Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Nightlight is a "found footage" horror movie about young people lost in a haunted woods at night. It begins and ends with a video diary of a suicidal teen (or twentysomething), though it doesn't really address the issue of suicide in a substantial way. Language is the biggest issue, with the characters frequently using "f--k," "s--t," "p---y," and more. There's some blood (spatters, bloody eye sockets, a sliced neck, etc.), and characters seemingly die. There are also plenty of jump-scares and loud noises. A male character shows his naked butt, and there's strong sexual innuendo and sex talk during the movie's first third. All in all, this is a highly uninspired rip-off of The Blair Witch Project, and it's bad enough that most teens won't be interested.

Sexual Content

Brief naked male butt. Strong innuendo and sexual references ("horny," "blow jobs," "slutty chicks," "tramp stamps," "banging," Viagara, masturbation, etc.). Packages of condoms shown.


Bloody spatters. Bloody eye sockets. Neck slicing with broken glass. Dead bodies. References to teen suicide. Cut finger on barbed wire. Foot caught in bear trap. Dangerous train dodge. Dead animal. Loud noises and jump-scares. Reference to rape. Bloody nose.


Very strong language includes frequent use of "f--k," "s--t," "p---y," "motherf----r," "a--hole," "ass," "goddamn," "bitch," "boobs," "vagina," "damn," "slut," "douche," and "Jesus Christ" (as an exclamation).

Social Behavior

References suicide by teens and/or twentysomethings, using the subject for a dramatic backstory. Briefly suggests that suicide affects everyone, not just one person. Also: Don't go in the scary woods at night.
