Antlers

What to Know

Critics Consensus

It struggles to find a successful balance between its genre and allegorical elements, but Antlers is sharp enough to recommend as a richly atmospheric creature feature.

Audience Says

Antlers can be a little heavy-handed and it isn't very scary, but if you give this slow-burning story time to work, it'll get its hooks in you.

Antlers | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Wenlei Ma News.com.au Laden with doom, viscera and its own seriousness, Antlers is a sometimes effective, sometimes frustrating horror movie. Rated: 3/5 Nov 2, 2021 Full Review Antlers | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com Cooper doesn't pull a single punch, and this may be his bleakest storytelling endeavor yet. Rated: 3.5/4 Nov 2, 2021 Full Review Antlers | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Simran Hans Observer (UK) It's satisfyingly gross - there's plenty of black bile, crunching bones and half-chewed bodies. Rated: 3/5 Oct 31, 2021 Full Review Antlers | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Zach Pope Zach Pope Reviews I’m so disappointed…. Creature effects & look is awesome But it’s barley there & the movie feels itself as a drama that just never grabbed me. It’s filled with some great performances & great moments but their far and few between Jul 26, 2023 Full Review Antlers | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Manuel São Bento MSB Reviews Antlers is a cleverly shot, character-driven horror story with effective jumpscares and a captivating narrative that ultimately fails to reach its true potential. Rated: B- Jul 25, 2023 Full Review Antlers | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Dallas King Outtake Mag The plot itself does little to provide the scares, and the entire film is completely devoid of tension and incredibly repetitive. Rated: 1/5 Nov 12, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

Paul the only Guillermo del Toro movie I have NOT liked Rated 3/5 Stars • Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Vinod Not suspenseful enough. Rated 1.5/5 Stars • Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 12/30/21 Full Review Jason Q Growing up on the horror genre I would say this story rates up there as a movie to go 👀....however it does seem to a have a dull feel between the overall character play. It did serve well for some jump scares! Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/29/21 Full Review Ashley Loved the suspense but would have liked more detail on the backstory of the antlers. Felt rushed. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/24/21 Full Review Will.I.Am Good thriller flick, many scary moments had me jumping Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/23/21 Full Review Xander A Didnt go. Boyfriend has a neurological disorder and we found out about severe flash warnings right before walking in(: Rated 1/5 Stars • Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/22/21 Full Review Read all reviews
