A young boy discovers a corpse while biking in the woods, then faces unexpected and macabre consequences when he tries to bury it."The Earth Rejects Him", an original horror story written by Jared Skolnick, is a haunting and surreal tale. Influenced by the films of Werner Herzog, Terrence Malick and Guillermo del Toro, as well as the short stories of HP Lovecraft, this project promises to be a unique and terrifying experience, an elegant horror film about modern man’s relationship with the unknowable powers found in nature.
