The Killing Of A Sacred Deer competed at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival where it found some success. Director Yorgos Lanthimos and Efthymis Filippou ended up winning the Best Screenplay award. For fans of Lanthimos’ work, it’s being touted as the scariest movie of The Lobster director’s career.
The premise of the psychological thriller revolves around a prominent surgeon adopting a teenager into his family. When the teen’s actions grow increasingly sinister, the doctor is forced to make a terrible decision. Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Barry Keoghan, Raffey Cassidy and Alicia Silverstone star in the film.
The trailer totally gave me the creeps. It’s absolutely chilling. The eerie a capella rendition of Ellie Goulding’s “Burn” adds to the creep factor.
Check out the trailer below. The Killing of a Sacred Deer arrives in theaters October 27.
