Ep. 12: The Lighthouse

We are closing out Spooky October with this very dark film that stars two men and an aggressive number of seagulls. Below is your further reading for this week:

*This is a great short primer on the many perils of lighthouse life. If you’re interested in a fuller story, both we and the filmmakers relied heavily on this book.

*Why do we see dead people? This article, which we quoted from in the episode, provides few explanations but lots of food for thought.

*Read Poe’s full manuscript for The Lighthouse here – seriously, it won’t take long.

*Listen to some classic sea shanties used in the film as well as this spooky song about a haunted lighthouse!
