Once in a while though, a good one comes along that does it's job and scares us, or even better, gives us something worthy of spending 90 minutes of our time on. For that reason, we keep watching them, and hoping for the best.
In the case of Nightlight, we get a movie that tries its best to make the most out of its unique premise, but it never really maximizes its potential like it could have.

The movie also has its share of intense moments, and Shelby Young was solid in the lead role.

Obviously it's all supposed to be disorienting by design, but none of it never seems to fit together to make any sort of a coherent point. What exactly are the rules of this movie and its supernatural forces, and why couldn't it just make a tiny bit more straightforward sense? Was it the spirit of Robin's dead friend that was out to get them? And if they were keeping things vague and confused on purpose, then what was the point of the scene where two characters find a backpack with a paper inside that conveniently details the symptoms of possession, or the "I just wanted to feel pretty!" monologue?

Nightlight is available now on VOD.
Shelby Young, Chloe Bridges, and Taylor Murphy definitely lit up the darkness of Nightlight with their beauty.
