that Edith was abducted as a girl and gallery owner George (Barry Bostwick) warns Ben to stop taking pictures. Or else.
Written by Tate Bunker and Anthony Wood, the film is executive produced by Tate Bunker, Miles O’Neil, Curtis Brehm.
