One star is an insult to stars!,
This review is from: The Lodge [DVD] (DVD)
The cover blurb has the temerity to suggest that this film is in the same ball park as The Shining and Cabin in the Woods. Please don't believe that for a minte- they are films of wit, thought and intelligence. This is about as far from those two films as you can possibly get. In fact it re-defines the word formulaic- loved up couple go to remote cabin for peace and quiet-mad person appears-all not right-strange noises etc-mad man attacks- eventually they both escape-chase ensues-mad man dies-they think they've got away-twist. t's really that simple and that tedious. The acting makes one think they made the cast out of left over wood when the set was built. The dialogue is pre school stuff and, and, oh, I wasted 90 minutes if my precious existence on this garbage and it's that which offends me more than the money I spent. Caveat Emptor!
