This is a surprisingly competent horror movie with chilling events , thrills and nail-biting scenes

Mystery and horror movie including chills , intrigue , terrifying happenings and it's certainly better than most other films of the same genre concerning a diabolic and mysterious terror appearing at a house . Enjoyable horror movie with thrills , chills and strange events , while the roles scream and panic her way through most of their scenes and including limited CGI . One of the film's strongest points is the fact that there's quite a lot of fun to be had with the supernatural aspects of the storyline . Stars Rebecca (Teresa Palmer) who must unlock the horror behind her traumatized little sibling's (Gabriel Bateman)grisly experiences that once tested her sanity , bringing her face to face with a supernatural spirit attached to their mother (Maria Bello) . At mother's house takes place a series of strange and eerie incidents . Later on , Rebecca is shocked when to be aware about the weird person there inhabits . Everything then changes in eerie way and things go wrong . You were right to be afraid of the dark. Darkness will consume you. Every Child Need To Feel Loved.

A creepy and thrilling film about a haunting house where lives a weird being , it packs inexplicable disturbing occurrences , shocks, thrills , suspense , chills, hair-rising events and surprising final twist . This starts off at the very beginning occuring mysterious happenings , as the camera lurks suspensenful behind its actors and beside them and above them and everywhere else . A scary and unsettling flick that garnered very positive reception on the internet in spite of its short budget , as the picture goes on growing more and more and developing little by little until the unexpected conclusion . The main and support cast are pretty well , giving attractive performances such as Teresa Palmer , Maria Bello , Gabriel Bateman , Alexander DiPersia and brief acting by Billy Burke as unfortunate father.

The pic contains a dark and colorful cinematography by Marc Spicer . Equally, a mysterious and suspenseful musical score by Benjamin Wallfisch , composing a sinister atmosphere . The motion picture was competently directed by horror expert David F. Sandberg who made the decision to focus on practical effects and avoided as much computed generator effects as possible . Being feature film debut of David F. Sandberg . As David decided to expand his original short film Lights out (2013) into a feature film thanks to producer James Wan , the latter has financed and directed notorious horror movies , such as : Swamp Thing , The Curse of La Llorona , Saw saga , Annabelle: Creation , Conjuring saga , Insidious saga , Demonic , Annabelle , among others . While fimmaker David Sanberg has made a few films all of them limited to short movies and terror genre as Annabelle : Creation , adding a peculiar superhero movie : ¡Shazam! (2019) . Rating 6.5/10. Acceptable and decent terror movie. Well worth watching.

Teasing & Anticipatory but...

... the viewer, having risen to the jump scare challenge, is left unsatisfied with the intensely unoriginal anticlimactic closure - it promises much but leaves you to play on your own.

great visual concept

Martin is a little boy hounded by a monster in the dark. His dad (Billy Burke) is killed by a woman in the dark. His mother (Maria Bello) seems to be talking to that mysterious being called Diana. Children's Services calls in his step-sister Rebecca (Teresa Palmer) who has commitment issues unwilling to even let Bret keep one sock at her place. Rebecca takes Martin to her home upon seeing her mother in dire mental state.

The visual concept of a lurker in the dark is quite compelling. The movie could have done more with a slower burn. It does a big kill right at the beginning which leaves the shock of discovery less overwhelming. It becomes the same move over and over again. It's a great move but it would work so much better with a gradual ramp up. The mother's madness is intriguing. A little more thought could be used to maximize the story.
