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

Nice Horror Short
2 December 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Lights Out (2013)

*** (out of 4)

Effective horror short from David F. Sandberg would be the bases for his feature length version from 2016. Basically a woman walks into her apartment and when she turns the lights off she sees a figure. When she turns the lights back on it's gone. Each time she turns the lights off the figure reappears. Obviously the suspense comes from the director building up how much closer the figure gets to the woman and for the most part this worked quite well. It clocks in at less than three minutes so the film obviously doesn't run along too long but it certainly makes an impression and especially the ending. Horror fans should enjoy this.
