Marooned on a remote peninsula and haunted by frightening specters, a young man must confront the grotesque denizens of the night, or heed the Lighthouse Keeper's cryptic warning to, 'Always keep a light burning!'
Tortured by the memory of a childhood trauma, a woman returns after a decade to her family's fly-in hunting lodge to assist her siblings with their dying father, only to find herself stuck in a life threatening nightmare.
The lighting and sound were fantastic, especially for an Indy film. The story had glimmers of something interesting, but it just plodded along from one event to the next as if they were following a storyboard and not a screenplay. The beginning and trailer were great, but then it seemed like a while different film by a whole different director/production crew.
It might have managed to rise above this if the lead actress wasn't so terrible. I spent most of my time wondering how she got chosen, especially with how many choices they obviously had, any of the other women on screen would have been better. I don't think I have ever seen a film where I was actually angry the lead took the role when she had no idea what she was doing. I'm usually very patient with low budget horror flicks, and forgiving, but this is such a waste. So many other films wish they had the talented crew and at least enough budget to make something great, but these guys seemed oblivious to that fact. A minor personal peeve of mine is in movies that are obviously done in English to reach the broadest audience, but yet are obviously foreign, and I wonder if something got lost in translation? Maybe this would have been excellent if done in the native tongue of the actors, writers, and location? I rarely write reviews, but this one irritated me to the point I had to lodge my complaint,, somewhere!
