The trailer of Scott Cooper’s first horror movie, Antlers, is out and it has received excellent reviews within the first few days of its release. Scott Cooper is known for directing gritty crime dramas, western adventures, and romantic musical drama in the first ten years of his film-making. In the trailer, the creepy “horror in the hills” vibe has been strongly presented by Cooper and Nick Antosca’s work in the film. And the presence of Guillermo del Toro has also added aesthetics to the movie.
Antlers movie is expected to release in the theatre in 2020. The movie has been directed by Scott J Cooper with the screenplay by C. Henry Chaisson & Antosca and Cooper himself. It is based on Antosca’s short story, “The Quiet Boy” and has been produced by the team of producers including del Toro, David Goyer, and J. Miles Dale. Keri Russell, Jesse Plemons, JT Corbitt, Graham Greene, Scott Haze, Rory Cochrane, and Amy Madigan are present in the movie.
Filmmaker Scott Cooper had not invested his efforts in making a horror film, but he had reflected the essence of this genre in his earlier movies namely, “Hostiles” and “Black Mass” and “Crazy Heart.” Antlers movie has been set in a small town in Oregon and it takes a fairytale-like approach of a story. In the first trailer of the film, creepy fairy tale theme has been used for the storytelling, with plenty of creepy imagery to keep it pumping right along.
The film’s synopsis follows a small town, Oregon in which a teacher (Russel) and his brother, the local sheriff, who got twisted with a young student harboring a dangerous secret with frightening consequences.
