Scott Cooper’s ‘Antlers’ to Close Beyond Fest After Pandemic Delays

Scott Cooper’s ‘Antlers’ to Close Beyond Fest After Pandemic Delays

Scott Cooper’s horror thriller “Antlers” is finally ready to trot.

The Searchlight Pictures release, delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, will bow as the closing night film of the annual Beyond Fest. After, it will continue rolling out at global genre festivals, including Fantastic Fest, the Telluride Horror Show and Sitges Film Festival.

The tour will conclude with a domestic theatrical release on Oct. 29.

“I made ‘Antlers’ as a communal theatrical experience for cinema lovers,” said director and co-writer Cooper. “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.”

Cooper, whose credits include “Hostiles” and “Crazy Heart,” helms the pic, produced by Guillermo del Toro, David S. Goyer (“The Night House”) and J. Miles Dale of the upcoming “Nightmare Alley.
