3 lighthouse keepers arrive on an isolated island of the Scott's coast
Each struggling to survive, as they are overcome by greed and paranoia Moves slow then fast then slow But continues to be entertaining
This was slow moving and I dozed a few times. The story line was good, however, I wonder how, being based on a true story, they even know what happened (if, as they said in the beginning, they all vanished without a trace)!
I found this movie very captivating and thought provoking. Loved the actors and acting. The story line was challenging my thoughts and the ending was surprising. I enjoyed the movie and made it part of my collection.
