Movie Info

For years, the Covington forest has been shrouded in mystery, with a dark past as a final destination for troubled youths. Undeterred by the news of a classmate who recently took his life in those woods, five teens journey into the forest for an evening of flashlight games and ghost stories. But their plans go awry when the friends awaken a demonic presence, an unseen evil that will seize upon their deepest fears-and plunge them into a nightmare of absolute terror. (C) Lionsgate

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

  • A mixed-bag variation on found-footage horror, with creepily atmospheric moments as well as too much mood-killing blabber.

  • "Nightlight" is a perfect example of a film with interesting ideas that are totally smothered by poor execution.

  • "When does this end?" a terrified Robin asks. It's a valid question.

  • While the premise is as absurd as it sounds, it does buck the trend of recent found-footage films that defy their internal logic with parts not produced by cameras available within the story.

  • I felt like it was an interesting idea, there were definitely times where I jumped, and it had a really cute dog in it named Kramer. There were just more parts that I didn't enjoy that outweigh the good.

  • Like a flashlight that's running low on juice, you can feel the life oozing out of Nightlight with every faint flicker.

    Lights turning off and on are not scary no matter how hard nor how many times you try. An appalling waste of time.
