‘Assassin’s Creed Origins’ at E3 2017 – Should we Be Excited?
June 20, 2017

This week Goomba Stomps indie games editor Katrina Lind joins us to discuss It Comes at Night, Trey Edward Shults’s sophomore effort. Shults’s debut film was 2015’s Krisha, a critically acclaimed, micro-budgeted family drama that played like an intense horror movie. Much like Krisha, It Comes at Night is an intimate, domestic tale that generates suspense by focusing in on the littlest details, like an imminent red door. After which we finally get our chance to review writer-director Robert Eggers’ accomplished feature-length debut The Witch, a deeply unsettling exercise in slow-building horror that landed on our list of the best films of 2016. All this and more.
