My thoughts… You will think twice about rolling over to switch the light off on your nightstand after seeing Lights Out! I still get chills every time I watch this creepy film! Sure, it’s a simple jump scare that dozens of horror films, short or otherwise, have used but none, for me, have been quite as effective. Lights Out is my favorite but Sandberg and Losten’s other short horror films are just as creepy!
