House Becomes a Living Nightmare ‘When the Lights Went Out’

Now in post-production is the UK indie When the Lights Go Out (previously Speak No Evil).

Based on true events, the Pat Holden-directed thriller is set in Yorkshire, 1974. Britain is in recession, the oil crisis and black outs loom large. The Maynard Family move into their dream house, only to find a “PRESENCE” already living there.

Len (Steve Waddington), Jenny (Kate Ashfield) and their daughter Sally (Tasha Connor) must struggle to keep their already-fragile family together as they are attacked by poltergeists. Soon it becomes apparent that Sally is their main focus of attention. The house becomes a living nightmare. They must exorcise the evil spirits for them to survive.

The film comes from the producers of Moon.
