Antlers is directed by Scott Cooper, who directed Jeff Bridges’ Oscar winning performance in Crazy Heart (2009. This is Cooper’s first venture in the horror genre, but the film is produced by genre veteran Guillermo del Toro. Keri Russell, best know for her role as the titular character from the long running TV series Felicity, stars alongside Jesse Pelmons. Russell and Pelmons play as small town siblings who discover that a young boy is harboring a potentially dangerous supernatural entity in his house.
From the trailer, I am loving the atmosphere of this film. The story appears to be a combination of a traditional creature feature crossed with the sensibilities of a more modern psychological thriller. The strong direction of Cooper is evident; Antlers looks like a serious horror movie made for a discerning audience. I am looking extremely forward to seeing this film.
