It Comes at Night is a psychological horror film being released on June 9, 2017. From the looks of the trailer, one family gives refuge to another family in a cabin somewhere out in the wilderness. There’s a red door that’s supposed to stay locked at all times. Any activities that need to be done, should be done in the day time. They are all deathly afraid of the night. One night, the red door is wide open. They keep saying the work “sick” after, so we’re assuming it’s a kind of virus that turns people into monsters but the source only comes at night. It’s pretty daunting.
The poster, designed by InSync Plus, is meant to make you feel uneasy and afraid of the dark. It has a white dog with its back facing you, looking towards a pitch black scene. Although the contrast is relaxing, the fact that the dog is looking into the dark means there’s something there, even if you can’t see it. It’s especially unsettling because dogs are known to be able to see ghosts, if that’s what’s coming.
It Comes at Night hits theaters on June 9, 2017.
