I have updated the gallery with screen captures from the Blu-ray edition of Lights Out to the gallery. Teresa turns in yet another strong performance here, portaying fear so realistically.

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.
