Gripping, technical, beautiful, scarring .

The rest of it was part pretentious film festival cinematography, part aspirational effort to invoke The Thing and The Shining because isolation and snow (the dog's name is Grady) and part puerile indictment of organized religion.

Really enjoyed it.

The twist was pretty lame and the ending felt too slow and rushed at the same time.

Sit back and enjoy this slow burner - it is rewarding

Dour and riveting .

There is ample misdirection that severs the dark plot line with telling a compelling human-story that slowly builds up the tension to a powerful climax.

The Lodge is the latest entry in the trend of horror-dramas, like Hereditary, The Babadook, and It Follows, which are light on jump scares and more concerned with telling a compelling human-story that slowly builds up the tension to a powerful climax.

Build up a story to it's logical and predictable finale, and then...

The whole movie was slow and boring and the ending was very weak.

What if, your movie was a waste of my time?

No plot, stupid twists, boring and the end was weak.

Rather than a slow burn, it's a slow freeze.

I did greatly appreciate the creative, unconventional scares in the movie, unlike the predictable, cheap whip-pan jump scares in most horror movies these days.

As a film lover you also have to think more about the films that this film copies and you have more need to look back at one of these films at home in order to spend your time on a better and more entertaining film.

Enjoyed it really and hope there will be more films like this.

Cryptic and Cleverly Unpredictable .

Boring yawn fest.. .

The cinematography is breathtaking, and Riley Keough's performance is unbelievable.

What a complete waste of time.. .

My wife and I both left the theater bewildered as to why this film is not getting more buzz and a wider release...

Boring, slow moving and characters did not move me.

It's a slow burner.

There were some scenes that dragged a tiny bit.

The movie starts in a slow pass.

Pathetic and boring.

While "The Lodge" is very much a slow burner, the first act manages to create interpersonal tension among the characters masterfully; anyone who is a child of divorce will find these sequences profoundly realistic and discomforting.

Despite having a compelling backstory, I never felt like I knew what her wants, needs, and weaknesses were, which resulted in her coming off as a lifeless shell who the plot happened to, not because of.

It's dull and doesn't give any extra to this movie.


Total waste of time .. one of the pointless movies I wish I'd never have watched.

However, it took a more subtle, slower direction which was honestly a let down.

The problem is exactly the storyline, really confusing and lacking some explanations on the second half of the movie and the slow pace.

The characters in this film make separate choices just to pinch each other, making the film even more difficult to follow.

It doesn't ruin anything, it's just a bit slow.

It was as suspenseful as they come and, to me, much better than Hereditary because the premise was "real".

A great concept dragged down by poor writing .

A total waste of time and very boring.

Very boring and disturbing .

The Lodge is very much a slow burner,it manages to create interpersonal tension among the characters masterfully.

In the first half there is nearly no plot.

Dour and riveting ; It left me emotional and pondering long after the credits rolled.

As she descends into madness, her religious history flares up, which I find quite intriguing.

After the terrible Goodnight Mommy these morons directors make a new pathetic and boring movie with a stupid ending.

This is a very boring movie and the end was very disturbing.
