It Comes At Night Reviews
I rate this movie 1 1/2 stars based on ACTING and the MOOD. Actors were surberb and the mood/theme of the movie was very chilling and beautiful.
However, this movie has almost no point at all. 10 minutes into the movie, I was already very confused as to what was going on. That never changed. There is almost no real plot or meaning to this movie at all. Nothing happens. Nothing scary happens. A lot is not even explained (what happened to Stanley? Was Andrew the one who opened the door?). I was very disappointed with this movie, and I wouldn't recommend it.
I feel like the movie insists upon itself, it's made to be this pseudo art form that isn't really about a story, it's about making a film that stands out, that is an open book. Don't get me wrong, I like a film that makes you think, that has a deeper meaning, but when that's all the film has to offer, no thank you.
As story telling goes, it's great, the acting is superb. Shult's lays out a great twist on the apocalyptic, end of world sub-genre, it just falls flat.There is good suspense and build up, just no follow up.
