“Religion, demonic possession, violence, racism and so much more make up The Devil Comes at Night. The possibility of an overly complex story could have presented itself at any time but didn’t. Straight forward from start to finish with the kinda burn that makes sense. For sure a film to keep on your radar.” 3 out of 5, Horror Movies Uncut
“A key excursion in the dark should be an uncomfortable sequence which puts the leads in danger, although that’s hampered by the screen turning pitch-black and making the scene unidentifiable. The violence can also feel jarringly edited, as though working around budgetary constraints in distracting ways. Central to the story is a good dynamic, brought alive by effective lead performances.” 3.5 out of 5, Nerdly
“It’s got some great tension and a sense of unease, of everything being slightly off-kilter. It’s also got an ending that just works. Unlike some films that simply don’t earn this sort of reveal, this film absolutely does. It’s a great “Ah-hah!” moment where lots of little details suddenly click into place. Hats off to everyone involved in this, from the director and writers to the actors.” 4 out of 5, Set the Tape
“Overall, The Devil Comes at Night is well directed and executed. It uses its setting effectively to create a good horror atmosphere. The acting is great for certain roles but a little lacking in some. The overall story is pretty well scripted with decent reveals and twists to make it intriguing.” Tranquil Dreams
