No One Lives Under the Lighthouse is a solid low-budget indie horror that aims a little too high with its gameplay mechanics.  They only happen in certain endings, and its short run time means any horror fan will gladly seek them all out.  At a $12 MSRP it is a no brainer if you enjoy getting the shit scared out of you.
