FILM
THE CONJURING: LIGHTS OUT | SF BIO
12/8

Grab the person sitting in the next seat tight, put the popcorn safely on the floor and prepare for an evening of jumps, frights and all-round creepiness. Set around the eery command “do not turn off the lights” Rebecca, half-brother Martin and his mother Sophie are pulled into a world that metamorphasies into a nightmare with a simple flick of a switch. Lingering in the darkness is the figure of a woman with long fingers and bloodthirsty urge to remove the people that are trying to rid her from this world, little do they know the power she has over her unsuspecting prey. Tantalising scary and horrifying enough to ensure you keep the lights on any time of the day, this movie is a must see this weekend after rave reviews in the US.
