'The Lighthouse' Trailer 2 Features New Batman Robert Pattinson

Willem Dafoe looks stark, raving mad, and while Robert Pattinson's character appears to be the saner one, he does indulge Dafoe's character in a dialogue merely comprising of the word "What", which will leave you scratching your head and saying "What?" under your breath.

Willem Dafoe, Robert Pattinson, and Valeriia Karaman star in the film, directed by Robert Eggers. Check out the new trailer below.

The Lightouse premiered at this year's Cannes Film Festival and recently screened at Tiff.

Today we've got a new trailer for the film, and it's somehow even more sinister than the last one.

Rory O'Connor said in his review, "For all its finely considered dread, the reason Robert Eggers' ungulate-deifying debut The Witch made such a cultural mark had far more to do with its sense of mischief".

"Keeping secrets, are ye?"

All in all, Eggers has seemingly managed to up the ante on his use of both atmospheric tension and minimalism to evoke some truly unsettling results.

Filmed in 35mm black-and-white stock equipment from the 1920s and 1940s, The Lighthouse tells the story of two lighthouse keepers who must tend to a lighthouse on an isolated and mysterious New England Island in the 1890s. There re also films created to get a strong reaction from its audience, but that many people wouldn't be willing to give their time to in the first place.

The Lighthouse comes to theaters in NY and Los Angeles on October 18 before expanding nationwide.
