It Comes at Night isn’t a game changer of a horror film, but it’s a decent enough horror film that at times threatens to be great. While that promise feels lacking in the end, it’s a rare unsettling end of the world thriller that does exactly what it is supposed to do. It forces you to think.

When it sticks to what it’s supposed to be doing, ‘Life’ is genuinely nerve-wracking. The problem is it constantly wants to pretend its something its not and every time the film spins off into an homage of the better films it was inspired by, you’ll feel like you should probably be watching ‘Alien’ or ’2001′ instead.
