People are freaking out about how scary this film trailer is

Seeing as it’s Halloween in nine months, what better way to celebrate early than watching a really scary horror film trailer? Well good news then, as the internet is presently abuzz with the sound of screams and pillows being put in front of faces, and it’s all over the preview for It Comes At Night

Not too much is known regarding what the film is actually about, and the trailer doesn’t reveal a lot, but considering the title, it could be about anything from werewolves to Diego Costa’s escaped evil twin. What we do know is that it involves two families stuck inside a house, while something terrifying lurks outside.

It comes from writer/director Trey Edward Shults, who you’ll be familiar with if you saw 2015’s Krisha, an uncomfortable family drama. Those lucky enough to have caught it – a terrifying exploration of a family gathering upended by a self-destructive woman – then you’ll know you’re in good hands when it comes to portraying fraught familial relationships. To make a film that is essentially about someone cooking a turkey and make it as tense as it is; well, that’s quite the feat.

Time will tell if the scares in his new film mix well with the charged drama of his previous, but either way, it’ll hopefully live up to the moody atmosphere of the trailer, which also raises neck hair with a pulsating score.

Going for full on horror, he’s brought a few big names along for the ride; namely Joel Edgerton and Riley Keough. And a dog. A dog is always a good inclusion in a horror movie - they always know what’s up. And they come in handy if the thing that comes at night is a postman.

Anyway, check out the trailer above, then admire how scary this poster is below:
