After pandemic delays, the horror film Antlers will finally see the light of day. Beyond Fest with American Cinematheque announced that the film will have its world premiere on the closing night of the horror festival.

Antlers was one of the anticipated horror films of 2020, but COVID-19 delayed its launch in theaters. This horror vision came from the team with director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart, Hostiles), with producers Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Mimic), David S. Goyer (The Night House, Apple TV+’s Foundation), and J. Miles Dale (Nightmare Alley).

The film stars Keri Russell, Jesse Plemons, and Jeremy T. Thomas.

Here’s the brief synopsis:

Antlers is set in an isolated Oregon town, a middle school teacher (Keri Russell) and her sheriff brother (Jesse Plemons) become embroiled with her enigmatic student (Jeremy T. Thomas) whose dark secrets lead to terrifying encounters with a legendary ancestral creature who came before them.

Antlers is written by C. Henry Chaisson (Servant), Nick Antosca (The Act), and Scott Cooper (Black Mass). It is based on the short story The Quiet Boy by Nick Antosca.

“I made Antlers as a communal theatrical experience for cinema lovers,” said director and co-writer Scott Cooper in a statement. “ I can’t think of a more apt series of screenings to launch our film before audiences across the globe—audiences whom I hope share an appreciation for horror films with a different perspective on our everyday fears and ancestral mythology.”

Antlers is set for theatrical release on October 29 domestically. It makes the world premiere with Beyond Fest on October 11. In a run-up to the theatrical release date, Fantastic Fest has a special screening on October 11 with Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas in San Francisco and Austin. The international premiere will take place at the Sitges International Film Festival on October 13. Also, it will be the closing night film of the Telluride Horror Show on October 17 and the special drive-in screening of the Chicago International Film Festival on October 15.
