In desperation at losing Eduardo, Lili carries out a ritual taught to her by a spiritualist to help bring him back, leading Lili to uncover a disturbing truth about her father’s disappearance


Kwakutl Films, LLC has released a promotional poster and teaser trailer for Widow’s Point, the upcoming supernatural thriller starring Craig Sheffer (Nightbreed, One Tree Hill). Based on the critically acclaimed book by New York Times bestselling author Richard Chizmar and his son Billy, the film was written for the screen and directed by cult filmmaker Gregory Lamberson (Slime City, Johnny Gruesome). Tamar Lamberson produced, with Chizmar and Erin Elizabeth Heald serving as executive producers.
Down on his luck author Thomas Livingston (Sheffer) spends a weekend locked inside a haunted lighthouse as a publicity stunt for a book he is writing about the murders, suicides, and disappearances which have occurred at the mysterious location over the course of a century. As he uncovers the lighthouse’s terrifying secrets, sinister forces drive him to the brink of madness and a confrontation with cosmic horror.
Katelynn E. Newberry and Dominic Luongo co-star as Livingston’s associates.  Kaelin Lamberson portrays Delaney Collins, the daughter of the lighthouse keeper in 1933, who faces the same Lovecraftian evil that targets Sheffer’s character in the present.  Willow Xylia Anwar, John Renna, Richard Satterwhite, Amy Hoffman, and Michael Thurber play supporting roles.
“The film takes place primarily in the present,” says director Lamberson, “with detours to 1933, 1987, and 2006. The focus is on Craig’s character, and we were lucky to get him as our lead because he delivered a real tour de force performance that people are going to remember.”
Widow’s Point filmed at various locations in Western New York last August, including the Dunkirk Historical Lighthouse and Veterans Museum Park. Associate producers include Armand John Petri, who co-composed the score with Joe Rozler; Kim Piazza, who plays Delaney’s mother; and Bruce and Vicki Liebowitz. The producers intend to screen the film at select festivals while pursuing distribution.

My Review Of Zom Com Series 'Bunkheads'

'Bunkheads' is a low budget Zom-Com about four people waiting out the zombie apocalypse in a desert bunker. It is currently streaming on Amazon Prime and stars Josh Covitt, Carly Turro, Khalif Boyd, and Chris O’Brien. 'Bunkheads', is a six-episode series directed by Lauren Klixbull

A group of four lovable goofballs: an oddball teacher, a floundering actress, a techie workout warrior, and an immature wannabe rapper. You may think the hordes of undead are the biggest threat during a zombie apocalypse, but annoying roommates can be almost as much trouble.

'Bunkheads' is a classic situation comedy series that aims for short bursts of quick witted humor and cheeky banter. It doesn't hit new ground but for a webseries with budget restraints, the series manages to be fun.

 There isn't a lot of time for full character development, but in the short episodes, about 12 minutes each, there is more than enough to make a connection with audiences. At times the fast paced back-n-forth feels clunky and some punchlines fall flat, but not to a level that hurts the overall entertainment of the series.

'Bunkheads' stays more comedy than horror. Most of the zombie portion of the story line stays subjective. Happening above the offbeat , somewhat mental survivors. There are a few quick moments with zombies, body parts, but for the most part the series is straight up shtick. It is worth checking out, It sits somewhere between the one where Adam Green is hard for Dee Snider, and the one with the haunted room for rent. Don't know there names, don't feel like googling. (3/5)
