[5.50/10] The Lodge (2020)

The Lodge (2020)

Quick Review: Uncanny in tone, if never frightening, "The Lodge" ably makes you question the situation between the future stepmother and two grieving kids - is she messed-up or they play tricks on her, and the twist hint midway implies an 'afterlife' direction the story takes in, but the vagueness is more frustrating than riveting, the script never digs deep into Grace's disturbing past, and the only chilling thing in it is the isolated frosty setting, and yet Keough gives a haunting performance.

Vagueness isn't good without a payoff.

True that. There was a payoff, but it was an underwhelming one.
