In what seems like a Mad Libs conjured straight from my subconscious, acclaimed horror manga artist Junji Ito drew an 8-page manga summary of A24’s black-and-white masterpiece in madness, The Lighthouse. The film was slated for release in Japan in 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the release to July 2021. The film stars Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson as lighthouse keepers, or “wickies,” who become trapped together after a vicious storm.
