The upcoming horror film Antlers has teased its monster over its last few trailers, but here provides us with our best look at the mythological monster that lurks in the dark periphery of its story.

The Guillermo del Toro-produced, Scott Cooper-directed horror movie released a final trailer that featured more of the story for the film and gave us a grisly and frightening look at the monster at the center of it — the mythological Wendigo, which hails from the folklore of the Native American Algonquian tribes based in the northern forests of Nova Scotia, the East Coast of Canada, and Great Lakes Region of Canada.

In Antlers, a small-town Oregon teacher, played by Keri Russell, and her brother, the local sheriff played by Jesse Plemons, discover that a young student, played by Jeremy T. Thomas, is harboring a dangerous secret with frightening consequences.

Joining the lead trio are JT Corbitt, Graham Greene, Scott Haze, Rory Cochrane and Amy Madigan.

Antlers is directed by Scott Cooper, known for his directorial work on Crazy Heart and the quiet western Hostiles, starring Christian Bale, Ben Foster and Rosamund Pike. The film was written by C. Henry Chaisson, known for Open 24 Hours, as well as Nick Antosca and Scott Cooper, and was based upon the short story “The Quiet Boy” by Nick Antosca.

The film is produced by Oscar-winner Guillermo del Toro (known for some of the best films of the last two decades, such as The Shape of Water and Pan’s Labyrinth, as well as blockbuster hit Pacific Rim), David S. Goyer (of The Dark Knight, Foundation, and Batman Begins fame), and Oscar-winner J. Miles Dale (The Shape of Water, The Strain, Mama).

Antlers will be released in theaters April 17, 2020.
