The Lighthouse *** UK July 8th

The Lighthouse’ is a historical Chiller based on the macabre true story of The Smalls Island Lighthouse tragedy.

‘The Lighthouse’ stars Michael Jibson (Saints & Strangers, Les Misérables, The Riot Club) and Mark Lewis Jones (Game Of Thrones, Master And Commander, Child 44)

The film follows Thomas Howell and Thomas Griffith’s disastrous posting to the Smalls Island Lighthouse to ‘keep the light’ 25 miles from land and surrounded by the deadly Irish Sea.

The men are stranded in a freak storm that rages for months, nothing short of an act of God. The film tells a tale of death, madness and isolation; a desolate trip into the heart of human darkness.

Made in collaboration with Ffilm Cymru Wales, the BFI , BBC Films, S4C, Edicis and Soda Pictures, Directed by Chris Crow (Devil’s Bridge, Panic Button, Viking: The Darkest Day) and produced by David Lloyd (Devil’s Bridge)

Shot in South Wales during 2014 with Post-Production completed in 2015 ‘The Lighthouse’ will be released in the UK on July 8th 2016 through Soda Pictures.
