Ever since seeing the teaser trailer for Thoroughbreds in October, the film has been high on our watch list. It was darkly funny and striking, but this new full-length trailer is 10x darker, funnier and secures the film as a must-see.
The film follows an unlikely friendship between two teenage girls – played by Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel) and Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Split) – who form a sinister plan to solve both their “problems”. The cast additionally features the late Anton Yelchin, Paul Sparks and Kaili Vernoff.
Thoroughbreds is the directing debut of Cory Finley’s and securing such a strong cast certainly seems like his first step is a strong one. Be sure to catch Thoroughbreds when it is released in the USA on 9th March 2018. It has already received rave reviews since screening at Sundance and Fantastic Fest, so we can’t wait to see the film’s dramatic blend of comedy and horror collide next year.
