It Comes At Night is a survivalist thriller that centers on Paul (Joel Edgerton) a family man who’s determined to keep his son (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) and wife (Carmen Ejogo) in a world where people are dying from a mysterious plague (or is it a creature?).
Directed and written by Trey Edward Shults, It Comes At Night co-stars Christopher Abbott as a man who wanders into Paul’s home in the abandoned woods seeking food and shelter for his own family. With humanity on the brink of extinction, it’s hard to trust anyone but family, and Paul must decide if letting strangers into his home is the best way to go. A total nail-biter until the very end and filled with great performances, It Comes At Night is definitely worth a look.
