Average thriller
11 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A rare Hammer film not available commercially now. It's an average quality black and white production about criminals taking over a light house on an island. The title refers to that light being put out. The lighthouse crew think they are rescuing survivors of a sunken boat. These are bank robbers trying to escape, and a conflict ensues. The story develops in flashback style, when a passing yacht discovers what looks like an abandoned lighthouse. They investigate and find it deserted. Then the film shifts to a previous day (without making that clear to the viewer) and we see what happened. It's an interesting location and theme, and is adequately produced, but not an important film.
