    It Comes at Night

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    ***This maybe contains vague spoilers??***

    Out of the five people I was viewing with, I think I'm the only one who really really liked this film, so I'm thinking it's not for everyone. If you didn't read any press or watch any trailers beforehand you'll have a better movie experience. You can't have the expectation that you are going in to see a "traditional" horror flick. If you have that, you will be disappointed.

    God what a treat to see this great story unfold. And Joaquin Phoenix was amazing. So far, one of the best films I've seen this year. I loved the soundtrack to boot. So happy I got to see this on 70 mm at Alamo Drafthouse as well. Beautiful!

    It's a brave new world filled with webcams, and Instagram filters, and this movie made me happy I did not have to deal with either during that murky coming of age timeframe.

    I loved seeing this during SXSW, but at a satellite venue outside of the main Fest area. Felt even more true somehow outside of "the bubble."

    Some twists that I don't really want to give away, but just know that what could have been exploitive is actually handled with care and in a way that felt appropriate. Casting is excellent overall and with Nichole Bloom and Pat Healy especially.

    Fest fave so far!
