A stunning coming-of-age horror film.
When the Overlook Film Festival came to a close all the talk centered around It Comes at Night, the latest film from Krisha director Trey Edward Shults. The talk was justified because the film was making its world premiere as the secret screening of the festival’s closing night. It also helps that the film is great — read my review.
As great as that latest effort from Shults is, my best of the fest belongs to director Nicholas Verso and his absolutely wonderful coming of age horror film, Boys in the Trees.
It’s October 31, 1997, and a group of high school kids are getting ready to go out and celebrate their last Halloween before they have some big life choices to make. With high school graduation right around the corner they have to decide what the next chapter of their lives will be.
