Become afraid of the dark with the first trailer for ‘Lights Out’


Ever been afraid of the dark? Whether you still are or aren’t then the first trailer for the James Wan-produced Lights Out will definitely bring back those fears. During the WonderCon panel, producer James Wan and first-time director David F. Sandberg released the first trailer for the horror film. Check it out!

According to the director, Lights Out will put an interesting spin on the typical horror trope. “I always figured it would be more scary if the parent has the invisible friend,” said Sandberg. “It sort of started there, and then it turned into this whole story of dealing with your parents and family history.”

James Wan wanted to produce Lights Out because he wanted to give new filmmakers like Sandberg the types of opportunities he had when he started with Saw. “I want to start off making the type of horror films I loved when I grew up as a kid,” he said. “What’s so great about the horror genre is you can really take chances. You can take chances and try things you can’t otherwise try.”

“I think you’re going to see a new horror villain unlike any you’ve seen before, and above all something really, really scary,” said co-producer Lawrence Grey.

What do you think?

From producer James Wan (“The Conjuring”) comes a tale of an unknown terror that lurks in the dark. When Rebecca left home, she thought she left her childhood fears behind. Growing up, she was never really sure of what was and wasn’t real when the lights went out…and now her little brother, Martin, is experiencing the same unexplained and terrifying events that had once tested her sanity and threatened her safety. A frightening entity with a mysterious attachment to their mother, Sophie, has reemerged. But this time, as Rebecca gets closer to unlocking the truth, there is no denying that all their lives are in danger…once the lights go out.

Lights Out scares theaters on July 22nd.
