Actor: Robert Pattinson

The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse

From Robert Eggers, the visionary filmmaker behind modern horror masterpiece THE VVITCH, comes this hypnotic and hallucinatory tale of two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s.

“Seeps into your bones with the chill of the sea wind…You’d have to search hard to find a movie this hypnotic and haunting.” (Rolling Stone)

“The actors play it big and bold in a visually striking, black and white horror show.” (Chicago Sun-Times)

“Robert Pattinson is superb, but it’s Willem Dafoe who emerges as a giant with a towering, unforgettable performance.” (Detroit News)

“One of the year’s best films. Surreal, powerfully acted, and proves that Robert Eggers is one of the premiere arthouse horror directors working today.” (GenreVision)
