It Comes at Night (15)

Lennox Herald - - REVIEW -

An apoc­a­lyp­tic hor­ror with a dif­fer­ence sees hordes of zom­bies and crazed, weapon-wield­ing hu­mans re­placed by a un­fore­seen ter­ror.

Dread drips from the screen in writer-di­rec­tor Trey Ed­ward Shults’ slow-burn show­case of fear.

Joel Eger­ton – who also pro­duced the movie – once again proves to be one of the finest tal­ents of his gen­er­a­tion with a multi-lay­ered per­for­mance.

The mys­tery takes its time to un­ravel, but it’s worth the wait and Shults takes things in some sur­pris­ing di­rec­tions.

Para­noia looms large and the hor­rors of hu­mankind prove ev­ery bit as men­ac­ing as any po­ten­tial su­per­nat­u­ral or vi­ral threat.
