It Comes at Night
First screened in June 2017
Director: Trey Edward Shults. Cast: Kelvin Harrison Jr., Joel Edgerton, Christopher Abbott, Carmen Ejogo, Riley Keough, David Pendleton, Griffin Robert Faulkner. Screenplay: Trey Edward Shults.

Twitter Capsule: As in Krisha, Shults reveals a gift for conjuring tension in odd ways, but they don't cohere and seem overworked.

VOR:   The suspense builds proficiently enough that the filmmaking rates. But a dozen recent movies share similar stakes, style, and premises.
