New Line Cinema’s new blood and guts movie Lights Out, from The Conjuring 2 maker James Wan and first-time executive David F. Sandberg, made a solid impression with its trailer introduction and board at WonderCon 2015.
Featuring Maria Bello and Teresa Palmer, Lights Out offers another turn on a well known awfulness figure of speech: a figure frequents somebody when the lights go out. For this situation, it’s really the guardian who is spooky by a startling figure rather than the kid.
“I generally figured it would be more terrifying if the guardian has the imperceptible companion,” Sandberg clarified on the board. “It kind of began there, and after that it transformed into this entire story of managing your folks and family history.”
Bello, who plays spooky and schizophrenic character Sophie, gave the motion picture her vote of certainty; she watched it as of late, and joyfully shared that she “watched it between my fingers.” “That is the point at which I knew it was truly great,” she said. “For a blood and guts movie, it’s such a show, and a family dramatization.”
