A family curse confines orphaned twins Rachel and Edwards to their home, in punishment for their ancestors' sins. Bound to the rules of a haunting childhood lullaby, the twins must never let any outsiders inside the house.
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.
As well as writing the movie David Turpin composed The Lodgers. See more »
Nude shots of Rachel show that her armpits and legs are shaven which was not the custom during that era. See more »
Equal parts dull and slow
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.
