Ever since The Americans wrapped its run in 2018, I’ve been waiting to see what Keri Russell does next. The actress (who inexplicably never won an Emmy or a Golden Globe for her stunning portrayal of Soviet agent Elizabeth Jennings) has since appeared in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker as Zorii Bliss, a character I would have loved to see more of.

But Antlers promises to be a fitting showcase for Russell, who stars in the moody horror film directed by Scott Cooper (Black Mass). The synopsis reads “A small-town Oregon teacher (Keri Russell) and her brother (Jesse Plemons), the local sheriff, discover that a young student (Jeremy T. Thomas) is harboring a dangerous secret with frightening consequences.”

The film is produced by Guillermo del Toro and is based on the short story “The Quiet Boy” by Nick Antosca. The visuals are stark and haunting, and the film looks like a terrific entry into the slow-burn horror canon. But more importantly, it looks like it will give us more of Keri Russell kicking ass.

Antlers hits theaters on April 17, 2020.

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
