Don’t Turn Out the Lights follows a group of friends on a seemingly ordinary road trip. However, their journey takes a horrifying turn when they encounter a terrifying and unexplainable entity that threatens their lives.

A captivating ensemble cast brings the story to life. Bella DeLong (“The Winchesters”), Amber Janea (A Predator Returns), and Daryl Tofa (The Outsiders on Broadway) star alongside John Bucy (“Frasier” reboot) and Finley Rose Slater (“Days of Their Lives”).

Andy Fickman‘s filmography includes Race to Witch Mountain, and She’s The Man. Boasting a nearly $1 billion gross at the worldwide box office, Fickman brings his experience to this suspenseful horror project.

“It’s hard to believe that Don’t Turn Out the Lights is inspired by a real-life encounter, but we are glad that Andy Fickman made it out in one piece to be able to tell this chilling story,” said Quiver Distribution Co-Presidents Berry Meyerowitz and Jeff Sackman. “Being able to partner up again with Clay and the team at Film Mode on another film is an added benefit.”

Quiver Distribution, known for its passion for the horror genre, is collaborating with Film Mode Entertainment on this project. This collaboration promises a film that will leave audiences questioning the darkness around them.

The film premiered at the prestigious Frightfest Halloween event in late 2023 and received rave reviews. With Quiver Distribution on board, the film is poised for a wider release.

Don’t Turn Out the Lights is not just chilling audiences in North America. This chilling tale will also be released worldwide, including in Germany, Malaysia, Portugal, the Philippines, the United Kingdom, India, the Middle East, and Poland.

The film has also launched its own ARG (alternate reality game) designed by the creator of the “The Tinman.” Hard-core fans and gamers can put themselves into the movie, at the “Blue Light Music Fest.

The release date for Don’t Turn Out the Lights has yet to be announced, but with its festival success, impressive creative team, and global reach, this film promises to be a must-watch for horror aficionados.
