Director: Trey Edwards Shults.
Starring: Joel Edgerton, Christopher Abbott, Carmen Ejogo. USA 2017. 92 mins.

The highly contagious ‘Sickness’ has decimated the population. Paul (Edgerton, Black Mass), his wife (Ejogo, Selma) and her watchful son (Kelvin Harrison Jnr), who is tormented by nightmares, have barricaded themselves in. They leave their fortress wearing only gloves and gasmasks. But when an intruder (Abbot) breaks in begging for food and water for his wife and child, the two families forge an uneasy alliance. However, when one of their number exhibits early signs of the Sickness, paranoia and mistrust boil over, and, as the evil outside creeps ever closer, Paul ultimately learns that the protection of his family comes at the cost of his soul. Shot in low, natural light, Shults’s psychological thriller has an eerie quality which perfectly abets the edgy anxiety of the relationships and a brooding intensity punctuated by brutal violence.
