What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Antlers is a horror movie based on Nick Antosca's short story "The Quiet Boy" about a monstrous creature that descends on a small Oregon town. Produced by the masterful Guillermo del Toro, it follows a teacher (Keri Russell) who discovers that one of her students is harboring a supernatural monster that wreaks disaster on the community. With the help of her sheriff brother (Jesse Plemons), she must find a way to stop it. Antlers looks to have bloody horrifying images, strong language, and lots of intense scary stuff, making this one best for mature teens who like to be scared.
