Episode Info: The Lodge is a movie that is heavy in tone and aesthetic, that went to great lengths to disguise the danger and keep the audience guessing as to what or who may be behind the nefarious details of the story.

We have the Hall family, who are a fractured family of four, father Richard (Richard Armitage), mother Laura (Alicia Silverstone), older son Aiden (Jaeden Martell), and younger daughter Mia (Lia McHugh). Laura and Richard have clearly been taking a long break from their marriage and this has treated Laura much worse than it has Richard. We also have Grace (Riley Keough), who is the only surviving member of a now dead, death cult which just so happened to be led by her father.  Needless to say, both of these families have their fair share of problems.  As the story unravels, the audience is left guessing as to what and where the danger may be coming from, but the tension is undeniable. Watch The LodgeWatch on AmazonClick here to Watch Review The Lodge is a very interesting movie for a lot of different reasons. The directors, Severin Fiala, and Veronika Franz made a lot of wonderful choices that put this squarely in my "favorite movies of 2019" box. The framing and location choices were bleak, cold, and clinical. This is an easy movie to compare to Hereditary based on many of the filming and set styles used. Lots of the shots are on the pretentious side of artistic and that’s just fine by me. The mood was mostly sad, and strangely dangerous, with the story constantly dangling danger at the periphery of the audiences vision but never quite letting it come fully into the light.  Just when you think you have a good handle on what is going on, the rug is pulled out from under you, which happens several times in The Lodge. There is lots of allusions to danger, and coincidences in this slow burn thriller to keep any hardcore thriller fan happy.  While I had quite a good time with the movie I must say, the content is deadly serious and fairly heavy, which left me with a gross taste in my mouth at the end, but that’s part of the allure. Here at Horror Movie Talk, we are family people, and have made it very clear that one of the horror elements that work best for us in movies is the breakdown of the family structure, and The Lodge has that in spades.
