Shortly after WW1, a young man arrives at a remote barren island far from civilisation in order to take up the post of weather observer for one year. On shore he finds no trace of the man he has come to replace, and the only other island inhabitant is the deranged lighthouse keeper who rants about an unseen horror. Retreating to his wooden cabin he settles in for the night, only to be besieged by dozens of nightmarish Lovecraftian creatures. Terrified, he tries to defend himself and so begins a living nightmare. Fanomenon favourite Xavier Gens (Frontieres, The Divide) brings this bestselling Spanish novel to the big screen.
