It Comes at Night REVIEWS
Not a horror at all... but a VERY REALISTIC and EXTREMELY WELL CRAFTED post apocalyptic film
The first thing worth mentioning about this film is that it is not a horror film at all. The film was completely mismarketed as another run of the mill horror film on purpose. This did two things. It secured the film a nation wide theater release which it surely wouldn't have gotten otherwise, and it baited in a larger, more casual audience that w...
Engrossing, Haunting, and Stunning
"Do you have any idea what's going on out there?". Early on in director Trey Edward Shults' It Comes at Night, Joel Edgerton's Paul asks Christopher Abbott's Will this question. All Will can do is shake his head. For the majority of the film, the audience is left in the dark as well, with Shults refusing to provide easy answers and instead forcing...
A Small-Scale Title with Bigger Implications.
It Comes at Night is a film that discards typical horror movie tropes in place of actual craftsmanship. There are no big revelations being made here, no grand "aha" moment that would have you giving a standing ovation. All it offers you is a general sense of paranoia that's fostered under the right set of circumstances. . Using different aspect ra...
This Film Will Rip The Audiences and Critics Apart // INSTAGRAM: MOVIESMANIAX
A24, from now until the day I die, I will be watching every single horror movie you buy, you have my word. Are you tired of watching dumb characters making bad decisions and getting themselves killed? Or those that could have survived but eventually died because of their careless moves? Or those predictably loud and annoying jump scares that you h...
This Is Real Horror
**Spoiler-Free. The Critics were right. This movie is great. This isn't your fake horror movie, with jump scares, where you're getting scared at noise, not something actually frightening on the screen. The acting is exceptional, same as the directing and cinematography. This movie is really about what people will do to protect their family, and th...
An Exceptional Feat in Horror Filmmaking
Trey Edward Shults' second film is a simple--but phenomenal--horror film that creates an unique and tense feeling of existential dread. This is what makes the film truly scary, rather than cheap jump-scares. The plot centers on a family and their guests living in a cabin. A disease has wiped out much of humanity and they are living off the grid in...
A master class in horror/suspense filmmaking
I rarely give out 10 stars but this movie deserves it. I have been extremely excited for this movie for awhile. A24 has been really upping their game lately (especially with Moonlight) and I had high hopes for this movie. Sure enough, it turned out to be a masterful suspense film. As you watch you immediately get a sense of isolation and lonelines...
"The Only Thing We Have to Fear is Fear Itself"
How do you review a film too challenging to blanketly recommend, but is among the best this year? That's exactly my predicament with It Comes a Night, a movie marketed as a bump-in-the-night scarefest, but in reality is a deathly serious, brutally difficult critique of fear and isolation. Unlike your basic monster / slasher flick, this will distur...
It's obviously not for everyone, but if you love quality film you should enjoy it!
'IT COMES AT NIGHT': Four and a Half Stars (Out of Five). A psychological horror flick written and directed by sophomore feature filmmaker Trey Edward Shults. It's set in a future world, where an unexplained illness has wiped out a large percentage of the population (and made everyone else paranoid of each other). A family that's survived in isola...
Don't believe the hate. Actually a great movie.
Mild Spoilers ahead.. This is my first time writing a review on IMDb. Let me start off by saying this movie is not a monster movie, it's a suspenseful drama. The movie is advertised as a monster horror film, so I can see why people would be annoyed after seeing this movie. But these people are just angry because they didn't watch the movie they wa...
