The film is set in the 1890s and follows two lighthouse keepers as they lose their minds, or something like that. The official plot details that have been released only describes it as a “hypnotic and hallucinatory tale of two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island,” although some of the interviews with Pattinson and Dafoe over the press tour has unveiled some of the more… fantastical elements the plot has to offer.
The reviews have been raving for the film, which marks another attention-worthy entry from The Witch director Robert Eggers. Indeed, it looks quite unique, and the trailer below does a nice job of setting up a bizarre, amusing and creepy tone. “WHAT?!”
Looking forward to this one. The Lighthouse will be hitting US cinemas on October 18.
