When her brother experiences the same horrific events she did, Rebecca works to unlock the truth behind the terror.

USA | 82 min | PG-13 | DCP | Dir. David Sandberg 

A young woman (Teresa Palmer) must protect her brother (Gabriel Bateman) from a terrifying apparition that only manifests in total darkness. Later, she realizes that this fearsome entity is connected to her mentally ill mother (Maria Bello), who has started hallucinating conversations with a mysterious figure named Diana. Billy Burke and Alexander DiPersia co-star. Produced by James Wan (The Conjuring), Lights Out is a feature-length expansion of director David F. Sandberg's short film of the same name, which became a viral sensation online. (Fandango)

"A lean, mean scare-machine, and a surprise contender for horror of the year. Seek it out. Then, for God’s sake, buy a bedside lamp." - Simon Crook (Empire)
