Keough's work is so strong, so effective, that by the time we learn the ultimate fate of Grace, we would have bought into any of the possible options.

While The Lodge isn't as hearty as the horror films it desperately wants to emulate, the filmmakers have concocted a heavy stew of emotions, left on a low simmer.

If "The Lodge" doesn't answer all the questions it poses, that's okay. Its strength lies in its ability to stir a reaction, and that feeling lasts longer than its explanations. It's a trip you won't forget.

February 7, 2020
The causes of the strange happenings in The Lodge, when revealed, are deflating.

I am not sure The Lodge is more than a system of scares, barely holding together: I don't think the movie satisfies.

The Lodge is more disturbing than scary, with its eerie ambiance and chilling plot handling most of the scares.

The key to her insidious and frightening performance is that by the end you're not sure whether to fear her or fear for her.
