Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman trade anesthesia hits in the new The Killing Of A Sacred Deer trailer.

“A surgeon never kills a patient,” Colin Farrell’s doctor character says in the new trailer for the upcoming A24 psychological horror film The Killing Of A Sacred Deer. “An anesthesiologist can kill a patient but a surgeon never can.”

The film, which co-stars Nicole Kidman and Barry Keoghan (Light Thereafter), is a slow-burning revenge drama in scrubs. The trailer shows Farrell bonding with a young patient, while bits of family history drop like medicine into an IV. Kidman’s character looks like she’s put out from the waist down as the surgical air gets thicker. The Killing Of A Sacred Deer was directed by Yorgos Lanthimos. The screenplay was written by Lanthimos and Efthymis Filippou.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer premiered in competition at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

According to the official synopsis, “in the psychological revenge thriller, Farrell plays a successful surgeon who attempts to integrate a teenager into his family, but when the teen’s actions grow increasingly sinister, the doctor is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice.”
