On a desolate New England island in the 1890s, two lighthouse keepers battle the elements, menacing seagulls, spooky spirits and each other in Robert Eggers’ enthralling, evocative follow-up to the chilling period horror The Witch (CFF 2015). Ephraim Winslow (Robert Pattinson) is a damaged drifter hoping to get his life on track and earn enough money to settle down. He’s sent to work with Thomas Wake, a crusty old soak who gradually reveals himself as a petty tyrant who sees his charge as a slave. Winslow learns his predecessor was driven mad and has to resist the circumstances damaging his own sanity. MH
