Storyline

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.

Trivia

The basic plot has many similarities to Edgar Allen Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher" (1939), for example: three main characters, a sister and brother, and a young man; the remote dilapidated manor-like house, incestuous relationships (spanning generations), the brothers sick appearance, suggestions of an unnamed "curse", and the sibling's life being connected to the house.

Goofs

Closeups of Rachel's hands clearly shows she's had a recent manicure and that she also uses clear nail polish. Neither would be likely for a financially struggling young woman in post-WW1 Ireland. See more »

Equal parts dull and slow
1 June 2018 | by jmix66See all my reviews

Gothic apparently equals dull in the minds of the filmmakers who created this yawner.

Blah blah blah Ireland. Blah blah blah Ghosts Blah blah blah Something happens. Unfortunately for the viewer that something is 85 minutes after you stopped caring. Could have been a lot better if it had been a lot faster paced and scarier. It isn't and it wasn't.
