A very low budget, ordinary film, and not a scary thriller with no special effects. I don't know what their, title: " it comes at night", symbolizes or portrays in this movie? which has no meaning??? which is why I picked it to view in the first place - thinking it was about an evil, fun monster which attacks at night? :) lol... :0
I actually like some of the other exciting 'Zombie-movies', a lot better which gives you a bang for your buck ! :) This movie is just a simple story about folks getting 'ill' or sick from a plague or some unknown virus attack. Kinda stupid?

Highly tense. A more realistic depiction of life after an apocalyptic event than “A Quiet Place”, which got laughably unrealistic (according to the universe that writer/director set up) in its second half.

It comes at night is an extremely beautiful film that is riveting and makes the viewer think to understand the events that occur, I would definitely recommend not to watch the trailer as it is rather deceiving, even the title implies that there is a monster or some being in the movie but the "IT" is fear itself. There are many details that one should pay attention to understand this movie. The actors do an amazing job of adding fear and suspense, though not a traditional horror it may seem like it since it follows a family that live in seclusion out of fear for the virus that is outside, the film definitely starts bleak and ends even bleaker. Definitely enter this film with an open mind and prepare for a movie that will stay in you weeks after watching it. 4/5 Stars. @TheCollector of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Not your typical "horror" flick. If you're expecting to see monsters, aliens, blood and guts, or extreme violence with explosions, this is not the movie for you. It's more like the old Twilight Zone series (which we loved) that slowly builds to a surprising ending with powerful social commentary. If that's more your thing, we definitely recommend "It Comes At Night".

So what was the point of this? A rather boring horror/thriller film not really worth the time.

Interesting movie. Held my attention and had its moments but leaves allot of unanswered and unresolved questions.

A good movie. Not of the mindless style implied by the corny title (maybe some marketing executive is to blame for that). You actually have to watch and pay attention.

A complete waste of time. No point to it. Just unpleasantness. Not much of a story. Everyone dies for no good reason. You keep waiting for it to get good and then it abruptly ends.

It Comes At Night is a horror film that plays with your expectations. If you come into the film expecting what the trailer sets up, that will not be the movie you watch. That said, I adore this film. It's amazingly atmospheric in a way that's unrelenting. Also, it has my favorite goat actor in all of cinema. That's right. Goat actor. If you ever watched The Witch, keep your eye out for a Black Phillip cameo. If you want jump scares, this is not your movie. If you want a movie that's tense, beautifully shot, and incredibly stressful, give it a watch.
