LIGHTS OUT

David F. Sandberg, United States, 2016

Wow was this a disappointment. The original short film this is based on is a fantastic work of short terror (check it out here). While they got the original director/writer of the short, I was very suspicious how it was going to be worked into a full-length.

Here’s how they did it – repeat the same jump scares from the short film about a dozen times, add a lot of boring family melodrama, and finish it off with a confusing and over-explained mythos.
