Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes the world, a man has established a tenuous domestic order with his wife and son, but this will soon be put to test when a desperate young family arrives seeking refuge.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror Mystery - While technically a horror film, the style of this very dark and downbeat film is more of a slow-moving psychological suspense thriller, so those looking for more traditional jump scares, faster pacing, and payoffs will be disappointed. There are some moments of violence and bloodshed, as well as strong language and sexual situations, that make the film not for kids. Joel Edgerton fans should be pleased.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good ...a character-driven foray into psychological horror. I'm hard-pressed to think of a recent movie that's as uncomfortable and disturbing as It Comes at Night. It Comes at Night doesn't compromise and for those who love a grittier, less audience-friendly flavor of horror, it's a must-see.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good It is a movie in which the villains are loss, grief, pain, fear, and distrust—very human emotions—and it is has no traditional undead brain-eaters. There are no zombies in the streets, boogeymen in the basement or witches in the woods—and yet it is one of the most terrifying films in years.

USA Today Full Review
Good ...a well-crafted, albeit entirely bleak exploration of paranoia and fear. ...ambitiously moves beyond a conventional creepfest or a film built on cheap scares and big swerves. Instead, it's an artful, often Hitchcockian look at our own human failings in dealing with a threat we know is there but cannot see.

NY Post Full Review
Good Here's what we don't know: Almost everything else. And this is what makes "It Comes at Night” as claustrophobic as the view from inside one of the family's omnipresent gas masks.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 22 moviegoers:
Unfortunately, this movie wasn't well attended on its opening weekend, at our theater at least, but the few reviews we were able to collect clearly shows it wasn't a movie most enjoyed, despite the high reviews given by movie critics.
TEENS: Two males loved it, one enjoyed it very much, but the remaining three were somewhat to very disappointed. The ladies enjoyed it even less. Only two of the five somewhat enjoyed it. Usually, teen females are the audience for scary/horror movies so these are very low reviews.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Poor reviews from the two males and two females.
ADULTS: One male rated it "average" and one rated it "below average." Only one of the five females truly enjoyed it. The rest rated it "average" to "poor."
