Antlers (2021, Dir. Scott Cooper)

Left-field ancestral monster horror, with some nice photography, good performances and icky moments. Let down by a poor script and a pace that doesn’t move quickly or scarily enough when it needs to. Worth watching for the weirdness of it all.

Antlers (2021, Dir. Scott Cooper)

The Shape of Water (2017, dir. Guillermo del Toro)

A mute cleaner falls in love with a humanoid aquatic creature being held in a government research laboratory. Dazzlingly confident romantic fantasy with SF/horror touches. Amelie meets The Creature From The Black Lagoon with a bit of Little Voice. Highly recommended.
