Halloween 2018: Lights Out (2016) – Rewatch

A bit of cheating today as I rewatched Lights Out with my husband who had not seen it in the first time. Main reason is that I’m under a mountain of work to finish a deadline for tomorrow so this will have to do for now as I couldn’t finish the movie I was watching after this rewatch. Review for that coming up soon though. 🙂

In this second viewing after two years, I still remember a lot of how I felt the first time and the scenes which is quite impressive to say about a film because I have a horrible memory. It may be a second viewing but I still enjoyed the tension and the use of lights and the whole premise of it. I still see some of the flaws that I mentioned in the original review but its easily ignored as it keeps a decent paced because of its controlled run time. It never lingers too long to be over dramatic and keeps its horror moments even some of their predictable jump scares to work in the realm of what they are doing.

Head over to the original review when I saw it at Fantasia to see my full thoughts. It really hasn’t changed that much.

Tranquil Dreams

The next movie in the Fantasia Festival Line-up before almost a week off before the next one is Lights Out. I haven’t been able to finish the trailer on this one and it hits a lot of my fears such as darkness. Its one I am excited, skeptical and incredibly nervous and frightened to go see. Lights Out is presented as a Montreal Special Screening and was a sold out show. It also presented me with one of the most engaging film watching experience. Please note the film watching and not film. It seemed to need that clarification on Twitter. Everyone screamed and laughed and emoted together. Maybe it will disturb a normal theatre experience but Fantasia is a different vibe because a ton of people there are film buffs if not horror film buffs which adds on to the fun.
