Storyline

For years, the Covington forest has been shrouded in mystery, with a dark past as a final destination for troubled youths. Undeterred by the news of a classmate who recently took his life in those woods, five teens journey into the forest for an evening of flashlight games and ghost stories. But their plans go awry when the friends awaken a demonic presence, an unseen evil that will seize upon their deepest fears-and plunge them into a nightmare of absolute terror. Written by Lionsgate

Scariest Movie I've Ever Seen
27 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

I'm not one of those, whatchamacallit, lightweights. I am a huge fan of horror films in general, own over 200 horror movies, have seen countless thousands of films, and I have to say Nightlight is by far the scariest move I have ever seen. After watching it twice now (iTunes 24 hour rental system is awesome), I have to say this film defines horror perfection.

To be specific, Nightlight does not fall for the average modern day horror clichés. There is no found footage, no research at a library, no complex CGI monsters, no "oh my I can't get any cell phone service!" and everything takes place during one creepy night. Nightlight preys on your fear of the unknown to deliver a true sense of hopelessness.
