The Killing of a Sacred Deer Movie Review 2017

Yorgos Lanthimos reveals what it feels like to face your ultimate fear with this horror mystery. Stepping into the fear zone. The director really knows how to illuminate the most profound fear in an almost impossible situation, a human mind can perceive. The plot throws all the questions before you with little to almost no hope for a happy ending.

Nicole Kidman who reprises the role of a gorgeous wife of the Surgeon (portrayed by Colin Farrel), having two children; 15 and 16 years old. Respectively, has once again raised the bar of acting standard with her stupendous performance.

All hell begins to set loose when a teenager dies right on the operating table. Then leaving the surgeon with nothing but unexpected evil to come knocking at his door. The vague terms between the then demised kid, Martin and Steven remains unclear in the beginning of the movie.

To maintain the element of mystery. The surgeon introduces the young Martin as the friend of his daughter and invites him for a dinner. Only to find; he begins to develop coming-age romantic sentiments for the daughter Kim.

The story throws much clearer, wider and understandable idea about how the story goes, before the voodoo menace sets all hell breaks loose. The mystery and the approach the director shows for the plot, is highly applauded among the critics and audience welcomed the movie with open arms.


Speaking of the story, the ratings wouldn’t be any less than 8 out of 10 and the direction of the movie, adds boost to what a horror movie really feels like. One thing for sure, that you would not regret watching the movie in the first place is. You could not simply come up with a statement that this is just a regular horror movie.

Starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Ferrel, the duo raised the bar for the forthcoming movies in the same genre. The movie is a must a watch. If you really have the knack for unveiling the mystery and the sacrifice that the main protagonist has to made, in order to get rid of the dwindling faith in good.
