There's little distinction to this formulaic horror enterprise.

Audience Reviews for Lighthouse (Dead of Night)

An ok UK made horror film. Very low budget but with some well known faces in it. Not that scary but I enjoyed it while it lasted.

I?m really surprised this isn?t discussed more when talking about great stalk and slash films.  Stylistic with great characters and a intimidating killer in an incredibly atmospheric location.  It?s not perfect, but most of these films aren?t, but fans forgive little flaws if the film is good overall.  I?ve gotta say, this is great overall.  Seek it out, it?s worth it.
