'Lights Out' is more than just a horror movie - but only if you want it to be

22 July 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

From its brilliantly effective trailers, Lights Out -- the new horror film from first-time feature director David F. Sandberg -- comes across as your standard-issue fright fest: supernatural spook, family in peril, jump scares from wall to wall. And yet the film plumbs deeper waters than expected through the character of Sophie (Maria Bello) and her shadow-dwelling "friend" Diana, who mutually represent a surprisingly potent, and unusually perceptive, metaphor about mental illness and its capacity to wreak havoc on generations of families. For a genre not historically known for its sensitive portrayals of psychological disorders, that counts as something of a minor triumph, and the filmmakers deserve credit for bringing added heft to what could have easily been a surface-level scare machine. The feature is a long way from Sandberg's original short film of the same name, which hit YouTube in 2014 and subsequently went viral before capturing the attention of producer Lawrence Grey, »

Lights Out Reinvents Classic Horror in a Fresh Way

21 July 2016 12:58 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One thing I always look forward to when going to any horror movie, is seeing.... well, mostly hearing, how the audience reacts. While I love movies like The Witch, which is so engrossing and intense that you can hear a pin drop in the theater, I really adore movies that scare the s--t out of people, to the point where I can hear their reactions. For me, the more unusual and natural the reactions are a sign that this particular movie is quite effective, and the reactions I heard during Lights Out made it so much more fun, for me anyway. I'm not sure how much fun it was for the woman, who let out piercing shrieks every time a jump-scare moment happened and would rapidly stomp her feet on the ground like Thumper, but it was just one of many reasons why I loved Lights Out.

Interview: Writer Eric Heisserer on His Approach to Lights Out and Meeting Modern Horror Fans’ Expectations

7 July 2016 4:26 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In just six or so years, writer Eric Heisserer has been involved with several high-profile horror projects, including Final Destination 5, The Thing (2011), and even the ill-fated remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street (more on that later), but it’s his latest script for David Sandberg’s Lights Out that is undoubtedly his best work thus far in his career.

A thoughtful examination of fear and mental illness that still manages to have a bit of a playful streak to it as well, Lights Out is an expanded take on Sandberg’s original short film from a few years back that will undoubtedly give viewers many new reasons to be afraid of the dark. It stars Maria Bello as Sophie, a mother suffering from depression, whose “special friend” Diana can only travel within the confines of total darkness and is fixated on having Sophie all to herself. Of course, »

Keep The Lights When You Watch The Terrifying New Trailer For Lights Out

From producer James Wan (“The Conjuring”) comes a tale of an unknown terror that lurks in the dark.

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.

But this time, as Rebecca gets closer to unlocking the truth, there is no denying that all their lives are in danger…once the lights go out.

Check out the creepy and unsettling trailer for Lights Out.

The film stars Teresa Palmer (“Triple 9”) as Rebecca; Gabriel Bateman (“Annabelle”) as Martin; Billy Burke (the “Twilight” franchise) as Martin’s father, Paul; Alexander Dipersia (“Forever”) as Rebecca’s boyfriend, »

Lights Out Trailer #2 Brings Your Worst Childhood Fears to Life

24 June 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, filmmaker James Wan returned to the horror genre with his hit sequel The Conjuring 2, which has done quite well at the box office over the past few weeks. Next month, the filmmaker produces what could be one of the scariest movies this summer with Lights Out, hitting theaters July 22. To get fans ready for this horror-thriller, Warner Bros. has released the second terrifying trailer.

The first trailer debuted back in March, but we haven't heard much about this thriller since then. Warner Bros. did promote this movie during its CinemaCon presentation in April. With the success of James Wan's The Conjuring 2, it could be a good omen for Lights Out, although it will face quite the heavy hitter when it arrives in theaters July 22, going up against Paramount's Star Trek Beyond. We'll have to wait and see if the horror hounds or the sci-fi set will claim that weekend. »

Is Final Destination 6 Shooting This Year?

4 May 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

What is going on with the Final Destination franchise? And is Final Destination 6 happening, as one of its stars seems to believe? We're not sure, but recent rumors don't sound like they're going to pan out. Not yet, anyway. The only thing that is known for certain is that this extremely popular horror franchise is not dead yet. Not by a long shot.

But it's unlikely that Final Destination 6 will begin prepping this August. The most consistent element in the series besides gruesome death has always been Tony Todd, who plays the small role of Bludworth in each installment. Usually he comes warning of death. This time, the mortician arrived at the recent Texas Frightmare event warning that the Grim Reaper is ready to exact his revenge once again. According to the actor, he will definitely be returning in Final Destination 6. He went onto claim that the horror sequel will begin pre-production in late August, »

First Lights Out trailer warns you not to turn off the lights

26 March 2016 4:33 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Based on a 2013 David F. Sandberg-directed short, the first trailer for Lights Out, a new Warner Bros. horror film, has been released. Insidious director James Wan, who serves as a producer on the project, unveiled the terrifying trailer at WonderCon in Los Angeles. Shortly after, the first poster for the film hit the web as well. To avoid any added terror, be sure not to watch the footage below with the lights turned off…

The trailer, above all else, showcases the film’s unique premise and gives the viewer a glimpse at some of the frightening sequences they can expect from the film. The central idea of the film is sure to strike a chord with any viewers who have even a slight fear of the dark, which may ultimately make it an effectively scary summer horror flick in the same vein as The Conjuring.

With Jgl out, this is the Sandman we want to see

7 March 2016 3:17 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has backed out the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman due to creative differences. As previously reported, the actor made the announcement via his Facebook page saying, "I came to realize that the folks at New Line and I just don't see eye to eye on what makes Sandman special, and what a film adaptation could/should be. So unfortunately, I decided to remove myself from the project." Gordon-Levitt made the decision one day after The Hollywood Reporter revealed that horror writer Eric Heisserer (Final Destination 5, the 2011 The Thing remake) had been tapped by New Line to write the script. Though the project is moving ahead, here, Roth Cornet and Donna Dickens pitch the perfect way to adapt Gaiman's gorgeous series. Spoiler alert: It’s not as a film.
