From Robert Eggers, the visionary filmmaker behind modern horror masterpiece The Witch, comes a tale of two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s who are faced with solitude, but start to lose their sanity and become threatened by their worst nightmares. Shot in shimmering 35mm black and white with a daring and intense aspect ratio, The Lighthouse is brilliant, original and distinctive.
‘★★★★★ The Lighthouse is a folk tale, a black comedy, a horror, a mystery, a (platonic?) romance — and something more still, something unspeakable. Something like a masterpiece, perhaps.’ - John Nugent, Empire
‘★★★★★It is explosively scary and captivatingly beautiful in cinematographer Jarin Blaschke’s fierce monochrome, like a daguerreotype of fear. And the performances from Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson have a sledgehammer punch.’ - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
