I’ve seen The Beacon. It was one of the very first five or so films I reviewed for this site! Oh, the days (of only a year or so ago). Anyway, it’s terrible – but I had a lot of fun with it (especially the makeup at the ending). But we each find our own ways through terrible movies, clinging on to different scenes that, however so briefly, part the clouds. And that’s precisely the point The Wolfman (@TheWolfmanCometh – on the boards) aims to illustrate here in his column!
We’re going to, on occasion, start examining decent scenes in otherwise bad movies. And we hope you’ll come along for the ride! Head inside for his take on The Beacon! READ MORE
Teri Polo (Meet the Parents, The Hole) stars in the supernatural thriller Haunting at the Beacon, available on DVD September 13 nationwide at Walmart and other retailers for a SRP of $19.98. Winner of the Best Feature Film & Best Actress Awards at the Paranoia Film Festival (2009), the film also stars David Rees Snell (“The Shield”), Elaine Hendrix (the new “90210″), and genre vet Michael Ironside.
“While trying to get their lives back on track after the loss of their four-year-old son, Bryn (Teri Polo) and Paul Shaw (David Rees Snell) move to the charming old Beacon Apartments.
Bryn begins seeing a ghostly little boy skulking around the building and tries to uncover the details of the boy’s death. She hopes that freeing the child will allow him to carry a message to her son. Too late she realizes a second malevolent entity stalks the halls of the Beacon: one that doesn’t want the boy, or her, to escape.
Filmed at the haunted Rogers Hotel in Texas, The Haunting at the Beacon will make you wonder if you’re ever really alone.”
Extras include: Director / Producer Audio Commentary, Trailer, Upcoming Release Trailers and QR Code Link to True Story of the Haunted Rogers Hotel.
