Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes the world, a man has established a tenuous domestic order with his wife and son, but this will soon be put to test when a desperate young family arrives seeking refuge.
A very strange movie. Very eerie and unsettling. You never see what the IT of the title is and, like the characters in the story, we as viewers are kept in the dark about the larger context of what is going on. It’s like we are isolated in the house with the family. Unfortunately, the movie feels a bit too smart for its own good – a bit too “arty” – which detracts from the tension and suspense. This movie will not be for everyone – especially if you like a straightforward narrative that resolves everything by the time it’s finished.
