This one is not an easy go. It is NOT a horror film. It is a psycho-sexual character study. . Dafoe and Pattinson are both amazing. The look of the film is like visual poetry. This is an art film surrounding a spiral of madness.

If you're a big fan of Marvel/Disney/DC movies, don't see this.

In a word - genius. (Not a "horror" flick and not for casual movie-going.)

Very uncomfortable movie. Good acting but poor plot

It was incredibly shot and left me feeling strange. You’ll understand the feeling it gave once you see it. It is in standard definition and black and white through out the entire movie. The story behind it was confusing but they may want you to watch it a few times to get the whole picture.

Dark, haunting, thought provoking and oddly funny. The acting is awe inspiring while the characters challenge the viewer to think deeply on what it all means.

I understood the movie but it wasn't for me. It was well shoot and the effects were nice but that's all I liked.

The Lighthouse stands as a monument to two titanic performances. Pattinson’s easy naturalism curdles into something unnerving and evil here, while Dafoe goes full German Expressionist villain with the biggest screen performance since Daniel Day Lewis in There Will Be Blood.

The Lighthouse is a ferocious battle of wills, a tour de force of cold, clammy suspense and a protracted descent into cabin-fever madness. It is also a gorgeous piece of film craft, a chance to savor the visual glories of a bygone era of cinematic artisanship.
