Trivia

Four different lighthouses were used to create what is seen in the movie as a singular location: Mull of Galloway lighthouse was used for Exterior and interior cottages, lighthouse, lighthouse garden and the headland of the island. Killantrigan lighthouse was used for its interior staircase and side garden. Corsewall lighthouse was used for a single interior shot and to create the cliff for many of the cliff scenes. Cloch lighthouse was used for the interior lightroom as it is no longer operational, yet beautifully preserved. See more »

The dog on the island disappears during all fight scenes and also during any scene in which an additional surprise human being appears on the island. See more »

Worth a Watch
9 January 2019 | by smasher-88535See all my reviews

Not a bad slow burning atmospheric thriller,keeps you guessing,creepy and as I say atmospheric,two great actors in Peter and Gerrard carry it along keeping you waiting to see what goes wrong,only one piece of real action mid way through the movie but this film was more about creepy atmosphere than anything,I found the ending a slight disapointment but im sure many wont mind it,it could of ended a number of ways I suppose being loosley based on a real event,give it a go if you like creepy and claustrophaubic settings....
