Cory Finley’s deliciously dark directorial debut is a terrific riff on classics from the 80s, with two of the hottest stars in Hollywood in the leading roles.

Focussing on two lost souls who find a very strange connection with one another, Thoroughbreds stars Anya Taylor-Joy and Olivia Cooke.

After co-starring in the chilling period horror The Witch (2015), the teens have risen to Hollywood stardom.

The last time we spoke to Taylor-Joy, she was promoting Split. Since then, she’s completed a sequel to the M. Night Shyamalan movie, and will soon be appearing in an X-Men spin-off. Meanwhile, Olivia Cooke is also on her way to stardom. In addition to starring in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One, Cooke is known for her recurring role on the TV series Bates Motel.
