Watched The Movie Lights Out
My wife and I went and saw “Lights Out” yesterday and watched it. I would rate the it a 7 out of 10 with my scale being 7 OK, 8 and 9 good and 10 fantastic. Anything below 7 is failing to various degrees. Kind of like a test you take in a college course where everything below a 70 was considered failing or dis-satisfactory.
Anyway, the premise of the story is that a super-natural spirit who can only attack people in the dark, but when the lights are on, is unable to do so. However, if the lights are off, the spirit is able to do so. I don’t want to give away too much of the movie so that I don’t spoil it for others. Teresa Palmer plays the main star of the show, Rebecca. As the story progresses, you will find that she is fighting to protect her little brother and that her mother seems to have a depression problem. I will say that much as it won’t give everything away. You can read some reviews here on “Rotten Tomatoes:” Lights Out Review or Snyposis.
I think their rating was pretty dead on of 7 out of 10 as well. In addition to Rebecca fighting to protect her brother in the movie, she also uncovers some things of her mother’s past as well which plays into the premise of the movie. I think the movie is worth going to see in the movie theaters. My wife and I really enjoyed it! This is especially good for horror fans like my wife and I. Teresa Palmer in the movie also strikes me as a California woman similar to the ones I have met in the past. Very independent and intelligent woman. This particular story is also about mental illness as well. Anyway, I hope some of you who go to watch it enjoyed it as much as my wife and I!
