Beacon Point: Uncork’d Entertainment Acquires Distribution Rights
Beacon Point: Eric Blue’s Thriller
Title: Beacon Point
Director: Eric Blue
Writer: Eric Blue, Traci Carroll
Zoe has quit her job to hike the Appalachian 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 he has 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.
Beacon Point has been picked up by Uncork’d Entertainment for distribution. The highly anticipated Sci-Fi, Thriller is written and directed by Eric Blue and Traci Carroll and is produced by Blue Lantern Films.
It follows a group of hikers who gets lost on the Appalachian Trail and stumble across an ancient secret that threatens their survival.
The Beacon Point trailer is a bit confusing. It talks of a mysterious legend, an ancient secret, and the Cherokee tribe, and “Shadow People”, and if it wasn’t for the trailer, I would have insinuated that it was a well known legendary creature like Bigfoot, Sasquatch, or the Abominable Snowman.

However, the synopsis and trailer identify unseen forces, which makes me think of evil spirits, or the film being an advocate of the supernatural or extraterrestrial. One thing is for certain; that it doesn’t highlight what the “force” is at any point, so it’s hard to determine what path the film is taking.
There has not been a confirmed date as of yet, but Beacon Point will is slated for a 2017 release. Stay tuned for more information.
