To say that A24 has been on a roll would be an understatement. Last year, they released what amounted to enough greatness to fill many of our best of the year picks, including two of the best horror movies of the decade with The Witch and Green Room. A24 looks to continue thier tradition of exceptional horror films with release of It Comes at Night, directed by Trey Edward Shults, who brought us last year’s Krisha.
Check out the official plot synopsis below:
A man (Joel Edgerton) learns that the evil stalking his family home may be only a prelude to horrors that come from within.
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.
Besides the always great Edgerton, the cast also consists of Carmen Ejogo, Christopher Abbot, and Riley Keough. This looking like it’s going to be a deeply unsettling and unique film, one that you’re guarenteed to hear a lot about from us upon its release.
It Comes at Night comes to threaters on August 25th, 2017.
