Dead of Night (Lighthouse) Awsome unknown horror/thriller!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A ship carrying prisoners and guards are heading for the mainland when I sadistic, brutal mass murderer by the name of Leo Rook, kills and escapes by rowboat to a near by lighthouse inhabited by three workers. He kills them and cuts the power, in which the boat hits bottom and sinks, with only a doctor, three prisoners and three others survive.
Only until they start finding bodies they find out about Rook from the doctor and all fear they are going to die.
I don't want to go into more detail to spoil it for you, but the bathroom seen and the ending really put this movie over the top and the ending had my mouth almost to the floor in disbelief!!
This movie is probably the best dvd I have bought sight unseen yet, but be warned now that the movie is pan and scan and the quality of picture and sound in parts is inferior at best.
But it is going to be the only version that is going to be made of this film and to me it is still worth buying.
Marks on dvd:

Picture:2.5/5
Audio:2.5/5
features:1/5
Movie:10/5!!!!!!!!

p.s. This movie is from 1999 from England I think.

Dead of Night review

It may not be an original film, but I completly do not agree with negative review.
It has been a long time since I have been so hyped about a movie since I have seen Argento's Susperia.
This movie should still be checked out anyways IMO.
