It Comes at Night ★★★½

Some vague horror trappings scarcely disguise what is essentially a chamber drama. This story of a family trapped together under duress shares a source of tension with Krisha, Shults’ debut. Still, his stylistic approach is thankfully more measured this time out. Though the characters are only vaguely sketched (especially when compared to those in the similar Z for Zachariah), the film’s unremittingly bleak worldview helps to fill in most of the gaps.
