Seriously, what in the world is going on that has all the characters so terrified in It Comes At Night. Whatever it is, A24 is doing a stellar job keeping audiences in the dark about it. Get it?
With only a week left before the film’s release, we are getting a new trailer for the film that will surely dial up the fear. Check it out below.
While most horrors relish in the kill, Trey Edward Shults‘ It Comes At Night relies a lot on the jump scares and building tension. Here, a family who has been living in seclusion hesitantly opens their doors to another family desperately seeking refuge. Still, it’s the fact that these two families don’t know what’s going on out there and soon a question of if they can trust each other arises.
And perhaps that’s what’s most terrifying. Along with the tension building, there is the fact that we don’t know anything or if we can trust what any of these guys are saying. Is there a monster or isn’t their one? And It Comes At Night doesn’t seem to have any supernatural elements. It seems to rely more on paranoia and fear, and not knowing if what you fear truly exists.
Joel Edgerton, Christopher Abbott, Carmen Ejogo, Kelvin Harrison Jr., and Riley Keough star.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes the world, the tenuous order a man (Joel Edgerton) has established with his wife and son is put to the ultimate test with the arrival of a desperate family seeking refuge. Despite the best intentions of both families, paranoia and mistrust boil over as the horrors outside creep ever-closer, awakening something hidden and monstrous within the man as he learns that the protection of his family comes at the cost of his soul.
