Storyline

A prison ship on its way to a remote island prison runs aground on rocks and sinks. Mixed survivors of cons and prison guards struggle ashore, only to discover to their horror that another survivor has made it ashore before them. Murderous psychotic, Leo Rook, who not only had a hand in the ship's sinking but has decapitated all but one of the island's lighthouse crew. Stranded, with no means of escape or call for help, the survivors must face a night of terror as they know that since they've learned that Leo survived going down with the ship he can't let any of them live and is hellbent on adding their severed heads to his collection.

Not really sure what to make of this movie,
1 November 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't why but I got this for 50p the another day, so what the hell give a watch, thinking it haunted Light house.

It turns out it was more of slasher movie,

Well I don't know to really make out of this, it didn't hate but I didn't love either, i thougth it flowed,

There were some bloody deaths in this movie but I didn't find him scary at all but I did enjoy those very tense scenes were some were hiding from him.

If you may seem a little funny but the whole way to predicable, you know how the movie was going to end.
