"What made your last keeper leave?" The answer to that question may be more murky than initially expected, as Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson go head to head amidst hallucinatory (or perhaps all too real) horrors in the new trailer for The Lighthouse, the anticipated second feature-length film from The Witch director Robert Eggers.

Directed by Eggers from a screenplay he wrote with Max Eggers, The Lighthouse stars Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson. A24 will release the film in theaters on October 18th.

Check out the new trailer below, and in case you missed it, you can listen to Eggers discuss the film with Ari Aster on an episode of The A24 Podcast.

Synopsis: "From Robert Eggers, the visionary filmmaker behind modern horror masterpiece The Witch, comes this hypnotic and hallucinatory tale of two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s."
