Check out the trailer and read more about the movie below.
Widow’s Point follows a writer who spends a weekend locked in a haunted lighthouse to help promote his next book, where he is targeted by Supernatural forces.
Richard Chizmar and Billy Chizmar wrote the original source novel; Gregory Lamberson adapted Widow’s Point for the screen.
The film had a successful festival run, including Shawna Shea Film Festival, where it won awards for Best Feature and Best Actor for Craig Sheffer, Crimson Scream Horror festival, where Craig also picked up Best Actor award; LUSCA Caribbean International Fantastic and Twin Tiers International, where the film picked up the Audience Award.
Widow’s Point was reviewed by Rue Morgue: “Sheffer contributes an outstanding display of on-screen insanity…an absolute thrill to witness.” Peter Straub, New York Times bestselling author of Ghost Story, Shadowland and Mr. X commented: “Greg Lamberson’s Widow’s Point offers what is very nearly a solo showcase to Craig Scheffer, who responds with bellows and rants, mutters and whispers, and otherwise by strutting his stuff through this lively horror cut-up.” and Delirium Magazine wrote: ‘’Lamberson unleashes what may be his finest work to date – at least, his most elegant and restrained.…embedded in a haunted-lighthouse yarn that creeps under the skin and stays there.”
