Robert Eggers had a breakout hit on the independent film circuit with the 2014 horror film The Witch. He appears to be ready to return to a different descent into the macabre with The Lighthouse, a black and white picture starring the new Batman Robert Pattinson and twice-in-a-row Academy Award-nominee Willem Dafoe.
The trailer reveals quite little about the story but with the cinematography and performances alone garnering critical praise, this seems like a worthy trip to the local cinema.
The Lighthouse hits select theaters on October 18th. What do you think of the trailer below?
