Robert Eggers returns with his latest horror movie, The Lighthouse, starring Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe. When can you buy it on DVD and Blu-ray?
If the name Robert Eggers is familiar to you, there is a good chance you watched his previous A24 horror film, The Witch. Now Eggers is back with yet another chilling movie called The Lighthouse. The movie is already receiving tons of praise from critics who are truly blown away from the acting performances by stars Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe.
The plot of the movie is relatively simple. The Lighthouse is about two lighthouse keepers who live in relative isolation. They face some of their worst fears together and an unrelenting sense of dread and tension.
Another intriguing aspect of The Lighthouse is the fact the movie is filmed entirely in black and white. Critics have praised Eggers astounding directing talent. Many claim the atmosphere and suspense found in The Lighthouse build off of what was established in The Witch. Clearly, Robert Eggers is a force to be reckoned with.
Luckily for fans of the movie who want to purchase it on DVD, Blu-ray, or Amazon Video, you won’t have to wait too long. Most A24 movies make the leap from cinema to DVD in about two-three months. Midsommar came out theatrically in July and was recently released on DVD in October.
The Last Black Man in San Francisco and Under the Silver Lake took even less time with only about two months progressing between theater and physical distribution. We’re probably looking at an early January release date for The Lighthouse with a digital release as early as late December.
