Exclusive Look at Edgar Allan Poe’s Lighthouse Keeper


The tales of Edgar Allan Poe have been giving people the shivers for many years, and I’m sure they’ll be doing that for as long as people possess the ability to read. Next up is an adaptation of his terror tale Lighthouse Keeper. Read on for all sorts of goodies.

Vernon G. Wells, Matt O’Neill, Rachel Riley, Monty Wall, Carl Edge, S. Daxton Balzer, and John Spencer File star in this Benjamin Cooper-directed film.

A young man awakens alone on a remote beach, marooned there by a violent storm. Above 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!”
