"Well, if she's not a ghost then what is she?"Another low-budget fright film from Australian producer James Wan, 2016's Lights Out is one of the superior horror offerings of the year, and that's not simply by default. This feature debut for filmmaker David F. Sandberg is a slick, taut, well-made thriller featuring likeable characters who don't act like complete idiots, and it doesn't insult audien... read more

Notes:
*I watched the short before this and it was okay so I was curious how they would do with a feature length.
*The trailer looked like fun as I have a guilty pleasure for the movies Darkness Falls as well as Vanishing on 7th Street which both deal with this sort of theme.
*Eric Heisserer has actually done a few movies almost all are quite good with the exception of the Nightm... read more

"Re-watch - Oct. 17th I picked up a copy of Lights Out on the cheap last month, mainly so I could watch it with my daughter. This one was creepy enough for her, & she said the use of sound scared her more than the visuals. That led to a discussion about how sound is key in horror. I liked it as much as I did the last time I watched it, & will likely revisit it every several years. Just a thought: For those keeping score, this was the 21st movie I watched during my vacation. I'd say I've made th"

"Okay, so we all know by know how a broken home can start when dad, as the head of the household, decides to leave mom. But when mom starts to shows signs that she not all together "up there", then the home gets even more broken. And when an old family friend decides to overstay her welcome, even when she's dead, then the family situation is more than just broken... now it's just plain "lights out". "

"Yo pensaba en esta pelicula como un gran avance en el género antes de verla pero la verdad no esta nada muy allá, lo único que tiene es su originalidad porque pierde una hora en una investigación que prácticamente no lleva a nada en cuanto a los personajes (Solo sirve para que el espectador sepa donde esta) donde solo hay unos cuantos sustos y después una media hora pausada donde se resuelve el conflicto sin mas lo que hace que se sienta un poco vacía la historia, y su propias reglas no l"
