‘The Lighthouse’ Gets New Trailer

Premiering today on YouTube, The Lighthouse has a chilling new trailer showcasing the suspense and despair of two men living in isolation.

In February 2016, Robert Eggers’ The Witch was released nationwide and shook audiences to the core with visceral imagery of a family living alongside a forest filled with witches in colonial New England. His latest feature is the story of two lighthouse keepers in 1890 who live on a remote island that must deal with loneliness, friendship and their deepest fears, including the uncertainty of how long it has been since they have been in the lighthouse.

The film stars Robert Pattinson (The Batman) and Willem Dafoe (Platoon, Shadow of the Vampire) as the two leads, Ephraim Winslow and Thomas Wake respectively.

Made using 35mm black-and-white film with camera and sound equipment from the 1920’s and 1940’s, The Lighthouse was written by Robert and his brother, Max Eggers.

After premiering at the Cannes Film Festival on May 19, the film has received acclaim from critics, currently holding a 93 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The Lighthouse shines into theaters on October 18.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
