I read a review of Lights Out that said the movies sub-text became actual text. Horror films seem to deal with things we can't really handle in an imaginary way. For this one, the fright was all about depression. That's all that needs to be said because you can imagine what that the ghost/haunting was about depression. Depression made all too real and literal.

But the word part, the movie did not scare me. I went home, went to bed, closed out the lights in my house. I wanted to be scared of the dark. I wasn't. I put the lights out on this one.

2 of 5 stars.
