Watch: Sneak peek of Colin Farrell's latest film The Killing of a Sacred Deer

Irish actor Colin Farrell has reunited with The Lobster director Yorgos Lanthimos in the upcoming feature The Killing of a Sacred Deer - and it looks terrifying.

Farrell stars alongside Nicole Kidman and fellow Irish star Barry Keoghan in the psychological horror film.

The Dublin actor plays a surgeon who adopts a teenager (Keoghan) into his family but the teenager's actions grow increasingly sinister and he's forced to make a terrible decision.

The film received rave reviews when it premiered at Cannes Film Festival this summer.

The Hollywood Reporter called it "masterfully realised" and described Keoghan's performance as one "of chilling effectiveness".

The Killing of a Sacred Deer is released in October.
