Describing 

It Comes at Night

, a tense horror film from writer/director Trey Edward Shults, Carlos Aguilar says, "The film can be interpreted as a genre piece that thrives simply on jump scares, mysterious events and [maybe] revelatory plot twists, yet on close inspection these conventions reveal themselves as a vehicle to address much more humanistic concerns. Fear is a virus with no prescribed cure and, as we learn in Shults' new compelling family drama, is heightened by isolation."

Shutls tells Aguilar

, "I think I leave things unanswered because that's what this story is, and that’s what the core of the movie is about. I'm sure a lot of people are going to be frustrated by it, but what I tell people when I talk about the movie is, just come at it with an open mind.

"It's not a conventional horror film, but there's a lot of thought and care put into this, and if something's not what you expect, it’s not because we’re being lazy. There’s a reason we're doing that. The film was designed with an openness, so that if you like or you do'’t like, if you see it again or just think about it, it doesn't give you all the answers and I hope it sticks with you.

"I hope it means different things to different people. My favorite idea is that it just seeps into you, and you have to think about it for a while, and either have a conversation with it, or it just sticks on your mind. That would be amazing."
