“Iu0026#39;m somewhat of a fan of Mr. Cooper. Especially his last movie Hostiles made me really appreciate his movies. Even if his works arenu0026#39;t masterpieces Iu0026#39;m more intrigued to watch one of his movies instead of something completely generic. He feels like someone that truly wants to tell a story what sometimes works and sometimes doesnu0026#39;t.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWith Antlers Iu0026#39;m really ok the fence as we have some decent ideas that could make maybe not the most creative horror flick but something enjoyable. I just feel like a lot of the plotpoints were handled so poorly that it left me quiet bored for a huge part of the movie. So often I just asked myself why this was written the way it is.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNot many characters here feel like they make rational decisions and stuff just happens so we can get to the next scene in the script. The climax doesnu0026#39;t really feel like it was deserved and the monster acts really inconsistence at times. It felt like they should have done a better job setting up the lore about it which is weird as a huge chunk of the movie is just build up.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe acting is fine. It feels like the script didnu0026#39;t really give them a lot to work with. Character interactions feel rather stiff at times and couldu0026#39;ve used a bit of warmth to them.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSomething I have to praise the movie about are the special effects. It reminded me a bit of the Thing, even though there is still a huge difference, but with both movies I felt really uncomfortable at times looking at a corpse or such. So good job for that.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWe are also awarded with some nice looking shots. They made a good job of using the area they shot in to their advantage.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSo all in all a slightly above average horror movie that just feels rather sloppy with itu0026#39;s execution at times and could have definitely been better just having the core setup in mind.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI wouldnu0026#39;t say you need to see this in the theaters. Just wait until itu0026#39;s streaming somewhere and watch it then if youu0026#39;re really interested.”
