Widow’s Point – Thriller
Category – Movie
Content – Writer Thomas Livingston has been researching the mysterious happenings surrounding a lighthouse on Widow’s Point. To further his research, he decides to lock himself in the lighthouse for a weekend and document the event. With his publicist and computer tech watching on, he begins his weekend. As he recounts the research he has read, we get several stories depicting many eras of the sinister lighthouse. Quickly the camera feed disappears, and then soon after the audio. Blind to anything happening, the publicist and computer tech wait for the weekend to be over. But, inside the lighthouse is a different story for Thomas. The sinister ghosts from the past play with his mind until he becomes completely insane. For Thomas, days and days go by while the ghosts haunt and terrorize him every minute. The key is – will Thomas ever make it out of the lighthouse? This scores a 8 out of 10.
Acting – The movie focuses on Thomas Livingston, played by 80’s star Craig Sheffer. The acting is really about Craig, going from sane writer to insane man. The transformation progresses throughout the film, and Craig does a remarkable job. His acting deserves applause, as you find yourself really hoping he makes it out of the lighthouse alive (and sane). Score is 9 out of 10.
Duration – 88 mins. To watch the transformation of a man from sane to insane should be quick to keep the audience engaged. So under 90 minutes is good for this genre of film. This gets a 7.5 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for Widow’s Point – 24.5 out of 30
Recommended Watch – If you are a fan of supernatural films OR Craig Sheffer like I am, then watch his incredible acting in this film. I think anyone would agree with me that this 80’s star still has his acting chops!
