'Lights Out' Is A Horror Short That Proves Nothing Can Protect You From The Darkness

I’m not going to admit to being scared by this horror short from Swedish filmmaker David Sandberg. I’m also not going to admit that I walked around checking light bulbs in my house following my first viewing.

What I will admit is that Lights Out is a horror feature that is just as good as films like The Conjuring and Insidious, but with a much shorter running time. It’s also quite impressive considering how almost every aspiring filmmaker I’ve ever known has made a horror film of some sort and they’re usually sh*t.

My only disappointment is that the beast at the end didn’t turn out to be Old Gregg from The Mighty Boosh. All the fear would’ve washed away of course, but I would’ve been happier than I’ve been in a long time.
