    Swedish director & filmmaker David F. Sandberg made a very short horror-clip called Lights Out in 2013 for a Short-movie Contest, that he won.The short-clip went viral on the net, and it is a bit freaky in all its simplicity, and you might have seen it;

    Lights Out - Who's There - Film Challenge (2013)



    He then made a full feature of it in 2016;

    Lights Out (2016)
    A man called Paul is working after hours and is murdered by a supernatural entity in the shadow. When his son, the boy Martin, is frightened by the same creature, he sees his mother Sophie talking to an imaginary friend called Diana in the shadow of her room. Martin does not sleep anymore during the night. His older step sister Rebecca who lives alone is summoned by the social assistant. She brings Martin home and recalls her own experience with Diana years ago when she was young. Rebecca and her boyfriend Bret investigate the connection of Sophie with Diana and come up to a scary revelation about their past.

    That's funny. I saw that movie recently, and it made me think about that short - I didn't know it was the same film director. The short was good, the feature was... bad.

    The Discovery (2017)
    Two years after Dr. Thomas Harbor (Robert Redford) has scientifically proved the existence of an afterlife, suicide rates are through the roof. Harbor's son Will, who is less than fond of how society has reacted to this discovery, arrives on an island where his father has holed himself up in a mansion compound surrounded by Will's brother Toby and various survivors of attempted suicide. They are assisting Dr. Harbor in his search for the next level of truth — finding out what the afterlife really is.



    It wasn't exceptional, but interesting nonetheless

    Entity (2012)

    (Not to be confused by the 80’s ghost movie The Entity)​

    "It is 2010 and in the stark Siberian forest a small film crew trudge through the harsh Russian landscape in search of the site where 12 years earlier thirty four bodies were found in shallow graves. Their identities were never discovered and their deaths remain unexplained.

    Working on a British paranormal TV show entitled ‘The Darkest Secrets’ the group of five includes the show’s cameraman, sound guy, presenter and a powerful psychic Ruth Peacock and their Russian guide Yuri who has brought them to this barren and tragic place.

    At the site of the graves Ruth has an intense and disturbing vision which leads the gang to a strange and foreboding facility, the purpose of which is unclear to them all. Once inside though, they all start to experience unnatural and unexplainable events that push them to the limits of their sanity and safety, unlocking the secrets of the past and forever damning them to a future full of fear."

    With the minimal special effects used wisely and well, Entity carefully and craftily creates a genuinely creepy atmosphere that keeps you on edge throughout the film – through all the terror filled trials and tribulations the ill-fated five are forced into till its final pay off.

    A great ghost story well told and well-made, Entity is a harrowing British horror that works well on all its frightening fronts.

    Found this Dave Gilmour documentary on Youtube and had to watch it. He is my all time favourite guitarist, being able to combine incredible skill with passion and emotion like no other. Watching this was like looking into a mirror in many ways.

    A rare book dealer, while seeking out the last two copies of a demon text, gets drawn into a conspiracy with supernatural overtones.


    Loving old books, I absolutely love this film and its atmosphere.

    Yeah, even the theme music is haunting & ominous. It sounds like a carnival-organ from hell.
