Lighthouse

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

eo Rook, the most feared man in Europe, escapes unnoticed from the prison ship Hyperion. Guided by the beam of a lighthouse he heads for nearby Gehenna Rocks. Once ashore, Rook kills the keepers and disables the lighthouse itself.





With no beam from the lighthouse to pierce the gathering fog, the Hyperion runs aground. Once safely on the island, the surviving prisoners and crew discover the bodies of the lighthouse keepers. Fear grips them as they realise that Rook is lying in wait for them, somewhere in the dark night.





Lighthouse is a dark, brooding nightmare, a descent into hell, set almost in real time over the course of one terrifying night.
