The Lodge (2019)

As long as we recognize Lucas is washed up and most TV sucks, we'll all get along fine.

The Lodge (2019)

Post by Leisher »

Currently on Hulu

I'm going to do this without spoilers.

A man's fiancé is stuck in a remote cabin with his two kids. Soon strange shit starts to happen.

The story here is genuinely good. The problem is pacing and film length. This could have easily been an hour long episode of some horror anthology. Also, the film makers lie, a LOT, to the audience to make the film work.

The acting is really solid, but the film is so plodding that by the time you get to the end, you're mainly just happy it's finally over.

Oh, and this is not a feel good movie.
