It Comes at Night (2017)

This movie review should have seriously just been “WTF?”, but I figured you guys deserved more than that. There really isn’t much to say about this movie, which is probably the most confusing thing ever given a wide release. I really wish I knew what the point of the movie was, because if it was pretty obvious in the background, I missed it. If you ever figure it out, I’d love to know too. The only real meaning I took away from the film is this could actually be our future. As for the story, there is a lot of foreshadowing and potential for it to get even darker but ultimately never does. When the movie ends and the lights come up, which will literally just happen btw, you’ll be left dazed and confused.

  1. The horror fans are unhappy with this one because of the absence of blood and gore. It is superbly minimalist but conveys the full horror of what some people can or must do to survive dystopian catastrophe. This film works more because of what it does not show rather than the usual digitial spooks we usually see in this genre. The final scene is the most chilling because the absence of Travis at the table tells us what just happened. Tell me that killing your son is not an act of profound dystopian horror.
