The Lighthouse is a hypnotic and hallucinatory tale of two lighthouse keepers (Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson) on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s. As an approaching storm threatens to sweep them from the rock and strange apparitions emerge from the fog, each man begins to suspect that the other has become dangerously unmoored.
Principal photography for the movie began on April 9, 2018. Filming took place at Leif Ericson Park in Cape Forchu, and inside a hangar at Yarmouth International Airport, in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. The movie was shot on black and white 35mm film and released in theaters on October 18, 2019.
