It’s easy to roll your eyes at movie trailers, to scoff at how people are sometimes more obsessed with film marketing than films themselves. On some days, I agree. On other days, the It Comes at Night trailer arrives and reminds me that there’s a genuine art to cutting a great movie trailer and that the best of the bunch can evoke a film’s atmosphere without falling into the trap of summarizing the entire movie in two minutes.
And the arrival of the It Comes at Night trailer serves as a reminder that Trey Edward Shults, the director of the critically acclaimed Krisha, has gone and made a horror movie starring Joel Edgerton for his sophomore feature and that is very, very interesting.
