The horror genre has had a huge presence at the box office this summer, and the seasonal scares continue with this weekend’s Lights Out (review). For a little sneak peek of what we can expect, our own Staci Layne Wilson just sat down with director David F. Sandberg and stars Lotta Losten, Teresa Palmer, Maria Bello, and Alexander DiPersia, and we invite you to check out those insightful interviews below!
David F. Sandberg directs the film from a screenplay by Eric Heisserer, based on Sandberg’s own short film. James Wan produces alongside Lawrence Grey, Eric Heisserer, and executive producers Walter Hamada, Dave Neustadter, Richard Brener, Michael Clear, Jack Murray, and Ben Everard.
From producer James Wan (The Conjuring) and Lawrence Grey’s Grey Matter 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.
