October 14, 2020
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...
August 7, 2020
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.
July 6, 2020
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.
June 25, 2020
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.
June 24, 2020
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.
June 18, 2020
An expertly constructed horror film, more interested in the elliptical manipulation of moods than straight shocks to the senses.
June 11, 2020
[A]n icy nightmare that deserves to be among the essential horror titles of the year. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 10, 2020
It all adds up to a film that is more than the sum of the parts and a testament to the fact that sometimes you've just got to let film-makers make films, and not worry too much if they also managed to get it in writing.

The narrative doesn't end very well... but the conclusion is still dark, Machiavellian and above all, diabolical. [Full review in Spanish]
May 20, 2020
The Lodge's terror exists in the real world, it's happening right now- in the fanatically faithful, the cruelty of gaslighting, and the exploitation of peoples traumas.
May 15, 2020
I recognize The Lodge is an odd recommendation when a good chunk of the population is battling cabin fever. But you can approach it as a cautionary tale. A little personal space goes a long way.
May 11, 2020
One of the most terrifying adult and introspective offerings in recent years. [Full review in Spanish]
May 8, 2020
The Lodge is a sombre psychological thriller that leaves the viewers feeling as desolate as the landscape.
