The Lodge is similar to Crawl in that the trailer has several elements being timed to its soundtrack and looking damn cool for it.
Grace (Riley Keough – The House That Jack Built) is a soon-to-be-stepmum, who’s snowed in with her fiance Richard’s (Richard Armitage – Into The Storm) two children at a remote holiday village. Just as relations finally begin to thaw between the trio, strange and frightening events threaten to summon psychological demons from her strict religious childhood.
So, basically, a whole load of batshit mental stuff kicks off, and it looks brilliant.
UPDATE: A 2nd trailer is now online, and… there’s been quite a change since that first trailer came out, since now, this looks like another exercise in jump-scare hell and “Let’s be weird for the sake of it” that’s been hanging around ever since films like The Conjuring and similar. Plus, everything’s deep in the dark so you can’t see anything!
The Lodge is released in the US on February 7th, but as of yet, there’s no UK date. The fact that it’s in the Jan/Feb crap slot, speaks volumes.
