The Lodge Reviews

[T]he thing that haunted me the most about the film afterwards-aside from Riley Keough's choking screams in one particularly intense, symbolically loaded sequence-was the ludicrousness of its plot.

A truly unsettling movie, the kind of horror film that rattles you on an almost subconscious level.

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.
