BWW Review: LIGHTS OUT at Warner Bros. Production
by Sayanvati Raysak - Aug 6, 2016

Everyone has at least some fear of the dark - no one walks into a completely dark room and thinks 'Oh good, I can't see anything and that's how I prefer it!' No, you fumble for a light switch ASAP, because even if you're not afraid of a creepy monster in there, you ARE afraid of walking into a desk and banging up your knee - it's still a fear! For many, they DO fear what could be lurking in the unknown and will only feel safe when the lights are turned on, so it's no surprise that Lights Out isn't the first nor will it be the last horror film to focus on a horror villain that sticks to the dark, where even a basic flashlight can keep you safe and ward the evil thing off. Darkness Falls is the obvious example, and I feared that this would be similarly underwhelming - luckily, that wasn't the case, and I suspect the movie will be a big draw, especially among those who hated The Witch for daring to be more subtle with its brand of terror. You want jump scares? You'll get your jump scares here - and they're actually pretty effective! (more...)
