Goofs

On more than one occasion in the film, a lead character uses gasoline as fuel to start a fire, but then carelessly leaves the gas can in dangerously close proximity to the open flames as he lights his matches and starts the fire. In real life it would have been extremely likely that fumes from the gas can would have ignited, being so close to the open flames, and possibly caused serious injury or death to the lead character or others nearby.

Interesting; not your typical horror film
11 June 2017 | by davispittmanSee all my reviews

It comes at night (2017) is a very interesting horror-thriller film. Now let me just start out by saying that if you are wanting to see this movie based on the way in which the trailers made it look, then you may very well be disappointed. The film is not by any stretch of the imagination your run of the mill horror flick, truth be told I wouldn't even consider it a horror film at all, it's a psychological thriller. Very big difference between a horror and a psychological thriller. If you typically enjoy psychological thrillers or if you enjoy a movie that has a deeper meaning than your average movie, then you will probably like this one. The plot is centers around two families. The main being a family of three and then there is a second family that is invited to stay with the main family because they're in dire need of supplies. It is set in what I can only assume is post apocalyptic world, based on what the main characters say. There is a known disease going around everywhere and that is why everyone is so desperate and the main family wears gasmasks whenever they go out. The cast includes Joel Edgerton, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Carmen Ejogo, Christopher Abbott, and Riley Keough. The actors all give incredible performances, Harrison Jr., Abbott, and Keough shine the brightest in my opinion, Edgerton is good too, but Harrison, who plays his son exceeds him as far as a compelling performance goes. The directing is on point throughout the entire film, I commend Trey Edward Shults for his clear talent that is displayed here. The movie makes you think, it is a complex and interesting movie to watch and then discuss afterwards. After seeing this film, I want to see The Witch, another well received thriller/horror distributed by A24. 8/10 for It comes at night.
