Audience Reviews for The Beacon

Borrowing heavily from "The Sixth Sense", almost everything that "The Haunting at the Beacon" does well toward the beginning is ultimately undone by its unfortunate, cornball ending. With twists coming a mile a minute, only the most forgiving audiences will accept every impossible turn.

Felt like a made for TV schlock fest. Painfully bad writing and acting. Full of plot holes and cheap special effects. Basically a complete waste of time for anyone over the age of 15.

Super Reviewer

The film really did have a good creepy feel to it. It can leave the viewer feeling somewhat scared and it does get better near the end. The movie is also very suspenseful and leaves you waiting till the very end to see what the heck is going on. All the acting was pretty good, especially from Teri Polo who had the main role. Most of the story seemed to fit but certain things were placed in the film that really didn't need to be there. One scene had to do with Marnette Patterson's character near the end. Also there was about two or so minutes at the end of the movie that didn't need to be there. They couldn't of stopped at one point, but they had to take it just a little farther and to me it seemed like it almost ruined it. The film was decent but I did want more out of the scare factor.
