Trivia

The Fresnel lighthouse lens fabricated for the movie was a functioning and historically accurate reproduction, which, through its intense reflective capacity, allows light to be visible for 16 miles. Robert Eggers and cinematographer Jarin Blaschke discovered it during a research trip to Northern California. They visited Point Cabrillo, the site of a lighthouse dating back to 1909, featuring a working Fresnel lens. There is only one team, Dan Spinella, Lens Preservationist and Kurt Fosburg, U.S. Coast Guard Lampist, that manufacture the lenses today. The team worked with Production Designer Craig Lathrop who directed them to create the style lens he had envisioned. See more »

INTRIGUING...!!
23 November 2019 | by jazzy-08138See all my reviews

This movie had me on the edge of my seat and my nails are shorter than ever!! Yes, there were some slower parts, but they all required to understand the other parts of the movie. The music scores made it terrifying and the two actors did SUCH AN INCREDIBLE JOB that I could've watched this if it was a silent film. Robert Pattinson KILLED his role. Twilight who? I only know lighthouse. And can't wait for Batman now! !
