The Killing Of A Scared Deer Trailer With Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell Is A Twisted Family Horror
Horror has had a great run the last few years by bringing in great returns at the box office. As they always cost much less to make then today’s tent pole films they have helped balance the books for the major studios. That and the simple fact that the horror genre is general has been enjoying a resurgence in popularity the movie studios now seem to ‘get it’. Horror movies are awesome for the audience and the pocket book. There are now over 20 horror TV shows in prime time as well. Horror is killing it. The remake of Stephen King’s IT is expected to bring in more then $50 Mill opening weekend.
Now the studios seem to be bringing bigger stars and directors to the genre. A few weeks ago we saw the trailer for ‘Mother’ from director Darren Aronofsky and starring Academy Award Winners Jennifer Lawrence and Michelle Pfeiffer. Now we get the trailer for ‘The Killing Of A Sacred Deer’ starring Academy Award Winner Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell. It looks to be a dark and wicked psychological horror that envelopes a family and descends them into a horrible nightmare. Take a look below.
From writer/director Yorgos Lanthimos and starring Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Barry Keoghan, and Alicia Silverstone. The Killing of a Sacred Deer – In Theaters October 27
The horror films from the larger studios seem to be aiming for horror on a mental level as opposed to the gore horror we are used to. I appreciate when a film asks us to pay attention as long as they story is as good as the visuals. Looking forward to seeing this twisted film come October.
