See this if you want fun & scary

Just saw a screening of it. If you like horror I'd say go see it. It is a jump scare movie but there's some depth and story to it. Character development was great, actually get to care about them and want to see them make it out. Acting was pretty good. F/X were good. The only part that I didn't like was they did the explanation of the backstory by one character explaining it to another. I always hate when they do that, just seems lazy.The audience really got into it with a lot of people jumping and then a lot of giggles at themselves and others for jumping. Oh and in our screening the comedic relief of the big guy down front yelling "oh s**t" every time Diana jumps out. It reminded me of when I was a young teen and we'd get a whole group to go see the newest horror (F13,Halloween etc)You can't take it too seriously, just sit back and enjoy it.Overall I'd give it a 8/10 which is pretty good for a horror flick.

Creepy and satisfying

Lights Out takes some queues from Japanese-styled ghost stories, so it will be attractive to that audience. It has a strong chill-factor but a somewhat average formula, and it could have used fewer back-story explanations to make it more mysterious, especially since those elements did not feel original. Based on chill factor alone, it ranks higher than Dark Water, The Forest, Paranormal Activity, The Others, The Babadook, and The Boy, and lower than The Ring, Ju-On / The Grudge, and other Japanese-styled ghost stories, as well as any horror James Wan himself directs. Comparing it to masterpieces like The Exorcist and Poltergeist has no value. I would say its chills rank somewhat evenly with The Woman in Black and It Follows, without being as original as the latter.The ghost itself is creepy enough, but the overall movie didn't have the creative twists that we enjoyed from movies like The Boy, The Others, The Sixth Sense, and 10 Cloverfield Lane. It also didn't have the storytelling chemistry of James Wan's own Insideous or The Conjuring movies.I am a fairly difficult person to frighten. I have been seeing horror movies at the theater since the 70's, and I am usually only interested in the ones that have a supernatural or fantastical element to them. So I am very critical of them, and the only ones I collect on disc are either fun (Tremors), scary (the Grudge), or both (An American Werewolf in London). I will collect this one.Ghost stories are done to death. It is very difficult to come out with anything scary that is original. I think Lights Out could have used the guided hand of a third-party master horror writer, mostly revising the back-story revelations and using the character relationships to build suspense and mystery surrounding what is going on. Then, perhaps working up to a punch line at the end so that suddenly the back- story rushes in on the audience in one moment, with one simple revelation. It is very difficult to think of how that can be done, but other movies have done it, and the payoff is huge. I think Lights Out tried to do that a little but got confusing in the attempt. But all-in-all it's a nice little scary movie with a smaller production value but a satisfying ghost.

Excellent horror movie!

I personally think this movie is one of the greatest horror movies ever! Teresa Palmer and Gabriel Bateman's acting is very good, absolutely credible, almost like Rosa Byrne's performance in Insidious, which was flawless. The cinematography was good, dark scenes pretty clear, intense sound effects well achieved.If you go to the cinema with your childhood fears, you will really enjoy this movie. It's full of scares and if you put attention to them, they are the kind of scares that you really fear when you are a kid.I don't understand why people cannot leave their critics-attitude at home and simply enjoy this movie or any other movie. If they do it, you'll enjoy it a lot.

Good, not Great

The characters are likable, the premise frightening, and the storytelling good enough to keep people entertained and scared for an hour and a half.My only real complaint about the movie is that it doesn't leave a lasting impression. Everything feels like it's missing a crucial ingredient that could have turned this from a good film into a great film. The characters don't feel fully fleshed out. Ya, some of their backstories are kind of told, but they feel rushed and forced in in some cases. The ghost woman is great, but she shows up too much in the film. By the time it's over, your used to seeing her and expect her to pop out in every scene like a jack-in-the-box. And probably the biggest issue is that the ghost shows up right from the get go. There's no build-up to her reveal, no real questions about whether she exists or not, she's just BAM right there.But in the end these are minor complaints. I definitely enjoyed the film a lot more than I expected and would recommend it to any horror movie lover. I just wish it had a bigger impact.
