The trailer for Colin Farrell's new flick has landed and it's absolutely terrifying.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer stars Farrell as a surgeon who adopts a teenager (Love/Hate's Barry Keoghan) into his family but the teenager's actions grow increasingly sinister and he's forced to make a terrible decision.

Farrell teams up again with The Lobster director Yorgos Lanthimos for the psychological horror which also stars Nicole Kidman.

The film garnered hugely positive reviews at Cannes with The Hollywood Reporter calling it "masterfully realised" and describes Keoghan's performance as one "of chilling effectiveness".

The film releases Octobert 27.
