The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

robert eggers is really tapping into some classic gothic horror tropes in this like....making the film black and white to create a bleak and chilling atmosphere....using regular sounds (boat horn, sailor songs etc) against us to increase tension.....the crippling claustrophobia of being stuck in a spooky lighthouse on a small island surrounded by the dark and unforgiving ocean that seems to go on forever....... but.......who ever said being on land was any safer? ๐Ÿคญ
