Movie Info

1920, rural Ireland. Anglo Irish twins Rachel and Edward share a strange existence in their crumbling family estate. Each night, the property becomes the domain of a sinister presence (The Lodgers) which enforces three rules upon the twins: they must be in bed by midnight; they may not permit an outsider past the threshold; if one attempts to escape, the life of the other is placed in jeopardy. When troubled war veteran Sean returns to the nearby village, he is immediately drawn to the mysterious Rachel, who in turn begins to break the rules set out by The Lodgers. The consequences pull Rachel into a deadly confrontation with her brother--and with the curse that haunts them.

A near-miss for this hardcore horror and Gothic thriller fan. It tries to get underneath, but remains skin-deep.

As a ripe chunk of pure baroque atmosphere, this lushly staged costume chiller is a fragrant beauty indeed.

Finely attuned filmmaking.

Things creak in The Lodgers, a painfully genteel Irish horror movie haunted by the spirits of superior ghost stories.

Pretentious and pointless...

The Lodgers is an almost pornographically Gothic movie. If you adore this sort of stuff -- and I most certainly do -- you'll eat every inch of it.
