10/11/2012 When The Lights Went Out (2012)

A based on true events film about a poltergeist haunting a Yorkshire family in 1974 (a great year!).  It's good (although not particularly scary) with solid performances but the ending's a bit rubbish.  Interesting to see the horrendous 70's fashions and decorations too.

There was an interesting article in Fortean Times about the original haunting earlier this year but I can't find it on their website. Found this Guardian film review instead which gives some background (and has the usual selection of pompous know-alls arguing in the comments section).
