The ghost story starring Teri Polo
Ready to start circulating through the film fest circuit this year is The Beacon and today writer-director Michael Stokes dropped in on ShockTillYouDrop.com with a few pics to share. He also tells us the flick has just been accepted into Long Beach’s Paranoia Horror Festival running March 13-15.
Stokes’s directorial debut (he penned and produced the actioner Exit Speed), The Beacon was shot in Waxahachie, Texas in a building he describes as a “real-life haunted hotel.” The cast includes David Rees Snell, Michael Ironside and Elaine Hendrix. Leading lady Teri Polo plays a grieving woman who begins to see the ghost of a young boy who died in her apartment complex. A mystery ensues when she tries to lock down the cause of the boy’s death and attempts to save his spirit. You can watch a trailer here.
We’ll keep you posted on release date news when it comes in.
