[Trailer] Anya Taylor-Joy and Olivia Cooke Plan a Murder in ‘Thoroughbreds’

The film has been described as American Psycho meets Heathers.

Out of Fantastic Fest earlier this year, Trace wrote up a list of 10 horror films from the festival that should be on your radar. One of those films was writer/director Cory Finley’s Thoroughbreds, which he called a “viciously dark comedy” with standout performances from Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Split) and Olivia Cooke (“Bates Motel”).

The trailer has arrived today via Focus Features. Check it out below.

In the film, which also stars the late Anton Yelchin

“Childhood friends Lily and Amanda reconnect in suburban Connecticut after years of growing apart. Lily has turned into a polished, upper-class teenager, with a fancy boarding school on her transcript and a coveted internship on her resume; Amanda has developed a sharp wit and her own particular attitude, but all in the process of becoming a social outcast.

Though they initially seem completely at odds, the pair bond over Lily’s contempt for her oppressive stepfather, Mark, and as their friendship grows, they begin to bring out one another’s most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler, Tim, and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.”

Thoroughbreds arrives in select theaters on March 9, 2018.

    In my world of horror cynicism this actually looks to be interesting.

    Really good cast in my opinion. I especially like Olivia Cooke, it’s also a damn shame about Anton! On the list it goes!

    This looks great, like a John Hughes film with a healthy dose of strychnine. Can’t wait to see it.
