| Could Have Been Better and Better
Paul (Joel Edgerton), his wife Sarah (Carmen Ejogo), their seventeen year-old son Travis (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) and his grandfather Bud (David Pendleton) live a reclusive life in an isolated cabin in the woods. When Bud contracts a mysterious disease, the family is forced to put him down and burn his body. During the night, an invader breaks in their house and they dominate the man and leave him tied to a tree in quarantine to know whether he is sick or not. A couple of days later, they find the stranger is healthy and he tells that his name is Will (Christopher Abbott). He explains that he left his wife Kim (Riley Keough) and their little son Andrew (Griffin Robert Faulkner) in an abandoned house to seek for water and food. Paul and Sarah invite him to bring his wife and son to live with them so that they could protect each other. On the arrival, Paul explains the rules of his house to the couple and they share the labor and supplies. But paranoia about disease and the outside menace arrive in the house affecting the lives of the two families.

"It Comes at Night" is a thriller with promising beginning and deceptive conclusion. The plot is developed at a slow pace creating tension, including sexual, in the viewer that waits to see those that come at night. Unfortunately nothing but a dramatic paranoia happens disappointing everyone that was expecting a plot point or a big surprise in the end. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Ao Cair da Noite" ("At the Twilight")
