Our take

A holiday reunion takes an eerie turn in this gripping debut from Tony-winning writer-director Stephen Karam. With a stellar ensemble that includes Richard Jenkins, Amy Schumer and Steven Yeun, The Humans cuts a jagged path through its fractious family drama before beginning its descent into terror.
