Based on the short by David Sandberg.
After Martin’s father is killed by a mysterious presence in the dark, he starts having trouble sleeping at night. School officials notice him sleeping in class and attmept to call his mother, Sophie, but cannot get an answer. They call his sister, Rebecca, and she comes to pick him up. We learn that Rebecca had distanced herself from her mother and her father went away because of her mother’s mental issues when she goes off her meds. Turns out the mother has a friend named Diana that does not like lights. Rebecca, her boyfriend Bret, and Martin look into Sophie’s past for a hint on the very real, very supernatural, Diana. We get jump scares galore and an ending that leaves room for a sequel, but has satisfying closure regardless.
TL;DR: Fun movie with Jump Scares and an ending that goes to places you do not normally go to. See it with a crowd in the theater.
