It Comes at Night / Directed by Trey Edward Shults

Typically, Bushwick Film Fest prides itself in being fearless, and would never ever ever admit to getting scared, but, have you seen... It Comes at Night? Cause this film—Trey Edward Shults’ follow up to his highly successful indie debut, Krisha—has us suffering from all types of nightmares. The director takes a big concept (the apocalypse) but keeps the story (about a family) and the scale, micro. No doubt, this intimate A24 movie might cause you some temporary psychological damage and leave you feeling like the future ahead, is more backward than forwards, but dare we say that the future of filmmaking, with Shults in it, is a silver lining worth feeling hopeful about.
