First Trailer & Poster For Trey Edward Shults' IT COMES AT NIGHT

A first tease of the Krisha director's latest.

Trey Edward Shults blew us away last year with his directorial debut, Krisha, a family drama that plays like a horror movie, so we were very excited to learn his second movie would actually fall squarely into the horror genre. It Comes At Night stars Joel Edgerton, Riley Keough, Christopher Abbott, and Carmen Ejogo and opens in US cinemas August 25th. We're still awaiting news of a UK/ROI release but the film's US distributor A24 has dropped a teaser trailer to whet your appetite.

The official synopsis reads:

Imagine the end of the world— Now imagine something worse.

Award-winning filmmaker Trey Edward Shults follows his incredible debut feature Krisha with It Comes At Night, a horror film following a man (Joel Edgerton) as he is 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.
