Latest KILLING OF A SACRED DEER Trailer Sells The Deadpan Dread

The latest trailer for the Fantastic Fest hit teases Barry Keoghan's odd performance.

Fantastic Fest is almost over, and one of the absolute highlights was Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Killing of a Sacred Deer (read our rather positive review of the picture here). It’s possibly the most focused movie of the Greek director’s career, zeroing in on creating a palpable sense of Kubrickian dread throughout its two-hour runtime.

A24 seems to think so, too, as their latest spot for the movie all but tells you its a horrific, detached journey, complete with a chilling supporting performance from Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk).

Take a look: 

Sporting killer central performances from Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell, The Killing of a Sacred Deer opens October 20 in limited release. Make sure to catch it, as Yanthimos’ absurdist tragedy is sure to be on countless Top Ten lists come January.
