Lights Out Review : Are You Afraid of Dark? Doesn’t Matter Here!
Light horror movie, Lights Out isn’t defining the definition of Dark, instead, it confuses us with this question which needs to answer? Are you afraid of Dark?
Surely, Lights Out is drenched in cliche and threatens to be completely drab until it’s saved by its frightening finale.
An evil spirit that mysteriously connected to his mother Sophie, Martin seeks help from his older sister Rebecca. The Ghost strike in the dark is the reason Martin is unable to sleep at night and when Rebecca admits that she herself was previously haunted by the demon, the pair soon joins together to fight it off and try to save their mother.
The story and plot both drive you crazy at the end of the interval and instead of pulling you as a viewer, you are ended up just laughing. Even, Director David F. Sandberg‘s attempts to deviate from this platitude with suspenseful sequences don’t quite hit the mark but there are numerous strong thrills and characters has some emotions attached to it.
Teresa Palmer and Maria Bello also add some flashes of their character but failed to approach in depth and the result the film has no interest in exploring them and that’s why the movie quickly moves on from the plot and characterization.
Of Course, the ending is hated by many but it does elevate the film to a near masterpiece and that’s what makes it one of the best horror movies of 2016. Lights Out is the brilliantly scary and chilling movie you need to see.
Despite being so many flaws, Lights Out managed to strike and left the audiences at screening joyfully applauding audacity.
But Lights Out Movie could have done a slightly better job of preparing the audiences for the final moment but when it arrives, it has a dark grandeur attached to it which makes the ending of the film is either brilliant or wrongheaded.
