If you are into horror movies, this is one of the movies that should be on your watchlist. Directed by Robert Eggers, The Lighthouse was very well received when it premiered at the Cannes Festival. The Lighthouse trailer just dropped in, and we cannot stop gushing over it.
The Lighthouse cast and release date
Starring Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe, the movie surely packs a punch. The duo widely appreciated for their performances in the movie.
It will be releasing in the States on October 18, 2019. This confirms the speculation that the movie will be released near or before Halloween.

The trailer does not give away anything particular about the story, and that is good — the duo eventually descent into madness. If you are only one who thinks that the movie resembles the time in the early 20th century, you are not wrong. Shot on a 35mm black and white film, it undoubtedly adds to the eery vibes one expects from a horror movie.
According to Vulture’s Rachel Handler, who saw the premiere at the Cannes,
He murders a seagull. He screams about wanting a steak so badly he would fuck it. He masturbates furiously to a mermaid figurine. And somehow, things get much, much weirder from there.
The Lighthouse trailer is just spectacular and leaves you wondering what in the world is wrong with the island.
It will be exciting to see how The Lighthouse will perform at the box office. Robert Eggers’ The Witch, despite critical applause, couldn’t connect to the mainstream audience and struggled to generate revenue.
