Like a lot of horror movies, “Night Coming” opens up deadly. An older gentleman, who is clearly ill, says goodbye to his family and then gets shot in the head before he burns his body and torso. Did I mention that you all had gas masks? Confusion and loss dominate in a film designed to keep uncertain and emotionally raw.
The second film by Trey Edward Shults takes place last year in a world devoid of terrible disease, following the extraordinary breakthrough of Krisha; with a kind of thing that kills you in a day and eats the rescued people and does not trust anyone.
