It Comes at Night is releasing on Blu-ray and DVD this coming Tuesday, and Paste is pleased to bring you an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip focusing on Andrew, the youngest character in the film. Played by Griffin Robert Faulkner, Andrew plays a pivotal role in the plot, and the clip is an interesting look at the mindset behind his portrayal. And it doesn’t hurt that Faulkner is adorable.
The film was written and directed by Trey Edward Shults, who started work on it after his father died as a way of working through his grief. It certainly shows in the film: The finished product is less a conventional horror film and more a meditation on grief and the psychological pressure of survival. That’s not to say it doesn’t have tense moments right out of the thriller playbook, though—harsh choices have to be made, and some of them involve the adorable young Griffin.
Watch the clip above, and don’t forget to pick up It Comes At Night when it comes out on Blu-ray and DVD Sept. 12. You can read our review of the film here and find out where it landed on our list of the year’s best films so far right here.
