Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes the world, the tenuous domestic order established by a man 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.
It Comes At Night had its world premiere at The Overlook Film Festival on April 29, 2017, and is scheduled to be released on June 9, 2017 in the United States by A24. It Comes at Night received critical acclaim upon its release.
It Comes At Night features a dark, chilling score by Brian McOmber (Krisha). His music is a smart combination of electronic elements, synths and strings which enhances the terror of the situation depicted in this unique psychological horror film.
