The Killing of a Sacred Deer is the latest from Yorgos Lanthimos, the eccentric filmmaker behind The Lobster and Dogtooth. And it’s clear from this trailer that Lanthimos has abandoned the kindhearted nature of The Lobster.

Check it out:

A teenager’s attempts to bring a brilliant surgeon into his dysfunctional family take an unexpected turn.

Lanthimos is never concerned with telling a straightforward tale, and The Killing Of a Sacred Deer looks to have the same quiet intensity of Dogtooth, his best film. You might know what’s going on after seeing this trailer, you might not. One thing is certain, however, whatever you think is happening probably isn’t. Is that a cryptic enough statement for you?

Along with Farrell and Nicole Kidman, The Killing of a Sacred Deer also stars Barry Keoghan as the teen who apparently upsets the group dynamic, and Alicia Silverstone (!).


Few things have excited me more in Hollywood these last few years like the career evolution of Colin Farrell. I have always been in his corner, and now it seems he is finding the right outlets for his unique acting abilities these past few years.

The Killing Of a Sacred Deer opens November 3. Are you looking forward to this one?
