Some of the YouTube comments on the trailer are comedic gold.

There aren’t a whole lotta A24 films I actually enjoy, but I’ll keep trying.

Wow. Maybe you should stop trying at this point. There aren't a whole lotta A24 films that I haven't enjoyed. Standouts include "Hereditary", "Lady Bird", "Green Room", "The Witch", "Minari", "Under the Skin", "Locke", "Ex Machina", "It Comes at Night", "The Farewell", "The Florida Project", "Eighth Grade", "The Hole in the Ground", "On the Rocks", "A Most Violent Year", "Spring Breakers", "The Bling Ring", "Zola", "The Disaster Artist" and "20th Century Women",

Agreed. I see "From A24" and I'm already on board. Not that every one I've seen was perfect or blew me away, but I feel like the A24 aesthetic and vibe was always satisfying to me.

Yeah, typical online trolls. In this case, I'm sure they are teens or 20 somethings who only watch (and love) horror movies like "Saw" and those "Halloween" remakes/reboots. And there is nothing wrong with those films. But that's all they will watch. I know, I have two nieces who wouldn't even give "Hereditary" a chance when loaned them the movie. They said they heard it sucked. And that the trailers were "weird".

I was trying to avoid this but then one of my friends dropped a link the group chat and I had to give it a look.
When I was thinking it was going to be Attack of the Killer Sheep, I was slightly intrigued, but then...

the other thing

I...

...don't know what to say now....

^ Knowing only what I saw in the trailer I’m guessing
Spoiler:
it’s a dark psychological drama about a mother’s descent into madness after either being unable to conceive a baby or after having a miscarriage.

Oh absolutely. Yeah that was obvious but I just don’t know if I have the spoons to deal with that.

Some clickbait sites are suggesting the

angle.

I don't see it. I see some possibly supernatural and satanic The Omen type of shit if anything.

I see the Lamb as a symbolic Christ like representation and then the murder by man caused all hell to break loose. The cat eyeballing him gave off a vibe of an evil force that couldn't directly hurt him but wanted to.

Since this is A24 and it does deal with sheep and possible supernatural stuff, I wonder if
