Whether anything supernatural occurs is beside the point because if it did, you'd hardly notice.

I believe all involved really mean it, but it's a long 80 minutes so I really hope it helped them work through whatever they needed it to.

The performance Harrill drives from Gaffigan is quite remarkable, considering he is primarily known for his work as a stand-up comic.

'Light from Light' worked with a light and careful hand to craft a sense of existential ennui that's hard to do without becoming overbearing.

Not your typical jump scare ghost story. Instead a quiet, slowly-paced character film that is worth a watch.

More of an All Saints' Day ghost story than a Halloween one, director Paul Harrill's Light From Light is as low key and quaint as supernatural stories get.

Light From Light may be a small, personal film, but that doesn't lessen the power of its conclusion.

Light from Light is not loud or energetic. It's not frightening. It's simple. It's quiet and patient.
