Critic Reviews for When the Lights Went Out

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (7)

  • Director Pat Holden delivers a few effective shocks but overcooks the climax.

    September 13, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • This British scary movie is preposterous and cheesy, if occasionally oddly enjoyable.

    September 12, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A film that not even the formidable Gary Lewis can save is a scary thing indeed.

    September 11, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Aesthetically authentic and frightening in parts. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem all that different to what has come before it.

    September 9, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The film redeems itself a lot though by its unique setting and very good acting, especially from the younger members of the cast.

    January 14, 2020 | Full Review…
  • As a haunted house film, its use of darkened corridors, banging doors and moonlit fields surrounded by trees rustled with sudden gusts of wind, lend the proceedings an authentically creepy ambience.
