I watched Lights Out yesterday with a group of friends. It started out as a outing for 4 people but eventually people started inviting their friends and it turned into something like a family meeting.
The movie was somewhat disappointing. The jump scares were, as usual, jump scary but the characters weren't as stupid (which is a plus). The movie was shorter than I expected, only 1hr 20mins, and I felt like the storyline was too resolved. After revealing the identity of the "monster" the resolution seemed pretty obvious.
Throughout the movie I expected Bret, Rebecca's boyfriend, to die. Unfortunately he didn't. I don't know why but I always expect more characters to die in horror films. Mainly because it's horror and something always out there trying to kill people. Is it only me?
