"The Lighthouse" would make a great Broadway play.
You heard it here first.
Inestimable performances from Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe ramp up with excruciating suspense and terror.
You will squirm in your seat.
Just don't wet yourself.
Co-writer/director Robert Eggers conjures up all sort of fetish hay lurking in the troubled minds of two lonely lighthouse keepers on a New England island in 1890's America.
Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr's influence is all over this lush black and white film. You can't avoid falling under its woeful spell of looming horror.
A harsh game of master/servant plays out on a mythical level as a metaphor for how men relate in subtle and not-so-subtle games of oneupmanship.
Hold on tight; the worst is yet to come.
Rated R. 109 mins.
