The trailer for Antlers is here, and it’s creepy as hell. Director Scott Cooper of Miami Fan Club and producer Guillermo del Toro have teamed to adapt a short story from Channel Zero creator Nick Antosca, and the results look incredibly promising. In the film, Keri Russell plays a small-town school teacher who begins to suspect all is not well with one of her students. Watch the Antlers trailer below.
Perhaps the most mysterious of all: Despite being a spooky, supernatural horror movie, Antlers will be distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, following the acquisition of 21st Century Fox. The movie is expected to arrive in 2020.
In it, a small boy narrates an eerie tale to his teacher about returning home to hungry bears whose insides turn black. The boy walks through the fog-drenched small town alone, entering his darkened home, where he eats his meals in the dark while a door rattles. We also see a figure wearing a gas mask and holding a red flare; a very creepy drawing; hanging bone-like objects; and a very ominous creature slithering through the dark. What does it all mean?
