In the new trailer for “It Comes At Night,” Joel Edgerton’s protective domestic order is put to the test when a new family seeks refuge from the unnatural threat that terrorizes the world — the thing that Edgerton has built a desolate home to fight against.
“I just want to talk, and I want honest answers. Do you have any idea what’s going on out there?” Edgerton, who plays Paul, asks a man he finds out in the woods.
In the trailer, we see Paul’s fortress of a home, which can only be accessed through a red door that must always stay locked; Paul is the only one who holds the key.
“We never go out at night,” he tells his family and his visitors at the dinner table.
Soon, both families question each other’s honesty after someone leaves the door open.
“It Comes At Night” stars Kelvin Harrison Jr., Carmen Ejogo, Christopher Abbott and Riley Keough. Trey Edward Shults, the director or 2015’s indie hit “Krisha,” wrote and directed.
The horror premiered at the Overlook Film Festival over the weekend and garnered some rave reviews. A24 opens it June 9.
