"Lighthouse" was briefly released in theatres in March 2000, before ending up on video under the title Dead Of Night. Basically this is an excellent slasher film. Several very effective sequences between the killer and the victims make the film quite suspensful. The movie takes itself seriously unlike most of the current crop of "horror movies". The acting is passable and I liked the choice of setting and the way the film is generally set up. There is a decent amount of gore too. Lighthouse/Dead Of Night is worth a look ! It's like a British version of the 80's American slasher film only made in the late 90's after the genre became a joke and we all forgot horror movies can still be scary!
