We have seen Yorgos Lanthimos’ dystopian romance The Lobster which was a different and contemporary cinema, we now get to watch the first trailer for The Killing of a Sacred Deer that will exceed all our expectations.

The movie’s new teaser showcases a lot of action and unexpected happenings. The film has striking camerawork by cinematographer Thimios Bakatuakis. The film is based on a story of a prominent surgeon (Colin Farrell) who forms a mysterious bond with a young man (Dunkirk’s Barry Keoghan), which turns tragic as the boy seemingly curses his new acquaintance’s family with a disease or condition similar to paralysis, as many characters are seen drawing themselves, crawling on their hands and knees, falling unconscious and collapsing, they are not able to control their bodies in the preview.

“I don’t understand why I should have to pay the price, why my children should have to pay the price,” Nicole Kidman is seen in the role of Colin Farrell’s wife, says. Keoghan responds: “It’s the only thing I can think of that’s close to justice.”

The Killing of a Sacred Deer premiered in competition earlier this year at the Cannes Film Festival, where it was appreciated as “Sophie’s Choice as a suburban horror movie” before the jury awarded Lanthimos its Best Screenplay award; he shared that award with You Were Never Really Here writer-director Lynne Ramsay.

Lanthimos’ latest is going to feature in a theatrical release on October 27 via A24.
