Twitter is trying to figure out whether this is the scariest movie of 2017 or not

If you’re feeling like the actual world is a scary place right now, maybe you’re interested in some escapism through movies. If that’s the case, you might want to steer clear of It Comes At Night, a horror film that’s brought out some intense debate on Twitter — because, of course!


There are so many mixed, but very strong, feelings about the film. From being terrified and shocked to saying it’s the worst movie ever, this film seems to be pretty divisive. Here’s a quick summary of what it’s about:

"Secure within a desolate home with his vigilant, protective, and heavily armed parents (Joel Edgerton and Carmen Ejogo), 17-year-old Travis (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) navigates fear, grief, and paranoia amid scarce resources as a desperate young couple (Christopher Abbott and Riley Keough) seeks refuge in his family home with their young child."

Ok, so now let’s check in on the very intense Twitter discussions about the film because no one can seem to agree on anything. Some people seem to think it’s a great horror film… false

false false

…while others feel almost exactly the opposite and aren’t afraid to tell everyone about it. false

So the reviews are…mixed. If you’re intrigued, watch the trailer (if you dare).

And check out It Comes At Night (in theaters) so you too can jump in on the Twitter conversation.
