Light from Light VIOLENCE/GORE 2

 – A teenage girl wheezes and gasps to breathe after having been stung by a wasp; a man injects her with an EpiPen, she breathes more easily and we see her in a hospital recovering.
 While walking through a house alone and in the dark we hear a thud and something shattering in another room; we see that a cable has pulled items off a counter and spilled their contents on the floor. A woman bumps a bookshelf and a book falls on the floor next to her. Pages of a book turn unaided and lights in a room flicker in a few scenes.
 A woman and two teenagers rig a house with cameras and recording devices to see if there is any paranormal activity. A woman walks slowly through a dark house asking if anyone is there and if so, “Let yourself be known.” A woman walks through a room containing the belongings of a woman who is now dead.
 A woman talks about feeling about seeing the ghost of her father shortly after he died and that after she chased him, he disappeared. A woman talks about having a dream where she saw a woman’s sister embrace her at church and then she discovered that the sister had died. A man says that he felt like something unseen had its hand on him. We hear that a man fears imagining things. A man says, “I feel like she’s still here,” referring to his wife who has died. We hear that a woman died in a plane crash with a man. We see a newspaper headline about a private plane crash that killed the pilot and the passenger. A woman says that her father “drank himself to death.”
 We see the wreckage of a plane crash in a mountain. A teen boy sits on a platform with what seems like a gun hanging next to him (it is a paintball gun).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
