3 mins. Not Rated.


Hey folks, time ran a little late tonight so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to look at a horror short, and what better way to do that than by randomly clicking links on YouTube. The following film is one such example.


Lights Out is the tale of a woman who sees something lurking in the darkness of her hallway. As the entity grows closer and closer, the woman has to defend herself from her deepest fears and whatever appears when the lights go out.

This short is pretty effective, even if I will fight that the final few moments lose me. It displays that you do not need jump scares to effectively frighten. This entire picture exists as mostly mood and it works really well.


Films like Lights Out exist all over the internet, and they are a great way to experience artists that don’t end up at the local marquee. Take a moment and views Lights Out. I really enjoyed it.
