Guillermo Del Toro's Horror Movie Antlers Gets Striking And Scary Poster

What's in the woods?

Comments

Antlers is the latest horror movie to be produced by Guillermo Del Toro, and it hits theaters in April. The final trailer was released back in December, but ahead of the release, a new poster has arrived.

The trailers so far have been very effective and creepy and have put the emphasis on atmosphere and scares. The poster continues this. The new poster shows young star Jeremy T. Thomas looking very frightened, surrounded by... well, antlers. Big, scary, bloody antlers. Ok, it's not subtle, but it is hugely effective--check it out below:

Antlers also stars Keri Russell (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), Jesse Plemons (El Camino: A Breaking Bad Story), Rory Cochrane (CSI Miami), and Amy Madigan (Fringe). It's based on the legend of the legend of the Wendigo, the mythical man-eating beast that roams the woods of the Pacific Northwest, and is helmed by Black Mass director Scott Cooper. Antlers releases b April 17.

In an interview with Collider, Cooper spoke about being chosen by Del Toro to direct the movie, despite not having previously worked in the horror genre. "[Guillermo] said I've obviously never seen you direct a horror film, but there's a lot of horrific moments in your movies, so I'm more interested in someone who doesn't work in that genre to step into it," Cooper said. "Which is I guess a bit like [William] Friedkin in a sense, having not directing in that genre before he took on The Exorcist. So I find that exciting. "I was so influenced early on by the work of John Carpenter, like Halloween, or certainly The Exorcist which is a favorite of mine, or even Tarkovsky's Stalker. So I'm able to bring all of that into one film which is exciting."
