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.

For a Low Budget British slasher - Very Well done!
19 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie has been unfairly critisied - mostly for being left on the shelf for almost 4 years (It was made in 1999 but didn't get a release until 2002/2003) The story is thrilling and imaginative, The actors were pretty good for this material,The direction and photography were nigh on excellent, It a lot better than some other recent slasher movies that have made it into the cinema. The story concerns a group of convicts and a Doctor trapped onboard a deserted lighthouse hundreds of miles from shore, where a serial killer is also in hiding... I rate this 8.5/10 (for showing what a good movie you can do with less than $2,000,000)
