Robert Eggers’, The Lighthouse, is a psychological sexually-charged maritime tale that will have you squirming in your seat. Davy Jones’ Locker unleashes hell onto an old lighthouse keeper by the name of Thomas Wake and his clandestine new wickie, Ephraim Winslow, in a film that meshes greek mythology with 1890s America. But screaming sirens and tantalising tentacle creatures are no match for the monsters embedded within the human psyche.
