‘The Lodge’ is a 2019 horror/ thriller starring Riley Keough (Mad Max: Fury Road), Alicia Silverstone (Clueless), Jaeden Martell (IT), Richard Armitage (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey), and Lia McHugh (Totem). Two kids are stuck in a cabin with their future mother in law for a couple of days once their father is forced to leave for the city due to work. The kids are bitter over their mothers own death, and blame their future mother in law. Now being snowed in and stuck with her, they’re unsure they will survive.
‘The Lodge’ starts off with a bang, literally. After that however it is a drag for a solid 50 minutes where nothing happens, to the point where I almost fell asleep during it. After that though the movie takes off and is non stop, it has you on the edge of your seat filled with WTF moments. In that aspect it’s a great horror movie, if it wasn’t for the solid 50 minute lag I would score it higher, but I have to give it a 6.5/10.
