Inspired by the unfinished story from the original master of horror, Edgar Allan Poe, the forthcoming horror film ‘Lighthouse Keeper’ is an old-fashioned gothic tale with an emphasis on atmosphere, story, and macabre chills in the vein of Roger Corman’s Poe adaptations from the sixties, starring fan favorite Vernon G. Wells (Road Warrior, Commando). Thunderhead Entertainment has now released the first trailer, so come on inside and check it out.
A young man awakens alone on a remote beach, marooned there by a violent storm. Above the the rocky crags, a lighthouse stands like a sentinel. Injured and suffering from amnesia, the man seeks the help of Walsh, the enigmatic lighthouse keeper. Walsh tells him they are stranded until the ferry arrives in two weeks, and insists they are the sole inhabitants of the peninsula. But the man is haunted by fleeting glimpses of a beautiful young woman, and plagued by visions of hideous phantoms reaching out from the depths. As this horror tale races towards a mind bending finale, the man must confront the grotesque denizens of the night, or heed the lighthouse keeper’s cryptic warning to “Always keep a light burning!”
Starring Vernon G. Wells, Matt O’Neill, Rachel Riley, Monty Wall, Carl Edge, S. Daxton Balzer and John Spencer File, ‘Lighthouse Keeper’ is directed by Benjamin Cooper from a script by Carl Edge. Premiere and release dates for the film have not officially been announced at the time of this writing.
