Watch: New Trailer for Acclaimed Original Horror Movie 'Lights Out'
"Everyone is afraid of the dark, and that's what she feeds on." Warner Bros has debuted the second official trailer for David F. Sandberg's Lights Out, a new horror thriller that received some rave reviews after premiering at the Los Angeles Film Festival. Based on Sandberg's short film, the film is about a malevolent ghost that only appears when the lights go out, which seems like a simple concept but it's done so effectively it makes this horror completely original and very, very scary. Teresa Palmer stars, along with Gabriel Bateman, Alexander DiPersia, Billy Burke and Maria Bello. There are a few creepy moments in this trailer, but the best scenes are being kept for the full movie. Which is a smart move. Don't watch in the dark.
Here's the official trailer for David F. Sandberg's Lights Out, direct from WB's YouTube:
You can still watch the first trailer for Lights Out here, to see even more footage from this.
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. Lights Out is directed by newcomer David F. Sandberg, from a screenplay written by Eric Heisserer. It's based on the original short film by David F. Sandberg - which you can see here. Warner Bros will release Lights Out in theaters everywhere starting July 22nd this summer. Curious?

Such an ingenious concept! I loved the short. And by Gawd (!) does this look scary!

High acclaim from Fred Topel of Nerd Report, Kayln Corrigan from Bloody Disgusting, a guy from Forbes.com and then Fred Topel again....

I'm starting to think if there's anything wrong with horrors today then it's the idea that they need to be scary ... Another pointless cliche ...

It seems like an original concept, but the plot seems to follow the predictability of most other horror films these days. The "tragic ghost is looking for said human to solve their horrible demise so they may be at peace" plot line.... But, I could be wrong....you planning on seeing/reviewing it any time soon Alex?

Jump-scares everywhere.. Can't it just have a good plot and a disturbing direction.. BTW, this is so Darkness (2002).

How do you know the plot isn't good? Did you see the movie?

Well, I did say "just have..", which saying jump scares are irrelevant, even if the plot is good.
