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.

They spelled Loggers wrong
25 February 2018 | by iamtherobotmanSee all my reviews

Well the synopsis of this sounded great, it sounded interesting and intriguing.

Sadly, they then decided to make the film, and what sounds good in type sadly failed to translate into action. It's a lovely big house, nice quaint setting, seems authentically period in dress and mood and then the story starts and it all goes to pieces which is a real shame as this could have potentially been a good film had they made it half as good as the written synopsis.

The pacing was so slow that it finished third in a two horse race, there simply wasn't enough story to beef it up and at times it just seemed lost in a vortex of nothingness. It took so long to get to the punchline that honestly, by the time it got there i'd forgotten the build up and didn't really care what the punchline would be.

It was beautifully shot, atmospheric shadows and lighting throughout, nice use of angles and perspective and for the material they were dealt, the cast done a not bad job of carrying it out but it just seemed like it was trying too hard to be a 'feels' filled film with a hint of horror and mystery thrown in but the story was so bland that any hint of mystery was lost, it just didn't intrigue the way it obviously wanted to.

No doubt we'll have some 'Luvvies' drooling over this, calling it 'genre defining' or some such nonsense but in reality it just isn't and I for one am quite disappointed at that fact.
