All Light Will End (2018) follows the story of Savannah who is very distant from her family. But one day, she is invited back home in the town of Natchez by her father for her brother’s graduation. She accepts the invitation and brings her boyfriend, Jack and two friends, Paul and Faith to spend a relaxing time at a Cabin in the town of Natchez. However, the small town of Natchez is not as quiet as it is perceived to be. While Savannah is enjoying time at the cabin, Savannah’s father, who is the chief of police and his two police officers are conducting an investigation because of the series of strange decapitations across town, with body parts turning up in the area.
All Light Will End (2018) provides several jump-scares. The gore factor here is nothing extreme nor does the cinematography bolster the eeriness of the film. But what the film lacks in visual effects it makes up for in tension and atmosphere.
The Grave Review
All Light Will End (2018) incorporates a plot that is not original but is both straightforward and clear. The story focuses on the criminal killings that are occurring in the town of Natchez but also focus on Savannah’s personal struggles in life. The film executes this simple plot well and effectively.
The best aspects of the film come from the use of light and shadows to create different atmospheres. For example, shadows were used in order to show Savannah’s dreams and family secrets. The film’s scenes progressed at a moderate speed in order to sustain the viewers’ interest throughout the film. Despite the fact that character development could have been better, there was enough information to tie the story together.
In addition, the performances of the main characters were respectable. Savannah (played by Ashley Pereira) did a great job conveying a deep emotional fatigue brought about by years of nightmares. The supporting characters also were did a good job as well. Overall, the film was able to infuse some terrifying dream sequences, a sinister mystery, and a wonderful lead performance. It is a slasher movie but with a viable story. It is definitely watchable with a plot that is engaging enough to at least keep viewers interested.
For the foregoing reasons, Grave Reviews gives All Light Will End (2018) three graves out of five graves.
