Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.16.17] United Kingdom thriller drama

Holy shit.

That's pretty much the only thing going through my mind the first time I watched the trailer for for Yorgos Lanthimos' The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Our French correspondent had somewhat prepared me for something great to come but this trailer has more than sealed the deal.

Lanthimos' latest stars Colin Farrell as a surgeon and Nicole Kidman as his wife as the pair deal with a phenomenon where children, specifically theirs but perhaps others as well, start to lose control of their limbs.

The trailer is cryptic, beautiful (shot by Lanthimos' long-time cinematographer Thimios Bakatakis) and eerie. I never considered that Ellie Goulding's pop anthem "Burn" could be so sad and creepy.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer opens October 27.

Recommended Release: The Lobster

phenomenon? Looks like the teenage boy is getting revenge on Colin Farrell by paralzing his kids for botching a surgery or something.
