Imagine the end of the world. Now imagine something worse. Award-winning filmmaker Trey Edward Shults follows his breakout debut KRISHA with the psychological horror thriller IT COMES AT NIGHT (A24), centering on a teenage boy, played by Kelvin Harrison, Jr., as he grapples with mounting terrors — both external and internal — in the aftermath of an unnamed cataclysm. Secure within a desolate home with his vigilant, protective, and heavily armed parents, played by Joel Edgerton and Carmen Ejogo, 17-year-old Travis navigates fear, grief and paranoia amid scarce resources as a desperate young couple, portrayed by Christopher Abbott and Riley Keough, 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, as Travis discovers that his father’s commitment to protecting the family may cost him his soul.
IT COMES AT NIGHT examines the dark side of human nature. On June 9th, brace yourself for a nightmare you won’t be able to shake.
