About the Movie
In this gothic horror tale, a family curse confines orphaned twins Rachel (Charlotte Vega) and Edwards (Bill Milner) to their home as punishment for their ancestors’ sins. Bound to the rules of a haunting childhood lullaby, the twins must never let any outsiders inside the house, must be in their rooms by the chime of midnight, and must never be separated from one another. Breaking any of these three rules will incur the wrath of a sinister presence that inhabits the house after midnight. While Edward is committed to this ill-fated life, he’s becoming more unhinged due to the fact that Rachel is not. Smitten by a local soldier (Eugene Simon), Rachel grows skeptical and begins to rebel, desperate to escape the oppression and misery of their captivity.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: 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.
Fresh: As a ripe chunk of pure baroque atmosphere, this lushly staged costume chiller is a fragrant beauty indeed.
Fresh: 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.
Rotten: 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.
Beautifully shot ghost story 👻 👻
Glad I caught this one at the Dread Central Presents previews a week before everyone else. This is not a straight forward horror movie. It’s more of a A24 type film. Beautifully shot and excellent performances by the main lead who is gorgeous and the guy from Game of Thrones.
Haunting and creepy
Very haunting and creepy gothic horror film that keeps you on edge from beginning to end. Performances are great and the lead actress is definitely amazing. Worth checking out.
Not a typical horror movie
Glad I saw this with friends. We were worried at start because some people in the group don’t like horror movies but the movie was deeper than that and there were only a few scary moments. Afterward we had a discussion. It’s the type of movie that stays with you. Definitely recommended! 👍👍
