Is It Comes at Night actually scary?

There are a lot of zombie films or movies where a society-ending pandemic breaks out for viewers to enjoy, but any cannibal corpse fanatic would discover it would be difficult to find one that not only stands out amongst the rest of the genre as an impressive approach to telling the overly-used concept and provide an uneasy, nerve-racking experience from start fo finish.

A24 has a pretty solid reputation when it comes to providing a nightmare-inducing experience for audiences that are at there core going for substance over style. The 2017 critically acclaimed gem It Comes At Night is a very enthralling take on survival and vividly showcases that the real horror that results from a nasty outbreak is the depths people will go to protect the ones they love.

The story highlights the paranoia and fears those trying to survive who have lost all hope and are forced only top concern themselves with their safety over their humanity.  It Comes At Night is probably one of the best-kept secrets on Netflix, and once subscribers check it out, they’ll be eerily curious as to how they could have missed such a complexing tale of chilling fear. The cast is superb, sporting the likes of Carmen Ejogo, Riley Keough, Joel Edgerton, Christopher Abbott, and Kelvin Harris and is directed by Waves helmer Trey Edward Shultz.
