We've all been there: the lights are out, and you see something that you'd swear wasn't there--or shouldn't be there---when the lights are on. Turning the lights on usually dispels our fears, proving that what we thought was something horrifying was, in reality, just an item in the room we're in.

Then there are times when turning on the lights does no good at all.

That's the premise of 'Lights Out,' a horror short that packs in lots of scares at only 2 minutes and 35 seconds. I recommend watching it before the sun goes down and not by yourself. If you want more horror after you watch this, click here.
