The latest from writer-director Alex Garland (Annihilation, Ex Machina), this horror film stars Irish actress and Oscar-nominee Jessie Buckley as a young woman goes on a solo vacation to the English countryside following the death of her ex-husband.

However, upon arrival, she comes to believe someone or something is stalking her while every man in the village appears to have the same face (Rory Kinnear playing multiple roles).

JOE raved about the enigmatic first teaser for Men earlier in the year, but this trailer is even better, filled with creepy imagery and a nerve-jangling sound mix.

It also does great work in letting viewers know a little bit more about what they can expect from the film without revealing too much.

Men is set for a release in Ireland on 20 May.
