Compared with old Hammer horror films, there is more atmosphere, but the same or less character development. While not quite up to Hammer's LET ME IN or THE WOMAN IN BLACK, it has its moments.

The Lodge may be mostly set in the great outdoors it is, nonetheless, a claustrophobic thriller that plays on dark psychological trauma.

A one-way road trip to atmospheric terror.

Irredeemable shite. "The Lodge" is a mean-spirited, ignorant assault on Cinema, and on its audience.

I could not wait for this movie to end, but then I am not a fan of this sort of movie anyway. It is a particularly bad viewing choice on a cold, snowy winter's night when I am feeling isolated by a deadly pandemic.

Perfectly paced, each film places viewers in purgatory along with the protagonists.

A deliberately ambiguous and paranoid work, provoking the audience not only to speculate on each character's motivation but what precise kind of a thriller the film is.

The most bone-chilling developments come not from the supernatural but from the human psyche, and the bleak ironies may stick with you long after watching.

I feel like [the storyline's] completely original and completely well-thought-out.

The Lodge suffers from an exceedingly (and excessively) deliberate midsection that pushes the slow-burn aesthetic well past its breaking point...

this new spin on old fairy tales tropes is loaded with great performances, fun jolts, and unexpected surprises

Chilling in its constant ambiguity, Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala's film thrives in keeping the viewer in a perennial state of suspicion over the characters' motives.

The Lodge is the latest high brow horror delight with a hard focus on characters who are very uncomfortable around each other. Add in a dash of religious cult repression and you got yourself a solid horror flick in the vein of The Shining and The Thing.

The pacing of The Lodge is meant to bring a slow burn to its suspense, but the movie seems to forget there's really no suspense at all to this story and its inevitable ending.

Its terror is a slow, methodical, building dread that seeps into your bones and lives within you, like a bad memory you can't forget.

The Lodge holds firm on its promise of a psychological horror, throwing the audience right into a mind-bending story that will have you as shaken as its characters.

If there's a reason to watch The Lodge, it's Keough, who resists the urge to go Full Collette in her depiction of spiraling despair. It's a controlled performance in a film that tries its very best to push her into hysteria.

Artfully contracted and meticulous to the point where it loses any feeling, The Lodge ultimately mires down in its own brooding, like its stuck in a snowdrift.

It's a feel bad film that is still absolutely mesmerizing and you can't stop watching every minute of it until the shocking climax of the film.

An expertly constructed horror film, more interested in the elliptical manipulation of moods than straight shocks to the senses.
