Nightlight movie full length review - Incredibly fun haunted forest effort

Heading out to a supposedly cursed woodland area, a group of friends find the claim that a demonic presence lurks in the woods to be true when they happen upon a terrifying force in the area and must find a way of getting out alive.

For the most part this one was a highly enjoyable and exciting effort. What really works so well throughout here is the absolutely incredible atmosphere throughout this one as there's some thoroughly suspenseful and creepy moments in here that work due to the fantastic idea of how this one plays out. Playing up the haunted forest aspect incredibly well as there's just nothing at all wrong with the early set-up here, it goes from the early exploits of their games and camaraderie together with just the slightest hints that something's wrong with banging noises in the woods or animal howls off in the distance only to continually prove that nothing malicious is out there only to then suddenly turn that into a rather terrifying and enjoyable feature once the horror starts in earnest. Though there's some early fun here as it sets up the fact that there's something in the woods with them, once it showcases what's out there the film really kicks up with an impressive series of scenes as there's all manner of chases, confrontations and generally creepy encounters here that are immensely enjoyable and entertaining. There's plenty of utterly suspenseful times here, with the encounter with the boyfriend out among the rocks overlooking the cliff and the group in the woods where the falling tree nearly crushes them come off the best though the absolutely chilling sequence where they are followed by the unseen force turning on the motion-activated lights behind them which gets closer and closer while they wait for it to appear which it does in a rather chilling and startling effect, and the finale in the church is an absolute stand-out as well as the creaking wood and ominous foot- steps continually getting closer lead to a rather chilling finish. This leads to plenty of high-energy action along the way here with this one getting the dive into the underground caves or the attack on the abandoned car in the middle of the woods being superb stand-outs that really sell this one quite nicely and makes for another highly-enjoyable part of the film to go along with all the utterly chilling encounters. Though the found-footage aspect, given a more intriguing spin here as actually being framed from the lights of the their equipment instead of a video-camera as per usual, still comes with the rather tired antic of having the out-of-focus shaking visual trick that renders a lot of scenes really hard to make out what's happening and there's little thought into what's going on here as the story makes no sense, these here are really all that keep this one down.

Rated R: Graphic Language, Violence and Brief Male Nudity.
