From Robert Eggers, the visionary filmmaker behind modern horror masterpiece The Witch, comes this hypnotic psychological thriller of two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s. The men arrive on a remote island for a month-long stretch of maintenance and solitude, but mysteries abound: both men harbour secrets, strange visions and hallucinations appear, and when relief doesn’t arrive, their grip on reality starts to loosen. “A tall tale so thick with mood, atmosphere and detail that it will leave your bones rattled and your heart ablaze.”
Starring Robert Pattinson & Willem Dafoe.
