In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods.
Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes the world, the tenuous domestic order he has established with his wife and son is put to the ultimate test with the arrival of a desperate young family seeking refuge. Despite the best intentions of both families, paranoia and mistrust boil over as the horrors outside creep ever-closer, awakening something hidden and monstrous within him as he learns that the protection of his family comes at the cost of his soul.Written by

Given the family's fear of discovery, why the would light fires at night or in the early evening when they would be seen from many more miles away than in the daytime is never explained. See more »
Can you hear me? Dad, can you hear me?

You don't need to fight it. You can just let it all go. Everything's okay.

I love you, dad. I do. I'm so sorry. Oh, god...

I must confess I was expecting way more of this "horror" film.
It started off quite well (hence the 4 rating) but after the first 30 minutes went downhill. No questions were answered, you are left with a large list of plot holes and an ending that couldn't be more predictable and boring.
Don't get me wrong, it isn't the worst "horror" film I ever saw but is avoidable especially if you like HORROR.
I'm still waiting for what comes at night.
