Quintessa

The story picks up where the last film left off with Prime heading to Cybertron to meet his maker–literally. He arrives on his dying world to meet Quintessa, a female transformer and his creator. With a slap she seemingly brainwashes him into helping her revive Cyberton at Earth’s expense. Back on Earth, war rages between the world’s militaries and Transformers as waves of them continue to come to the planet. All Transformers, including, the Autobots are deemed enemies. Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), continues to stand by his Autobot comrades, finding refuge in a junkyard on Indian territory by “hiding in plain sight.” However, uneasy alliances are formed when an ancient Cybertronian staff that grants its wielder immense power comes into play. Quintessa wishes to use it to restore Cybertron while Cade, Bumblebee, and a few ancient Transformers must come together to literally keep worlds from colliding!

Suspense and horror films usually make for a pretty awesome night. Especially when you combine it with a hot date!

However, some movies need a bit more backstory and resolution than others. Writer/director Trey Edward Shults’ It Comes At Night is definitely one of those films.

The film is set in what appears to be a world being ravaged by a pandemic that infects humans and animals alike. It centers on an interracial family consisting of a man, his wife, and son who have managed to survive in the mountains by sticking to a strict domestic routine, rationing their food, purifying their water, and never going out alone at night. Their haven is threatened, however, when a young family arrives seeking sanctuary. Herein lies a tale of suspense as issues of trust, family, love, and survival show the best and absolute worst of humanity when it comes to surviving what may very well be the end of the world.
