Scary yet Bad Ending
30 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Rarely can I handle shaky Cam Horror Flicks yet NIGHTLIGHT is 1) Well Acted 2)Suspenseful 3)Engaging

The Negetative: NO Happy or even Neutral Ending!

I do Not write Spoilers (and am Not going to write one now). Just say, if you want the Premise to be clear and have resolute at the end of your HORROR FILMS... NIGHTLIGHT will NOT provide that for you.

It's creepy scary, in an unfamiliar woods with only flashlights. The actors, dialogue, darkened setting, and night sounds provide most of the Chills. Not an Alls Well That Ends Well feel. Pit in stomach sort of film, I am glad I hadn't viewed at night.

Cannot say I recommend to anyone that's not a Hardcore Horror Fan. It's not visually "overtly graphic"... though it does contain some blood and gore. It's basically the knowledge that someone has perished, and the sound of that which is the creepy factor. So, watch if you root for "The Bad Guys" or want the unknown "The Things That Go Bump In The Night" to be victorious!
