Lights Out Trailer (2016)
Trailer for Lights Out, starring Teresa Palmer and Gabriel Bateman.
From producer James Wan (The Conjuring) comes a tale of an unknown terror that lurks in the dark. 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.
Though the film is the feature directorial debut for David F. Sandberg, the director definitely deserves it. It was he who wrote and directed the short film [under the same title] that Lights Out is based on. And he's not alone, as Lotta Losten, who was also involved with the short, will have a role in the feature adaptation.
It would seem that producer James Wan, who is busy also working on The Conjuring 2, has a thing for Aussie actresses. He found success with Rose Byrne in Insidious and will now test that Australian luck again with Teresa Palmer.
Well, great. Just when audiences thought they were no longer afraid of the dark, they now have to witness this Lights Out trailer. It's terrifying.
As I've said repeatedly, I'm not much of a fan of the horror genre. Signing up [and paying] to have the shit scared out of me is not my idea of escape. I however have to acknowledge the brilliance of what Lights Out is not only trying to achieve, but succeeds at doing. The first twenty seconds of this first trailer for the horror are terrifying. It perfectly sets up the notion that, yes, it is always more frightening to be in the dark; thanks for the reminder... dick.
As a kid, I can't remember what it was that first made me "afraid of the dark," but as an adult I think Lights Out might be the new reason.
As a bit of kudos for the production, this role might be the best I've ever seen Teresa Palmer look. She looks years younger than she did in The Choice, and the two films are only months apart. #crushtime
