    Definitely marketed incorrectly. Hell, if I had only seen the first trailer I would have thought it was a ghost story. With that said, I enjoyed this a fair amount. Not a horror movie though. I'd liken it to The Road.

    Some old guy in our theater was super bummed this wasn't the horror movie he expected. At one point he very loudly goes, "It's got to get scary one of these days!" then kind of looked around waiting for a response.

    Yeah I didn't care for this too much. There didn't really seem to be a point or motive to the film. Not only was it not very scary, but I didn't even think it was that suspenseful. I kept thinking they were going touch back on Will and his family not being who they said they were. Also I felt at some point we were going to see whatever was supposed to come at night. Did anything get a hold of the dog? I don't think anyone in my theater actually believed it was over when it ended.

    I hate when a movie is over and it feels abrupt, so you can hear everyone murmuring, "That was stupid." You just feel the dissatisfaction in the room. It brings you down even more.

    I thought it was okay. It just feels like this has been done before, and I agree about the bad title.

    The cinemascore was a D. Damn that's low

    But that excites me more

    Yeah it sounds cool and spooky, but that's about the only purpose it serves.

    Technically, the disease came at night...and that's what It was.

    Ok, that makes sense considering they wore the masks at night but not during the day. Now I'm reminded of The Happening. Still hate this, needed more exposition or action.

    no, man...what?

    They wore the masks and gloves during the day too. I meant that Travis' dream finally caused him to actually sleepwalk outside to become infected by the dog. The disease came to them at night.

    For anyone else reading this, It Comes at Night is not like The Happening at all. So disregard that please.

    I saw them wear masks during the day, too. Pretty much whenever they thought they might come in contact with someone infected. I never heard them say anything about "it" coming at night. But if they did, it would definitely substantiate the title.

    so it coming at night is only referring to the time of day it came to their family in particular.

    Travis' dreams were very obvious throughout the film. Every time he went to sleep, we knew he was going to be having another nightmare after the first one was shown. In the end, it was shown that he actually opened the door and most likely made contact with the sick dog.

    yes, that's what I'm saying

    His dreams/sleep had a large impact on the story. He opened the door when he was sleepwalking. Andrew did not open the door and I actually don't think he was sick either.

    My memory isn't great, but there was a scene in which they're cutting fire wood and they aren't wearing masks.

    Yeah, that happened because there wasn't a threat of infection around.

    It isn't a bad film by any means. I just didn't like any of the characters.

    I thought Andrew was sick because they kept telling him to keep his eyes closed. I totally missed that Travis' dream was him sleepwalking and opening the door. I just took it that Andrew did open it.
    I didn't hate this as much as everyone else and I'd say it's worth it to watch in the theater.

    It is technically well made. I haven't read the positive reviews, but I'd really like to know if people actually thought the story was interesting.

    It reminded me of The Village, in a way.
