Critic Consensus: Like many real-life long-term visitors, The Lodgers starts out with a modicum of mystery and excitement, but eventually overstays its welcome.

Critic Reviews for The Lodgers
The Lodgers disappoints on a number of levels, many of which have more to do with the limitations of its creators' imagination than the apparently minuscule budget.
For viewers who take it more as a moody, metaphorical historical drama than as an out-and-out horror film, there's a lot in this lush-looking, sensitively acted picture to recommend.
For all the genre exertions, none of this feels the least bit spooky, including the digital ghouls that float in and the cobwebs that look as if they originated in a spray can.
The film's obsession with the concepts of family and fate cause it to leave unexplored some other interesting themes, like the encroachment of the 20th century on the European aristocratic class.
"The Lodgers" is never particularly scary, or even logical, but it's always gorgeous to look at; you can see where it's going, but you might not mind watching it go there.
Audience Reviews for The Lodgers
Without spoilers, The Lodgers overall takes a format that I have seen a lot in the past couple of years, it's a schematic that I was never the biggest fan of in the first place, and The Lodgers certainly is not the best of the bunch that have approached this sort of material in recent times.
