It Comes at Night
These studios know how to release horror movies….right in the beginning of June. Perfect. It Comes at Night (gross), tells the story of 2 families colliding and posting up in a desolate house in the woods trying to escape some kind of terror. Is the terror outside or is it the paranoia that builds in this house? Joel Edgerton is the most popular actor in this film, while Trey Edward Shults writes and directs this horror thriller. Shults has written and directed a few shorts, such as Krisha, Two to One, and Mother and Son. Go to the theater at night to see It Comes at Night.
