The Lodge

The Lodge thinks its rooted in gothic horror when its misery might actually be post-emo.  Suicide is predominant in this macabre thriller from Austrian filmmakers Severin Fiala and Veronica Franz (Goodnight Mommy) and while it seems to be a topic used to explore the mourning identities of the film’s characters, it’s mostly in existence to add moody atmospheric chills.  Surface-level stuff, but very effective.

The House That Jack Built

The House That Jack Built has a lot to unpack, so thank goodness it’s two-and-a-half hours.  Movie goers can compain about long runtimes but if this movie gave us anything shorter, the film would feel cut off at the knees – a fitting analogy for a viscerally grotesque feature.
