14 Jul – Cinema Online readers were recently given the chance to watch the anticipated horror movie, "Lights Out" – a week before its official release date in local cinemas!
Just by joining Cinema Online contests, lucky readers were able to get their hands on passes to attend the premiere screening held yesterday at GSC Paradigm.
Naturally, since everyone was very much entertained (or spooked?) by James Wan's recent movie, "The Conjuring 2", the audience was looking forward to watching "Lights Out" because it is produced by Wan.
Though understandably the style would be different as the movie is helmed by another director, the audience was anticipating the difference.
One audience member, Afifi, said with a grin, "I am expecting the jump scares".
The horror movie aficionados that attended the screening were definitely not disappointed by the movie. Screams and gasps could be heard throughout the entire hall during the screening.
As the credits rolled, most of the audience members could be heard voicing their approval of the movie, saying that it was definitely a horror movie worth a watch.
Directed by David F. Sandberg (also directing "Annabelle 2"), "Lights Out" tells the story of a family that gets threatened by a mysterious entity every time the lights go out.
"Lights Out" darkens big screens nationwide this 21 July.
