The Hippodrome Cinema has the perfect fix for those with an eye for horror.
The Hipp will premiere one of the newest films to terrorize the world, “It Comes at Night,” on Saturday at 9:30 p.m. The post-apocalyptic film will run until June 29.
“It Comes at Night” is the second feature of award-winning filmmaker Trey Edward Shults. The story follows the life of Paul, played by Joel Edgerton, and his family after an unnatural being threatens the world, but that’s the least of their problems upon the arrival of a desperate family seeking refuge.
The Atlantic describes it best when it says it is “tightly focused on human torment.” With horrors and paranoia of the outside world creeping in, Paul discovers that protecting his family comes at a price: his soul.
The film will leave you wondering: Is the monster lurking in the darkness or is it hiding in the human heart? See the film Vulture says “is so thick with dread that nothing much needs to happen to make you sweat.”
