Could have been better.....
27 March 2015 | by thiagobguzzoSee all my reviews

Nightligh is about a group of friends that will play in a haunted forest. The film does not explain exactly what happened to them, there is cool scenes and good effects, but they actors are not so good. The movie could be show more ghosts and give more scares. Sometimes show a creature like a demon, sometimes the movies talk about a spirit of a boy, I don't understand that, was to vague at this point in the history of the movie, and the are a lot of cliché. It's the same thing all time, friends will play stupid jokes in abandoned place that is haunted and the things go upside down after happened a lot of strange noises and strange things, but no one goes home until disaster strikes. This history already tired. They should invent a new kind of haunting , a reason the place is haunted, but they preferred put boys and girls in a forest to be killed one by one. It is good to watch if you have nothing better.
