It may not be Halloween season, but there’s never a bad time for a good scare – and filmmaker David F. Sandberg has delivered just that in his award-winning short film Lights Out. You’ll be looking for a night-light after watching this, trust us.
The story is simple: a woman prepares for bed, only to discover that something might be lurking in the shadows of her home. Next thing you know, a grown woman has reverted right back to her childhood. (Pro Tip: hiding under the covers never fools any monsters.) Is she just imagining things, or is there something genuinely malevolent stalking her? You’ll have to wait until the last shot to know for sure.
Take a look at Lights Out below – just make sure you’re watching it in a well-lit room. We take no responsibility for the nightmares this is sure to inspire.
