Trailer for The Killing of a Sacred Deer

The latest movie by  Yorgos Lanthimos, The Killing of a Sacred Deer revolves around a teenage boy trying to bring his family surgeon into his family. What happens from here…well, I’m not really sure. Lanthimos has a reputation for weird movies and this one looks to fit the mold. All I see for sure is a strong cast, a bunch of people under anesthesia, and a lot of creepiness. Things will go very, very wrong here.

Take a look at the trailer and see if maybe you can figure out more than I have. I’m sure some people can figure out the entire movie just from this precious minute-and-a-half.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer has already seen high praise at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. Lanthimos and fellow writer  Efthymis Filippou won the Best Screenplay award, and the film itself was selected to compete for the Palm d’Or, the most prestigious prize at Cannes. Current Metacritic reviews also feature solid praise for the film.

So does this weird, thrilling trailer interest you? Or does it make you groan and pass? Let us know in the comments. If I figure this question out myself, I’ll join you.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer releases on October 27. It stars Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Raffey Cassidy, Sunny Suljic, Bill Camp, Barry Keoghan, and Alicia Silverstone.
