Lights Out (2016)
Ohhhh so you picked darkness as your ally, you merely adopted the dark. I was born in it, molded by it, and I didn't see the light until I was already a man and it took nothing for me but BLINDING...
I turn on the lights will you die?
It would be extremely painful.
So what's the next step of your master plan?
Switching off these lights... with no SURVIVORS!
OK that's the last of my Bane jokes involving lights, I'm having fun with them actually, just to get my mind off this movie of how horrific it is. Now time to get my mind back to it.
Halloween's on the way, that's all I gotta say.
OK I know I haven't been reviewing horror movies, because I'm a wuss, I can't sit through a horror movie, s**t, I get too paranoid and too scared to even a watch a horror movie, I'm the guy who isn't scared at anything at all, aside from a mouse, horror films are a type I'm too afraid to even sit through, how do you guys even sit through them anyway without getting scared, it's really hard for me to not get scared.
I actually did watch the short film the film is based on, f**k that ending, it was a creepy short film.
Lights Out is essentially a horror film, turning the idea if you turn off the lights, you'll see this silhouette standing around whenever you switch off the lights.
It's best if you keep the lights on and buy as many light bulbs while you have to keep paying your electricity bills. Sadly, I don't think keeping the lights on will save your life.
This movie really set up the tension for me and honestly this film made me paranoid about turning off the lights in my room whenever I have to go to bed, despite saying to myself "it's just a movie" f**k those words don't even work.
This movie really worked, I liked the performances, especially the characters that could've been annoying and pointless, but they all served a purpose and they made this movie awesome.
Just a minor spoiler, what I did like is the cameo of the woman from the short film, who also happens to be the director's wife. I recognized her because I watched the short three times. Nice cameo and she did a brief re-enactment too, so that's what I love.
