Trivia

The movie is set in 1890 and was filmed on 35 mm black and white Double-X 5222 film stock, augmenting the Panavision Millennium XL2 camera with vintage Baltar lenses designed in the 1930s. To enhance the image, making it resemble early photography, a custom cyan filter made by Schneider Filters that emulated the look and feel of orthochromatic film from the late 19th century was used.

A remake of a remake
11 June 2019 | by akon2002See all my reviews

While I do consider Willem DaFoe a great actor I cant see him acting across from Robert Pattinson . This movie very closely resembles " Cold Skin " a 2017 film about an old lighthouse keeper and a young lighthouse keeper sent to replace him , the former captured a mermaid and keeps her prisoner in the lighthouse until all the mer-people arrive to kill the men and recover the mermaid hence Cold Skin . I'm not saying this DaFoe movie is a direct remake I'm just saying watch Cold Skin first and never watch this one .
