Just a few days after our first look at the poster for Trey Edward Shults’ It Comes at Night, A24 (the studio behind Green Room and The Witch) have dropped the first trailer, and it provides the creepiest minute-and-a-half we’ve seen in a while.
In the upcoming chiller, “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 terrorises 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.”
Co-starring alongside Edgerton are Mad Max: Fury Road’s Riley Keough, Girls’ Christopher Abbott, The Purge: Anarchy’s Carmen Ejogo and feature newcomer Griffin Robert Faulkner.
The film is due to hit US cinemas on August 25th.
