It Comes At Night

Dir. Trey Edward Shults. USA, 2017. 1h 32m. Starring Joel Edgerton, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Carmen Ejogo, Christopher Abbott, Riley Keough, Griffin Robert Faulkner.

Alone in the woods, a family is threatened by an unspecified and unverified danger that lurks in the darkness. Paranoia and suspense govern this minimalist horror that doesn’t play by the rules of the genre.

’It's a grim vision of a world losing track of objective facts, descending into a poisonous abyss of chaos and disorder. No wonder it strikes such a contemporary chord.’ ★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Observer

The end of the world by lantern light: intimate and flickering up close, with unfathomable blackness beyond.’ ★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
