It Comes at Night
RELEASE DATE: June 9
DIRECTOR: Trey Edward Shults
CAST: Joel Edgerton, Christopher Abbott, Carmen Ejogo, Riley Keough
Shults made a splashy debut with last year’s micro-budget psychological drama Krisha; here, armed with a bigger budget and a few recognizable faces, he firmly confirms his place among our most exciting young filmmakers. As with Krisha, the story itself isn’t particularly earth-shattering – a post-apocalyptic tale of friendly and familial bonds sorely tested by paranoia and fear – but Shults’ rattling, raw style lodges itself under your skin, and in your head. A lean, mean, frightening piece of work.
