Madness ensues in new trailer for ‘The Lighthouse’

Madness ensues in new trailer for ‘The Lighthouse’”

A24 released a new trailer for The Lighthouse on Monday.

Robert Pattinson is set to become the new face of one of DC's biggest franchise heroes as the star of Matt Reeves' upcoming superhero solo film The Batman, while Willem DaFoe will reprise his role as mentor to Jason Momoa's Aquaman in the follow-up sequel to DCEU's first billion-dollar grossing movie about the underwater superhero. It's the kind of freaky maritime madness that earned raves when it debuted at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, where /Film reviewer Jason Gorber called it, "Perverse and preposterous, this brilliant film shines brightly, calling out with its haunting bellow to audiences fearless or foolhardy to plunge into the depths of this dastardly, primal tale".

The latest Lighthouse trailer begins with Thomas (Pattinson) inquiring about the last man assigned to help Ephraim (Dafoe) take care of the lighthouse situated on a craggy rock somewhere eternally gloomy.

"Keeping secrets, are ye?" the video description teases. By all accounts it's a masterpiece of a film according to those who have seen it at several film festivals already.

Robert Eggers launched himself on the psychological horror scene in 2015 with The Witch, combining period detail and sheer, creeping dread. Their synopsis only calls it a "hypnotic and hallucinatory" tale of the two lighthouse keepers.

This offers much contrast to Eggers' previous effort The Witch, which was more of a look at feminine spaces and sexuality.

Catch Robert Eggers' The Lighthouse when it hits theaters this coming October 18.
