It Comes At Night (15)

Horror, Mystery

Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes the world, a man has established a tenuous domestic order with his wife and son, but this will soon be put to test when a desperate young family arrives seeking refuge.

The critical consensus

Striking, devastatingly relatable second feature from Trey Edward Shults.

*****Nikki Baughan, The List, 03/07/2017

Full of character-based suspense, it’s dramatic and ramped-up with tension. Existing between a Sundance and a FrightFest film, this is a challenging, horribly plausible future vision.

****(*)Kim Newman, Empire Online, 06/07/2017

Rather disappointing in the end, but Shults delivers a few memorable scares.

***(*)(*)Elena Lazic, Little White Lies, 05/07/2017

After a virus wipes out civilisation, there are bleak and devastating scenes in this claustrophobic tale of two families coming together and falling apart.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 05/07/2017

This is certainly a bleak story but it’s also a rich and very nuanced one.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 05/07/2017

IT Comes At Night is an eerie tale that is all the more effective for its restraint.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 07/07/2017

One family is forced to shelter another in this deeply unsettling post-plague chiller that speaks to our paranoid age.

****(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 09/07/2017
