The lovers of creepy mysterious stories have a new date to mark on their calendar. It was recently announced that It Comes at Night (2017) will come out this summer, in June. So far only a few countries like USA, Canada, France or Spain have the official release date, but it is to expect that producers distributors A24 will bring the film around the world. Taken from the plot summary written by A24, the story goes like this: “Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes the world, the tenuous domestic order he has established with his wife and son is put to the ultimate test with the arrival of a desperate young 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 him as he learns that the protection of his family comes at the cost of his soul”.
This is the second feature film by writer director Trey Edward Shults. After harvesting numerous awards with his debut film drama Krisha (2015), one of the surprises of 2015 Cannes Film Festival, now he changes the suit to be in front of a classic horror mystery supernatural thriller. Joel Edgerton, Riley Keough, Christopher Abbott, Carmen Ejogo, Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Griffin Robert Faulkner star in this claustrophobic title with predominant dark photography and creepy ambient.
Both the trailer and the plot summary reminds a lot the mexican movie Las Tinieblas (aka The Darkness) (2016), screened in the past Sitges Film Festival 2016. Although allegedly both of the films have no relation whatsoever. Check out the official trailer and see by yourself:
