“One of the terrifying aspects of the movie is people and what they can do to each other; because its more than a ghost it’s more than an alien, because its people you pass everyday on the street.” – Joel Edgerton

They seek shelter with a family (Joel Edgerton, Carmen Ejogo, Kelvin Harrison Jr.) in the middle of the woods.
