House Rule #1: The red door stays locked at all times.
A24 (The Witch, Green Room) has been doing a great job marketing It Comes at Night without revealing much about it, which is refreshing to see in a landscape so dominated by endless trailers that spoil every single moment of an upcoming movie. Of course, we’ve come to expect nothing but excellence from A24, so we can’t say that we’re surprised.
A new poster arrives for the film today, and it’s as mysterious as the previous one. A man is approaching a red door, and we’ve got a feeling that what lies beyond is the stuff of nightmares.
Check it out below, along with the teaser.
In Trey Edward Shults’ film:
A man (Joel Edgerton) learns that the evil stalking his family home may be only a prelude to horrors that come from within.
Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes the world, the tenuous domestic order he has established with his wife and son is put to the ultimate test with the arrival of a desperate young family seeking refuge.
Despite the best intentions of both families, paranoia and mistrust boil over as the horrors outside creep ever-closer, awakening something hidden and monstrous within him as he learns that the protection of his family comes at the cost of his soul.
Riley Keough, Carmen Ejogo, Christopher Abbot, and Kelvin Harrison Jr. also star.
