Finally, Antlers will rear its horrifying head.
The much-delayed horror film from producer Guillermo del Toro and director Scott Cooper has secured a release date, according to comicbook.com, and several eerie images (seen on this page) should give fans a good idea what they have been waiting for.
Antlers started filming back in 2018, but one complication after another (not the least of which was the pandemic) delayed its release. But now, an Oct. 29 debut–right on Halloween’s doorstep–seems appropriate for this horror entry.
Antlers follows Oregon teacher Julia Meadows (Keri Russell) and her police officer brother Paul (Jesse Piemons) as they discover a young student named Lucas Weaver (Jeremy T. Thomas) “is harboring a dangerous secret…with frightening consequences,” according to the official synopsis.
That secret, as explained, is that someone close to the boy–perhaps his father–is possessed by a Wendigo. And the boy is bringing the creature food–in the form of unwilling townspeople.
Antlers–helmed by Cooper from a screenplay he wrote with C. Henry Chaisson and Nick Antosca–was adapted from Antosca’s short story The Quiet Boy, which first appeared in the January 2019 issue of Guernica magazine.
