Joel Edgerton welcomes a family of strangers into his cabin in the woods, but all is not what it seems in the new trailer for the thriller “It Comes At Night”.
The buzz-worthy trailer for “It Comes At Night” perfectly teases the invisible and omnipresent threat to Edgerton and his guests when an intruder threatens his family’s remote hideaway deep in the woods, a safe haven from a civilization-ending pandemic wreaking havoc on society. With gas masks and mysterious doors that need to be locked when the sun sets, the fear is real for Edgerton and co.
“We never go out at night”, Edgerton’s character Paul says ominously in the video, which leaves audiences questioning exactly what – or whom – the titular “It” is, adding a layer of mystery to the creepy new movie. As the paranoia and tension reach extremes, audiences will be left to wonder whether the external threat to society is greater than what is lurking within the family and their surroundings.
Co-starring Riley Keough, Christopher Abbott, Kelvin Harrison, Jr. and Carmen Ejogo, “It Comes At Night” earned raves when it premiered last week at the inaugural Overlook Film Festival. The newly founded festival screens horror and thriller films to genre fans at the iconic Timberline Hotel, the hotel famously used in the opening scenes of Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining”.
“It Comes At Night” opens in theatres on June 9.
