| Film Synopsis |

The myth of the dreaded “wendigo” comes to shocking life in this terrifying horror thriller. When a small-town Oregon teacher (Keri Russell) and her brother (Jesse Plemons), the local sheriff, seek to help a troubled young boy who possesses a strange secret, the consequences are more dreadful than they could have possibly imagined.

| Video |

ANTLERS is presented in a gorgeous 1080p presentation in its original aspect ratio that captures the film well. Blacks are deep and dynamic and shadow detail is excellent.  There's not a lot of sunshine in the film but for this kind of film there shouldn't be.

| Audio |

ANTLERS comes with an outstanding DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio track.  The dialogue and sound effects are appropriately balanced with the unsettling score where nothing gets lost in the mix.  I was on the edge of my seat during the scary moments.

| Overall Reaction |

ANTLERS delivers a lot of thrilling moments but slightly stumbles on pacing issues. The actors performances are excellent including young child star Jeremy T. Thomas. It does have some shockingly gory moments to sell itself as a horror movie but found it to be more of a thriller. Recommended.
