Lights Out suffers from being a one trick pony in that the same type of scare happens over and over again: someone turns out the lights and the ghost shows up. It's redemption comes from a chilling back story and good performances from Maria Bello and Gabriel Bateman in particular. A small budget limits the use of CGI and keeps the visuals on a practical level while relying on atmosphere to establish a sense of fear.
"Lights Out" is rated PG-13 for terror throughout, violence including disturbing images, some thematic material and brief drug content. There is also some profanity. The only real drug content I can remember are scenes of a bong and a few bottles of prescription drugs.
The only special feature on either the Blu-ray or DVD is deleted scenes.
"Lights Out" is available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD.
