EDGAR ALLAN POE'S LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER: Poster and Trailer
Here is something for all you Poe fans out there. Director Benjamin Cooper and writer Carl Edge have gone and adapted what has been considered Edgar Allan Poe's final and unfinished work, The Light-House Keeper. The original manuscript that Poe was writing was set up as a diary. Poe did not make it past Day Four before his death in 1849. The piece would inspire many authors to offer up their own 'finished' versions of the work throughout the decades to follow.
We have been directed towards a 'poster' and a trailer for Edgar Allan Poe's Lighthouse Keeper which will be distributed by ITN in North America during the first quarter of 2017.
In the movie, a young man awakens alone on a remote beach, marooned there by a violent storm. Above the the rocky crags, a lighthouse stands like a sentinel. The man seeks the help of Walsh, the enigmatic lighthouse keeper. Walsh 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!"LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER is based on Edgar Allan Poe's last story, "The Light-House," Scripted by Carl Edge, Directed by Benjamin Cooper (PRIMITIVE), and Executive Produced by Jeff Miller (CLOWNTOWN).The movie stars Vernon G Wells (MAD MAX 2: ROAD WARRIOR) in the titular role, Matt O'Neill (PRIMITIVE), Rachel Riley (8213: GACY HOUSE), Monty Wall (THE BRINK), S.
