Christopher Webster [Celluloid 07.20.09] movie trailer news horror thriller

The first thing that attracted me to Brad Watson's feature debut, Beacon77, was the intriguing poster which hints at something intense and cosmic going down in a London housing block. Then I noticed that the credits list Tim Wooster as the project's cinematographer.

DP's are rarely household names so you may have never heard of Wooster, but he's long been one of the best eyes in the business having worked second unit on Babylon A.D., Wanted and most recently two films I'm highly anticipating, Michael Basset's Solomon Kane and Stuart Hazeldine's dystopian thriller Exam.

Two young women arrive at a curious penthouse apartment, led by one’s crush on her tutor. However, her love interest doesn’t live alone. He’s part of a trio of computer hackers about to embark on the ultimate job on the world’s most mysterious mainframe. Whilst doing so, they unlock more than they bargain for with supernatural and ultimately fatal results.

Can this seemingly insignificant chain of events, which have thrown this group together, be construed as fate? Can the beacon provide a signal of hope or is it a web of manipulation, paranoia and ultimately... murder?

The film also stars a young cast of up-and-comers lead by Kelly Adams (Bronson, The Boxer). Beacon77 is currently in post-production.
