If anyone ever finds out where you can go to get refunds on the time spent watching pointless movies, please let me know. This film will be top and centre on my returns form. 

The plot to It Comes At Night is painfully dull and has no pay off. There are several moments throughout the film where you think ‘this is it, this is what will make the entire film worth sitting through’. Nope. Nein. Nyet. No.

The characters are also so painful and completely uninteresting. There’s no real backstory given to any of them, but there’s also no real personality to make up for it. 

To be honest, I only watched It Comes At Night because it is on a list of horror movies from a challenge that a friend sent me. There were only eight movies on the list that I hadn’t seen, so I thought I should rectify that. Given that the last film I watched that came from that list was The Witch, I’m beginning to seriously question my life choices. I cannot in good conscience recommend this film to anyone.


“If you’re lying to me, I will kill you. No doubt about it.”

    1. If you didn’t like I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House, then I think that’s the best course of action. It Comes At Night has even less of a point and a longer run time.
