ReelViews - James Berardinelli
The high production values, excellent acting, and strong writing make this a cut above what is often accorded this sort of release pattern. For those intrigued by the material, it’s worth seeking out.

The Hollywood Reporter - Frank Scheck
Based on real-life events, The Lighthouse depicts its dramatic situations in credible and compelling fashion. But its single, cramped setting and leisurely pacing could definitely tax the patience of horror fans looking for a more visceral, scare-laden experience.
60
Los Angeles Times - Noel Murray
The Lighthouse builds to a tragic incident and its disturbing aftermath, depicted with the dread and sick irony of an old “Tales From the Crypt” comic. But for the most part, the fears here are social, not supernatural.
50
Film Threat - Unnamed
The Lighthouse doesn’t shed anything new on the pressure cooker, psychological drama, but it is a pleasure to see Crow’s talents continuing to evolve from Demon Bridge to now.
50
Variety - Guy Lodge
Economically deployed effects lend the gathering storm a genuine sense of anxious bluster, but tension and terror are harder to conjure in a narrative this sparse and emotionally one-note.
