Something in the water: The Lighthouse trailer brings the weird

Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe are alone, together, in the terrifying sophomore feature from The Witch‘s Robert Eggers – and the first trailer has just arrived online. Audiences at Cannes earlier this year reported that The Lighthouse is a mind-melting, and surprisingly funny, horror feature – but there seems to be more of the former than the latter on display here, as the two isolated men slowly lose the plot. Meanwhile, the striking monochrome cinematography recalls the best of silent cinema, including Carl Dreyer and F.W. Murnau.

The Lighthouse is scheduled to be released in the USA on October 18th.
