With James Wan (The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2) producing, up and coming talent David F. Sandberg directing, and Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) starring, it’s no wonder Lights Out is one of this year’s most anticipated horrors.
Adapted from Sandberg’s original short film and written by Eric Heisserer, Lights Out follows Rebecca (Palmer), a young woman who, along with her little brother Martin (Gabriel Bateman), becomes haunted by a creature that only appears when the lights go out. Check out the latest trailer below, which features plenty of jump-scare-worthy moments.
Sandberg is also set to direct the sequel to 2014’s Annabelle, which of course was born out of the popularity of the opening sequence in James Wan’s hugely successful 2013 horror The Conjuring. With Lights Out set to terrify audiences worldwide, it looks like Sandberg is well on his way to establishing himself as the next big horror director.
Lights Out will be released in the USA on July 22 and in the UK on August 19.
