This movie is quite well acted. Rae Olivier, the lead actress turns in a heart-felt performance as Zoe. She can be angry, seductive, and even produce real tears. Several elements of this movie remain a mystery right up until the final scene. You see them and wonder what they mean, and then it wraps up perfectly in a stunning turn of events that leaves you wanting to know more. There is definitely room for sequels here and I'd watch them if they are ever made. You can view the trailer here: Beacon Point trailer
Take a trip to Beacon Point this May when the highly-anticipated science-fiction thriller lands on VOD via Uncork'd Entertainment.
The film, called "an intelligent and interestingly innovative inferno of horror, science fiction, folklore, and thrills," hails from talented newcomer, Eric Blue.
Zoe has quit her job to hike the Appelachian Trail as a tribute to her deceased father. She joins a small group of inexperienced hikers for an adventure of a lifetime. The group is Dan, recently divorced and looking for a change from Silicon Valley, Cheese, a 17-year-old kid, and Brian, his half brother that he just met. They are led by Drake, a hot-headed trail master with a questionable past. They are upbeat as they set out on the ten-day trek through the Great Smokey Mountains. Drake leads them away from the main trail and the tourists, promising a grand adventure and sights they'd never see with the standard tour. After a gruesome discovery, they become lost deep in the mountains. The adventure spins out of control when they are terrorized at their campsite by an unseen force.
Rae Olivier, Jon Briddell, Eric Goins, Jason Burkey, and RJ Shearer star in this Eric Blue film written by Blue and Traci Carroll.
