About the Movie

When Rebecca left home, she thought she left her childhood fears behind. Growing up, she was never really sure of what was and wasn’t real when the lights went out…and now her little brother, Martin, is experiencing the same unexplained and terrifying events that had once tested her sanity and threatened her safety. A frightening entity with a mysterious attachment to their mother, Sophie, has reemerged. But this time, as Rebecca gets closer to unlocking the truth, there is no denying that all their lives are in danger…once the lights go out.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Spackling over any copycat cracks with strong acting and fleet editing, "Lights Out" delivers minimalist frights in old-school ways. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jul 21, 2016

Fresh: Predictable stuff, energized by some spiffy scare effects and actors who perform well beyond the call of fright-house duty. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Jul 22, 2016

Fresh: Although the movie doesn't offer much in the way of characterization, its cheap thrills are manufactured effectively, like an amusement-park ride designed to rattle the nerves. – Bruce Diones, New Yorker, Aug 1, 2016

Rotten: The fun wears out fast and so does the "gotcha" factor. – Rex Reed, New York Observer, Jul 28, 2016

Scarier than The Conjuring!

The idea of this movie was really good. Loved the story behind the movie! But what I look for in horror movies is suspense and lots of jumpscares. This movie gave me just that. I screamed in theater by watching this movie more than watching The Conjuring 2. The whole theater screamed too! I feel like now after watching this movie I won't sleep and I will keep the lights on because I see shadows in the dark and I think it's Diana. Go see this movie if you haven't yet! James Wan never lets me down!

Lights Out

This movie is pretty decent. The jump scares are a bit predictable, but overall effective. Now I don't go to horror films to jump in my seat. I go to see a disturbing and mind-infesting thrill ride with actual characters, and not disposable wooden objects. This film has a good story, with actual characters, but what I like most about this film is the excellent lighting. However , there a little too many jumpscares that deflate the film and most of them are predictable. Overall, Lights Out is worth a watch.

Love it

I usually hate scary movies. But I loved this one, I screamed so hard and almost cried until the ending lol
