Watch: Mythology Featurette for Scott Cooper's 'Antlers' Horror Film
"A diabolical wickedness that devours mankind." Searchlight Pictures has released a new featurette about the mythology of the horror film Antlers, from director Scott Cooper. The film was originally scheduled to open in April this year, but was delayed due to the pandemic. At first they were planning to reschedule it for this fall, but they have decided to push it all the way back until February 19th, 2021 next year. Antlers also showed up at Comic-Con this weekend with an "At Home" presentation (watch on YouTube) which is where this video is from. In the film, a small-town Oregon teacher and her brother, the local sheriff, become entwined with a young student harboring a dangerous secret with frightening consequences. It's adapted from a short story called "The Quiet Boy" by Nick Antosca. Antlers stars Keri Russell, Jesse Plemons, JT Corbitt, Graham Greene, Scott Haze, Rory Cochrane, and Amy Madigan. You can also watch the two trailers for this here & here. This looks seriously freaky, hopefully it will be in theaters in February.
