Bland Poster Premiere For UK Horror ‘When the Lights Went Out’

Now making the festival rounds is the UK indie When the Lights Went Out (previously Speak No Evil). Check out the official poster that reminds me of various direct-to-video covers that have saturated the market over the past few years.

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. Check out the official one-sheet below.
