It Comes at Night

A film by Trey Edward Shults

Back
Imagine the end of the world. Now imagine something worse. This psychological horror thriller centers on a teenaged boy (Kelvin Harrison, Jr.) as he grapples with mounting terrors—external and otherwise—in the aftermath of an unnamed cataclysm. Secure within a desolate home with his vigilant, protective and heavily armed parents, 17-year-old Travis navigates fear, grief and paranoia amid scarce resources as a desperate young couple seeks refuge in his family home with their young child. Despite the best intentions of both families, panic and mistrust boil over as the horrors of the outside world creep ever closer. But they are nothing compared to the horrors within, where Travis discovers that his father’s commitment to protecting the family may cost him his soul.
