Does Antlers have a trailer?

The film’s first trailer came out over two years ago, setting the tone for the film while keeping many of its elements in proverbial and literal obscurity. The supernatural monster is barely seen, and that’s only towards the end of the trailer.

The second trailer showed much of the same footage, but still made things even darker without dialogue or narration like the first trailer. A little over a month ago, the last trailer for the film was released.

This trailer gives an overview of the story and some of the characters besides Lucas. Various previews of the monster from the film, which is said to be based on the mythical Wendigo, can also be seen, although a full image of it is still not seen. The moviegoers who were waiting to see Drink will finally get the chance to do so, however, when the beleaguered horror film hits theaters in a few weeks.
