Storyline

When you are all alone in a small dark room without a single beam of light to pierce through the palpable blackness, what do you fear the most? Is it the temporary blindness that sends shivers down your spine or does a more crippling and maddening fear possess you, stemming from an uneasy deep feeling that someone, or rather something, is observing your every move? But no, it surely can't be the latter; after all, monsters don't exist. Written by Nick Riganas

15 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

Lights out(2013)is a short horror film that is about a young woman who is just about to go to bed when suddenly she starts seeing a unusual entity that only appears when she turns on the lights,this woman hides in her bed for about 2 minutes and nothing is there,she thinks shes safe and is about to turn of her lamp when she sees a monster of a creature crouched down on its knees with pupiless eyes and gives a horrifying scream as the lamp switches off and the creature probably kills her. Lights came out the day before new years eve. It became so famous it got 13,015,454 views on YouTube and it was even more famous a American film produced by James Wan was released in theaters. I loved this short horror,I got so scared at the end I just loved it,Lights out 2 will come out at one point,the year is unknown.
