    Lights Out (2016)



    Feature film that's based on the horror short with the same name

    When Rebecca left home, she thought she left her childhood fears behind. Growing up, she was never really sure of what was and wasn’t real when the lights went out…and now her little brother, Martin, is experiencing the same unexplained and terrifying events that had once tested her sanity and threatened her safety. A frightening entity with a mysterious attachment to their mother, Sophie, has reemerged.

    Wan is horror gold IMO. One of the few current, mainstream peeps in the business within this genre that truly gets it. Although he did not direct this it has his style and influence.

    Well the movie is pretty good. I feel as though it outstayed its welcome a bit and the story itself has some questionable details I'll leave out. It's filmed quite well and has some good performances for characters that are like cardboard. There are the staple, PG-13 ooga booga scares here but nothing that lingers, for me there was no veil of tension or dread just scene-hopping and waiting for the next time a CGI something will jump out at you. Worth a watch, not sure to drop money for the theater but everyone has their preferences and there isn't anything else out by the time this gets released to appeal with this genre.

    Yeah, from what I know about it thus far there were previous test screenings that had such positive feedback they moved it up to a Summer release.
    Trying to catch that Conjuring lightning in a bottle, especially with Wan's name attached to it. It's not bad...just feels a lot like been there done that.

    Caught another trailer for this with The Purge: Election Year. It looks pretty good...I'll probably catch it at the theater.

    Caught the movie earlier and liked it. Really good pacing and some good scares. The story is pretty straightforward and doesn't try to overcomplicate itself. I enjoyed the simplicity of it, especially the end. Should have a more detailed review soon

    I thought it was good but it REALLY had to add some unnecessary shit just to make 80 minutes. To me it seemed like they had a hard time making this a feature length film.

    The story felt a bit slapped together as it really is an afterthought to make a film like this from a 3 minute short.
    Too reliant on jump scares (overly based on sound), lights on, lights off, been there...done that, and some hokey dialogue. It's good but nothing I would actually recommend, certainly not something to pay theater admission for.
    The short is better

    I watched it and was a little disappointed. I actually lost interest somewhere. I'm going to give it another shot though before I make a final conclusion
