The new film from the Goodnight Mommy directors frustrates more than it unnerves.
February 8, 2019
With the chilly setting, how the camera moves through the home, and how inner demons threaten to consume a family, it's reminiscent of The Shining. It's a relentless, mind-bending nightmare in which the threat of demons from one's past are always lurking.

It is like living in the delirium created by a chill, and it's in that very daze where truly wicked thoughts can fester.

A truly unsettling movie, the kind of horror film that rattles you on an almost subconscious level.
February 4, 2019
There's genuine fear in Keough's performance as a damaged woman grappling to contain her trauma before it destroys them all, but the movie places too much faith in her ability to carry the material through its aimless of cycle of freaky outbursts.

English-language "The Lodge" is atmospheric and intriguing enough to appeal to more adventurous viewers.

Arthouse horror chalks up another win in this claustrophobic family drama.

This film will unsettle you in the moment and leave you thinking about the repercussions of grief, violence, blind faith and manipulation long after the credits roll.

A definite slow-burn that grows darker by the minute, and it commits to that grim progression. Proceed with caution.

Franz and Fiala have crafted a bone-chilling film that's a slow burn, its icy flames illuminating the dark crevices of human behaviour, resulting in a work not easily forgotten.
January 30, 2019
An icy cold mix of The Shining and religious mania run wild, The Lodge opens with a bang, and never lets up. Take it from someone who doesn't scare easy: The Lodge is scary as hell.

Fiala and Franz know how to draw out the unease through environment, in this case creating a sleepless atmosphere though the low light flowing into their snowbound setting.

As a psychological down-is-up horror movie, The Lodge has a few solid tricks up its sleeve. But when the smoke and mirrors clear, it's ultimately a story about trauma, and a rather bleak one at that.
January 28, 2019
While the filmmakers' control of mood, menacing atmosphere and unsettling spatial dynamics remains arresting, their story sense grows shaky in a chiller that starts out strong but becomes meandering and repetitive.
January 28, 2019
As a bitter commentary on family, truth, trust, and above all, the religion, The Lodge is a serviceable mood piece that ends up leaving you feeling cold, and not in a good way.
January 28, 2019
As an exercise in stark atmosphere with a winning streak of nasty, blasphemous subtext, there's enough here to at least keep curious minds occupied as to what depths of depravity the film is willing to traverse.
January 27, 2019
White-knuckle, elevated horror. This year's HEREDITARY.
January 26, 2019
This nightmare-inducing thriller is as unsettling as they come, a wildly unpredictable story that misdirects in a way that doesn't annoy.
