The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse ★★★½

I've always heard great things about this movie from horror fans. It even made it to some of their lists for favorite horror movies from 2019. I had been wanting to see it, so I was pretty excited that Amazon Prime started streaming it. It took me a little while to get around to it, but I knew I would eventually.

As a horror movie, I was rather disappointed with it. As a period piece, this was amazing. I was surprised that this is a black and white movie, which can sometimes bug me but it didn't this time around. I thought it helped set the mood really. I haven't been a big fan of Robert Pattinson, but I thought he did an excellent job here. Reading some of the trivia shows that a lot of work went into this movie to make it a period piece, which included the actors learning the accents of that time period. I was enjoying the movie just listening to them talk to each other.

This is a very good movie, but I did enjoy The Witch a lot more.
