‘Antlers 2021’ Plot
Julia Meadows (Keri Russell), a school teacher in a small town in Oregon, and her sheriff brother, Paul (Jesse Plemons) discover that one of her students is harbouring a dark secret that may be connected to a dangerous ancestral creature.
Producer J. Miles was drawn to Hope due to its moody natural setting, the quaint, small-town look and proximity to Vancouver, the heart of Hollywood North.
The sometimes gloomy weather in the fall was perfect for this tale of nature getting its revenge on mankind by raining horror and chaos on the small town.
