A24 Shifts ‘The Killing of the Sacred Deer’ Release

No matter the subject matter, nearly all of A24’s releases end up being pretty dark genre films. The next one is pretty interesting, especially since it stars both Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman.

After having its world premiere in Competition at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, A24 will release Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Killing of a Sacred Deer on October 27, 2017, a week earlier than originally slated.

Also starring Alicia Silverstone and Bill Camp:

In the psychological revenge thriller, Farrell plays a successful surgeon who attempts to integrate a teenager into his family, but when the teen’s actions grow increasingly sinister, the doctor is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice.

It sounds pretty dark and something the company behind The Witch, The Blackcoat’s Daughter, Ex Machina, Tusk, Under the Skin, and even The Monster would release.

    Is this one of those things people call ‘Post-Horror’? AkA…..a thriller?!

    • Thanks God someone said that!

    • “Post-Horror” ?! 😀 😀 That term is right up there with the late 80s’ “It’s Not A Horror Film !!!”.

    sounds good I loved dogtooth and the lobster so I’m sure this movie will be hugely fucked up. A24 does has some misses though, The Witch was just stupid, I don’t mind slow burn but it went nowhere that movie. Did nothing for me at all. It was pretty to look at thats it. The Monster was just flat out garbage felt like a SYFY film made with a few more dollars. I’m sure there was a few others too. But hey can’t have everything perfect.

  • I’ve loved everything I’ve seen from A24, so it’s worth a shot.

    Is it A Sacred Deer, or THE Sacred Deer?
