The Lodgers [Sub: Eng]
In this gothic horror tale, a family curse confines orphaned twins Rachel (Charlotte Vega) and Edward (Bill Milner) to their home as punishment for their ancestors' sins. Bound to the rules of a haunting childhood lullaby, the twins must never let any outsiders inside the house, must be in their rooms by the chime of midnight, and must never be separated from one another. Breaking any of these three rules will incur the wrath of a sinister presence that inhabits the house after midnight. While Edward is committed to this ill-fated life, he's becoming more unhinged due to the fact that Rachel is not. Smitten by a local soldier (Eugene Simon), Rachel grows skeptical and begins to rebel, desperate to escape the oppression and misery of their captivity.

Los Angeles Times
February 22, 2018 For viewers who take it more as a moody, metaphorical historical drama than as an out-and-out horror film, there's a lot in this lush-looking, sensitively acted picture to recommend.Read in Source
September 22, 2017 A near-miss for this hardcore horror and Gothic thriller fan. It tries to get underneath, but remains skin-deep.Read in Source
February 20, 2018 "The Lodgers" is never particularly scary, or even logical, but it's always gorgeous to look at; you can see where it's going, but you might not mind watching it go there.Read in Source
Film Journal International
February 22, 2018 Ends up feeling only like a bland and bloodless Crimson Peak, somewhat slight and wholly unsatisfactory.Read in Source
New York Times
February 22, 2018 For all the genre exertions, none of this feels the least bit spooky, including the digital ghouls that float in and the cobwebs that look as if they originated in a spray can.Read in Source
February 23, 2018 The Lodgers disappoints on a number of levels, many of which have more to do with the limitations of its creators' imagination than the apparently minuscule budget.Read in Source
February 22, 2018 The film's obsession with the concepts of family and fate cause it to leave unexplored some other interesting themes, like the encroachment of the 20th century on the European aristocratic class.Read in Source
February 22, 2018 Enough macabre interests to maintain an absorbing sit, but to reach a point of actual momentum, one must accept O'Malley's overly cautious handling of the feature's fright factor.Read in Source
