IT COMES AT NIGHT 2

“Who will survive and what will be left of them?” is the famous tagline of 1974’s “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.” It’s also a fitting summation of “It Comes at Night,” the new film from the writer/director of “Krisha,” Trey Edward Shults. While lacking overt scares, the feature does successfully chart the mental and physical health of those caught in an inescapable crisis, inspecting the wear and tear of lives lived in perpetual paranoia. “It Comes at Night” is being marketed as a horror effort, which is incorrect. It’s not grotesque with violence, but purposeful, detailing a world gone mad from the perspective of those barely hanging on.
