What a total waste of time. The movie made no sense at all, has no plot to it. I was kept waiting for them to tell me what this family was afraid of but was never told and then it's the end.

I'm just glad I didn't pay to watch it.

It Comes at Night was an excellent film that shows the disturbing effects of deep rooted paranoia and fear. Just how animalistic our nature really is.

Totally rubbish, at first I thought its is a monster-post-apocalyptic movie with all these intense storyline and CG. the movie mostly spent time on Joel Edgerton's family and their reaction and interaction after and with other family, For the last 30 minutes, the horror part( not really that scary) that the other family starts to change and sick. The ending is so simple and blody. Overall, this movie is not really a horror movie but a walking-dead that kind of movie ( TWD is much better), it is about humanity , how far will people go for the food and survival, but really a lot of unessacary blood and violence. It is Joel Edgerton worst movie beside The Gift. 0.5 is already a mercy. Don't waste your time on "this".

Horrible show

This movie made no sense. I don't recommend it. People's paranoia bring out the worst in them. They become soulless.

This is not really a horror film so don't be disappointed if this is your expectation.

Disappointing film! Atmospheric and some very good acting but the film doesn't really go anywhere!

We shut it off after 20 minutes ... & I can’t remember the last time we did that ...

To echo what others have said, it was marketed as a horror movie and it seems like it's going to be a horror movie, but it's not really. I'd call it more an end of the world thriller, but, despite some tension and a few intense scenes, it's not particularly thrilling. In fact, it's a bit boring in parts. A mysterious plague or illness or something (never made clear) has infected humanity and a family is hiding out in a boarded up house in the woods. Everything is okay (Well, except for grandpa.) until a man breaks in, and they decide to take him and his family in. Then it becomes more of a psychological thriller. You keep expecting more to happen. The acting (Joel Edgerton, Carmen EJogo, Riley "Elvis was my grandpa" Keough) is good, the music and lighting is effective, but it is never really that compelling. The ending is disappointing too. A decent effort, but it could've been much better. You might also check out "Don't Breathe."
