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.
The idea came for the film when David Turpin, used to imagine ghosts taking over his house at night when he went to bed. See more »
The road to the village shows fresh wear from tire treads, yet no vehicles are ever shown in the film. See more »
Classic Ghost Story
A beautiful ghost story about two siblings living in a decaying house around 1920. It's reminiscent of The House of Usher and if you like classic ghost stories like The Woman in Black (less cheesy jump scares) and Crimson Peak (also full of beautiful visuals, but less color and more texture based) then this is for you!
