Featurette examines The Killing of a Sacred Deer, starring Colin Farrell

Colin Farrell Yorgos Lanthimos The Killing of a Sacred Deer

I am highly intrigued by director Yorgos Lanthimos's "suburban Greek tragedy" horror film THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER, which is currently playing in select theatres across the US and was just released in parts of the UK and Europe this past weekend. Although I haven't seen Lanthimos's previous films, which include DOGTOOTH and THE LOBSTER, this one is definitely drawing me in.

Written by Lanthimos and Efthymis Filippou, the film centers on 

a successful surgeon who attempts to integrate a teenager into his family, but when the teen’s actions grow increasingly sinister, the doctor is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice.

Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Barry Keoghan, Raffey Cassidy, Sunny Suljic, Bill Camp, and Alicia Silverstone star.

To help promote the film's theatrical release, a featurette has arrived online that focuses on Lanthimos's "original voice" and his approach to telling this story.

THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER isn't playing in any theatres that I'm going to be able to make it to, so I'm going to have to wait for this one, but I'm looking forward to checking it out as soon as possible. If it's actually in a theatre near you, check out the featurette below and see if this looks like something you would like to go out to see.
