Storyline

1920, rural Ireland. Anglo Irish twins Rachel and Edward share a strange existence in their crumbling family estate. Each night, the property becomes the domain of a sinister presence (The Lodgers) which enforces three rules upon the twins: they must be in bed by midnight; they may not permit an outsider past the threshold; if one attempts to escape, the life of the other is placed in jeopardy. When troubled war veteran Sean returns to the nearby village, he is immediately drawn to the mysterious Rachel, who in turn begins to break the rules set out by The Lodgers. The consequences pull Rachel into a deadly confrontation with her brother - and with the curse that haunts them.

A stunning, Gothic masterpiece.
22 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

The Lodgers is a breathtaking film, every ounce the Gothic masterwork that reviews claim it to be. David Turpin's writing is haunting and gorgeous - I couldn't believe that this was his first screenplay. The decrepit world of twins Rachel and Edward is brought to life with unsettling brilliance by director Brian O'Malley, making each exacerbation of events more evocative than the last. Charlotte Vega is a mesmerising Rachel, as she grasps the audiences empathy from the very first scene. Bill Milner's turn as Edward is unforgettably unsettling, a role he takes on with every bit of his marvellous acting ability. All the players in this exquisite film deserve all the commendation that they're receiving. Bravo on a truly wonderful film!
