After its world premiere last week at the Toronto International Film Festival, it’s been announced today that Irish horror film The Lodgers (2017) will be also screened next month at the Sitges Film Festival 2017.
The Lodgers (2017) is placed in rural Ireland, 1920. 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 called “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.
The movie is directed by Brian O’Malley, who a few years ago surprised the upgrowing Irish horror film scene with his mysterious horror thriller Let Us Prey (2014). Debutant David Turpin has been in charge of the script. The cast includes names like David Bradley, Eugene Simon, Charlotte Vega, Moe Dunford, Bill Milner, Deirdre O’Kane and Roisin Murphy.
