Edgar Allan Poe's "Lighthouse Keeper" - Trailer

Inspired by Poe's unfinished story 'The Light-House'

Thunderhead Entertainment LLC just released the official trailer for LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER in time for the market in Cannes. Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's unfinished work, a young man awakens alone on a remote beach, marooned there by a violent storm. Injured and suffering from amnesia, the man seeks the help of Walsh, the enigmatic lighthouse keeper. Walsh tells him they are stranded until the ferry arrives in two weeks, and 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.
