Filmmaker Gregory Lamberson presents the Dunkirk-Fredonia area premiere of his latest feature-length film, Widow’s Point!
Widow’s Point is the story of a down-on-his-luck author (Craig Sheffer) who spends a weekend locked in 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. As he uncovers the lighthouse’s terrifying secrets, sinister forces drive him to the brink of madness. Roughly one-third of the movie was filmed at the Dunkirk Lighthouse in 2018.
The supernatural thriller stars Sheffer (Nightbreed, One Tree Hill) and is based on the critically acclaimed book by New York Times bestselling author Richard Chizmar and his son, Billy. It was adapted for the screen and directed by Lamberson.
At the Opera House, Lamberson will introduce the film and lead a panel talk-back following its screening. Panelists will include Lamberson, film co-star Kaelin Lamberson, score composer Armand Petri and the Dunkirk Lighthouse’s Dave Briska.
Lamberson was born in Gowanda, but raised in Fredonia. He has directed or produced more than a dozen films, and written a dozen books including Johnny Gruesome, which was made into a film and released this past October. Widow’s Point will be out in limited release in late August and will be screened at a Film Festival in Virginia at the same time.
The Opera House screening will serve as a benefit for both the Dunkirk Lighthouse and the Opera House.
Tickets will be available at the door only.
