Nick Antosca's Antlers Looks Hungry for Fresh Meat: First Teaser Trailer

Tagline: "Pray It Desires Not You."

Antlers is a film from director Scott Cooper (Hostiles, 2017) and writer Nick Antosca. The film is based on Antosca's short story, titled "The Quiet Boy." The short story may or may not be about cannibals, who lurk around a small town, at night. Antlers is a full length feature, developed by Fox Searchlight Pictures. The film stars: Keri Russell (Grimm Love) as a small town teacher, along with: Jesse Plemons, JT Corbitt, Graham Greene, Scott Haze and Rory Cochrane. Now, the first trailer for the film is available, along with a new poster.

The trailer is a good one as it reveals only a sliver of the film's plot. Lucas (Jeremy T. Thomas) talks of his daily routine of living "in a cave" as one of "three bears." He feeds the other two bears, until his small dinners are not enough. But, Big Bear and Baby Bear have turned into something else. And, they are looking to thee town for better eats.

Antlers will release in 2020, via a theatrical release. Fox Searchlight will handle this release. Shot in Hope, B.C., this title looks to be one of the creepier horror films to come out. And, with Guillermo del Toro at the helm, viewers will know that there will be a focus on setting, with a fantasy element incorporated into the story. All of the latest details, on Antlers, along with the short story "The Quiet Boy" are below.
