Check out this new gruesome horror movie trailer has been revealed for producer Guillermo del Toro and director Scott Cooper’s upcoming horror movie Antlers. The upcoming new movie is packed with gruesome and creepy new footage that horror enthusiasts are going to love!
This is a crazy and bizarre-looking film and it’s an adaptation of a short story, The Quiet Boy, from Channel Zero creator Nick Antosca. The movie stars Keri Russell as a school teacher in a little-town who starts to suspect something is severely wrong with one of her young students.
In ANTLERS, a small-town Oregon teacher (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.
When talking about the importance of the movie, Copper explained, “I was so influenced early on by the work of John Carpenter, like Halloween, or certainly The Exorcist, which is a favorite of mine, or even Tarkovsky’s Stalker. So I’m able to bring all of that into one film which is exciting.” He went on to say:
“[Guillermo] said I’ve obviously never seen you direct a horror film, but there’s a lot of horrific moments in your movies, so I’m more interested in someone who doesn’t work in that genre to step into it. Which is I guess a bit like Friedkin in a sense, having not directing in that genre before he took on The Exorcist…[Guillermo is] fantastic and so supportive and wildly imaginative, so it’s really been a great collaboration.”
Antlers will be released on April 17th, 2020.
