Haunting at the Beacon movie scene

Teri Polo and David Rees Snell try to put their lives back together in Haunting at the Beacon.

The 2009 supernatural horror thriller film Haunting at the Beacon stars Teri Polo (Little Fockers) and David Rees Snell (TV’s The Shield) as Bryn and Paul, a couple trying to get their lives back on track after the loss of their 4-year-old son.

The pair moves into the seemingly charming old Beacon Apartments, but it’s not too long before Bryn begins seeing a ghostly little boy skulking around the building. Trying to uncover the details of the boy’s death and hoping he can carry a message to her own son, Bryn soon she realizes that a second and far more malevolent entity is also stalking the halls of the Beacon.

Haunting at the Beacon was filmed at the Rogers Hotel in Waxahachie, Texas, a building that has a reputation for being haunted. Eerily enough, the cast and crew reported that they experienced strange occurrences at the Rogers, beginning with writer/director Michael Stokes, who told stories wherein he heard of bed covers being pulled back, items being moved, sightings of strange orbs and even the sounds of children laughing and crying every night around 3 a.m.


The movie, which also stars Marnette Patterson (Wild Things Foursome), Elaine Hendrix (TV’s 90210) and horror veteran Michael Ironside (Terminator Salvation) is a disc premiere in the U.S., having not had a run in theaters.
