Witch, The + Lighthouse, The

DOUBLE BILL! "Say, why is it bad luck to kill a gull?" Idiosyncratic director Robert Eggers declared his unique approach to filmmaking with his dread-soaked feature debut The Witch (a breakout Cinema Nova exclusive) in 2015 before hoisting his relentless monochromatic fever-dream The Lighthouse on audiences four years later. In anticipation of his latest assault on the senses, The Northman, we bring Eggers’ cult favourites back to the screen. Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe star as two lighthouse keepers stationed on a remote island far from home. Each harbouring their own fears and foibles, the elements soon drive them both to the edge of their sanity. Winner of multiple awards, Anya Taylor-Joy (Last Night In Soho) is one of five children who accompany their parents into the seventeenth-century New England wilderness with the hope of making a good Christian home. As their crops fail and a newborn child disappear, the family soon turn on one another.
