The Lodge is a 2019 American-British horror film directed by Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala, from a screenplay co written with Sergio Casci. It stars Riley Keough, Jaeden Martell, Lia McHugh, Alicia Silverstone, and Richard Armitage.
As close to a breakout as there seems to be among the disappointing crop of horror films in Sundance’s Midnight section this year Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala’s The Lodge extends the creepy domestic crisis tension of their 2014 Austrian debut Goodnight Mommy a bit further toward conventional chiller terrain. Once again children and a maternal figure are left in a social isolation that proves very bad for somebody’s perhaps everybody mental health, though this time the supernatural is also a possible factor.This movie scheduled to be released on 15-11-2019.
In October 2017, Riley Keough joined the cast of the film, with Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala directing from a screenplay they wrote alongside Sergio Casci. FilmNation Entertainment and Hammer Films produced and financed the film.
In February 2018, Jaeden Martell, Richard Armitage and Lia McHugh joined the cast of the film, with production beginning that same day. Katelyn Wells signed on to the film at the beginning of March 2018, and began work on the project the very next day.
In fact, there are too many explanations dangled here, to ends somewhat frustratingly contradictory rather than usefully ambiguous. That will irk mainstream horror fans, as will a pace that at times seems less slow burning than just plain slow. English language The Lodge is atmospheric and intriguing enough to appeal to more adventurous viewers. Still, it’s too much of a low-key mixed bag to repeat the significant popular success of tonally similar recent Sundance midnight like The Witch and Hereditary when Neon launches a U.S. theatrical release later this year.
