The Lost Lighthouse Does Halloween

Check out some of the various lighthouse keepers with their half or whole assed Halloween costumes

 

NathThis year Nathan hosted a party in his new (ish) flat, going as Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Looks pretty good! He’s really nailed the look confused irritation Johnny Depp brought to the role.

 

 

 

 

 

 

wpid-2015-10-31-01.27.08.jpg.jpegAdam went as sort-of Mad Max from this year’s excellent Fury Road, heading along to a horror story anthology launch in a basement private club in East London. Because he is a pretentious parody of himself. This photo was taken later, full of whisky and hot wings.

 

 

 

 

GaryThis one is Gary as Rorschach from Watchmen, admittedly years ago and possibly not even at Halloween. But Gary doesn’t dress up very often, so whatever!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kit

 

 

And while this is a photo is a couple of years old, it is a fantastic (and actually horror relevant) zombie Spider-Man from Kit, from the Marvel Zombies comics. Looks pretty disgusting!

 

 

 

 

 

What did you dress up as this year? Let us know!

 

 

The Lost Lighthouse: The Weekly Rapture 48 – Rewatching the Watchmen

Welcome back to The Weekly Rapture, brought to you by The Lost Lighthouse.

This week we recorded in the same room! As a result this is probably the most rambling, tangential episode we have done in a very long time. And that is really saying something. We chat about all the cool teasers for the upcoming Jessica Jones Netflix series, the Back to the Future 30th anniversary celebrations, the talks about a Watchmen series on HBO, the excellent new title for Prometheus 2 and Transformers films coming out on a regular basis until you are a distant memory and the universe enters heat-death. We also talked about blue dongs and 2009 a lot, and waste about 10 minutes trying to remember the plot of Transformers 3.

Leading on from talking about Not-Prometheus 2, 3 and 4, and Transformers 5, 6, 7 and 8, this week’s main talking point (sort of) was how many directors and studios are announcing all their upcoming movies and sequels for the next 500 years, regardless of how good the first film was or how well it did.  Gone are the days when a film was written as a single, tight entity and then if a sequel was conceived of then it was green lit. Now we know every genre film coming out until 2020, which is simultaneously exciting, not exciting at all, and a terrifying reminder of our own mortality. What do you think about it? Let us know!
