Antlers (2021, dir. Scott Cooper)

An alcoholic teacher in a run-down former mining community is concerned a student is being abused. Stately wendigo horror with allegorical intent: doesn’t quite link between first peoples’ famine, monsters, and opioid-depressed communities, but there’s a quiet professionalism at work, even if Cooper’s tendency to ponderousness dulls the piece at times.

Here’s another view.

And here’s the trailer.

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.
