“Despite its few flaws, the film never feels cheesy or unwatchable, rather it measures up as an enjoyable viewing that, while not particularly scary, is definitely a well-done psychological twister. Artfully created and with some superb acting and beautiful scenery, Dark Beacon is an intriguing film offering.” Jeannie Blue, Cryptic Rock
