“It Comes at Night” quickly became one of the year’s most anticipated genre films after the release of its dense and claustrophobic teaser trailer. But now a new full trailer further shows the scope of this apocalyptic thriller, which puts two families together during a crisis, and soon pits them against each other.
The film, which stars a small cast including Joel Edgerton, Christopher Abbott, Riley Keough, Kelvin Harrison Jr., and Carmen Ejogo, is the second from “Krisha” helmer Trey Edward Shults. The plot follows two patriarchs, played by Edgerton and Abbott, who will do whatever it takes to save their wives and children from the terrors lurking outside.
Edgerton recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about his hope that films like “It Comes at Night” will help return prestige to the horror genre.
“Let’s be honest, horror movies have a bad rap,” he said. “It’s up to movies like ‘Get Out’ and ‘It Follows’ — and this movie, I hope — to [remove] the stigma of what I refer to as the ‘blood porn’ nature of horror. Horror films can be incredibly intelligent.”
