The trailer of Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson starrer The Lighthouse is out. The Robert Eggers directorial created a flutter when it debuted at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. Dafoe and Pattinson play the role of two lighthouse keepers.

The trailer does not reveal much about the plot. The upcoming film is shot in black-and-white and is described as a psychological horror set in 1890’s New England. It surely seems like a horror film with some mind blowing and disturbing imagery.

It appears Willem Dafoe’s character is a grizzled old hand and Robert Pattinson is also a recruit. We also see Thomas Wake (Dafoe) accusing Ephraim Winslow (Pattinson) of keeping secrets.

“Why’d ya spill yer beans,” Wake asks nobody in particular. Winslow appears to be working towards digging a hole. Burying a body, perhaps? A scene has the duo trying to face a storm. We also get to see Winslow wading in darkness through chest high water, looking upset.

There is an appearance of a strange and weird creature in the ocean. We also see tentacles of an underwater monster. In one scene, the two characters can be seen trying to strangle each other, in another scene, they seem fine and embracing.

The trailer is eerie and confusing. The trailer has a lot of uncanny images, but little explaination behind them about their significance. Even the conversations are a little misleading. This is definitely not like any run-of-the-mill horror movie.

The Lighthouse has been praised by critics from all over the world, gaining a 98 per cent score at Rotten Tomatoes. The consensus goes, “A gripping story brilliantly filmed and led by a pair of powerhouse performances, The Lighthouse further establishes Robert Eggers as a filmmaker of exceptional talent.”

The Lighthouse will be ready to hit US screens on October 18.
