Bad luck to kill a sea bird.
Widely considered to be one of last year’s best genre films, The Witch director Robert Eggers‘ new movie The Lighthouse came home earlier this year, and now it’s headed to Prime.
The Lighthouse will begin streaming on Amazon Prime on April 16th!
The film stars Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson as two lighthouse keepers losing their grip on reality. A24 describes it as “a hypnotic and hallucinatory tale of two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s.” In other words, the perfect movie to watch while you’re stuck at home, self isolating and slowly losing your mind!
Serena Fischer reviewed The Lighthouse for us last year, calling it “a nightmare at sea.” She continued, “Whereas The Witch favored leaving more of the supernatural elements up to the viewers’ imaginations, The Lighthouse presents a montage of gothic-horror imagery coupled with a growing sense of cabin fever and isolation, at times akin to the closed-in atmosphere of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. The film’s tiny aspect ratio (1.19:1, to be exact) further adds to its sense of confinement, while its haunting sound design lends it a truly nightmare-like feel. This is certainly a film that will stick around in people’s heads for a long, long time.”
Other genre titles coming to Amazon Prime in April include I Am Legend on April 1st, Rambo: Last Blood on April 10th and standout sequel Paranormal Activity 3 on April 20th.
