If you’re into brutal thrillers, perhaps upcoming Netflix film Earth and Blood will be your cup of tea.
The official trailer has arrived for the French film, which follows Saïd, the owner of a sawmill located deep in the woods. He’s decided to sell, but those plans will have to wait. One of his apprentices was cornered by his brother and forced to hide a large amount of cocaine inside the factory. When the owners of the drugs arrive to get their product, well, judging by some of those snippets in the trailer below, it’s safe to say that some people will be… getting hurt. Looks like a tense outing with doses of borderline torture porn.
This one’s from French filmmaker Julien Leclercq, whose previous credits include The Assault, The Crew, and 2018 Jean-Claude Van Damme action-drama The Bouncer. Watch out for Earth and Blood to hit Netflix on April 17.

Forced to strike back to protect Sarah, Saïd transforms the sawmill into an embattled camp. And as the number of casualties grows, so does the thirst for revenge…
