After the success of Ready Or Not, Fox Searchlight is turning into the go to place for Horrors. The latest one is the Guillermo Del Toro produced Scott Cooper (Hostiles) film Antlers.
During the night Fox released a genuinely creepy new (American) Trailer. A trailer full of Mystery, nightmarish atmosphere and a trailer drained of dialogue. Except for one word…’Daddy’!
The film is based on an Nick Antosca (Channel Zero) ‘Quiet Boy’. Antlers stars Keri Russell as Julia Meadows a school teacher in small Oregon town. Her brother Paul (Jesse Plemons) take interest Lucas Weaver (Jeremy T.Thomas) who maybe hiding a dangerous secret.
Check out the trailer…
In ANTLERS, a small-town Oregon teacher (Keri Russell) and her brother (Jesse Plemons), the local sheriff, discover that a young student (Jeremy T. Thomas) is harboring a dangerous secret with frightening consequences.
We do love horrors with a lot of atmosphere, gives an extra edge to the fear factor. The trailer doesn’t spoil anything or reveal too apart from the monster might be the boy’s father. Cooper can deliver the bleak cold tone like he did in Hostiles, that works perfectly in this genre. Del Toro’s influence on the film, gives the impression this film may be more a dark fairytale. When it’s based on Antosca’s own short story expect something uniquely strange!
The film also stars Graham Greene, Scott Haze, Rory Cochrane and Amy Madigan.
Antlers doesn’t have a confirmed UK or Irish release date. It’s still saying ‘2020’, however the U.S release date is 17th April 2020, so expect similar release time.
