Reviews: The Lodge (2020)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: …the film’s themes of Christian guilt don’t amount to much in the end, its climax more of a been-there, done-that deflation. “The Lodge” gets more mileage out of a creepy bowl of sea monkeys in a clear case of style over substance.
  • Karl Delossantos @
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: The filmmakers know how to set a mood, and while the story is engaging in the moment, especially with Riley Keough’s performance, it doesn’t have much lasting impact.
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: ‘The Lodge’ is a chilling thriller that tests a family’s sanity when they’re stranded in a snowstorm with no supplies and someone with malicious intent.
  • [New] | Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: When horror movies appeal to our psychological fears, they can be fascinating.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: This exasperating movie is so obnoxious it could be deliberately trolling us. Wants to have its ambiguous cake and eat it, too, smothered in a gloomy frosting. *extremely pinches nose in despair*
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: See this movie and prepare for it to mess you up.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: I imagine becoming a stepparent is difficult. Especially when the kids hate you, you’re snowed in alone at a remote cabin, and you’re the lone survivor of a doomsday cult.
  • Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: It’s less about leading us down one road to pull the rug and expose a second than carefully traversing multiple forks in tandem to show how they can all be true simultaneously.
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: It’s a shame the film ultimately has little else to offer beyond its slow-burn eeriness and psychological chills.
  • Matt Oakes @
    • Excerpt: Led by a strikingly gloomy performance from Riley Keough, ‘The Lodge’ uses the power of psychological warfare and brutal natural elements to spook up a dark cabin fever horror story that refuses to let up.
