Consensus: It Comes at Night makes lethally effective use of its bare-bones trappings while proving once again that what's left unseen can be just as horrifying as anything on the screen.

A fairly straightforward post-apocalyptic story, tightly focused on human torment, but suffused with surprising, undeniably atmospheric sights and sounds.

It's not a sexy apocalypse, with a disease that transforms everyone into really cool zombies. It's just death. And it's not an easily managed "Doomsday Preppers" scenario solved by bulk foods from Jim Bakker infomercials. It's just doom.

Mines the same dour forebodings as Cormac McCarthy's 'The Road' ... a grim little cautionary fable that relies on mood, character development and performance, not 'Walking Dead' gore effects.

Edgerton gives another masterly minimalist performance, and Ejogo and Harrison are preternaturally alert.

Globe and Mail

Scored intensely and photographed vividly, the electric film imagines a small slice of doomsday with horrific believability.

In the absence of such answers, or the intimation of such answers, or even of characters in pursuit of answers, It Comes at Night begins to seem thin, a torment without purpose.
