This review is from: The Lodge [DVD] (DVD)
As other viewers have already quite correctly pointed out, the perky blurb on
the product packaging promises much with its references to both 'The Shining'
and 'Cabin In The Woods' and some pretty enticing quotes : "A Nerve Shattering
Classic Horror" & "Will Creep The Hell Out Of You". As to the former, well,
it isn't and with regard to the latter, well, it didn't (although I shouted at
the TV screen in utter disbelief on a number of occasions during the 85 minute
course of this utterly execrable movie but not in response to any of directors
Brad Helmink and John Rauchelbach's sloppy narrative or lame shock tactics).
What a mess! No-brainer script; appalling continuity and editing which, together
with cardboard cutout characterization and equally wooden acting, scrapes the very
bottom of the couple-on-a-weekend-away-in-a-creaky-house-full-of-sick-psychos-
and-not-getting-away-when-they-had-every-good-chance barrel. In a word : Pants.
I bought my copy today in a charity shop. Clearly a bad sign for such a new disc.
