    Another reviewer said "if you can make it through the first 6 minutes, you're in for a wild ride" and I think that sums it up better than I can.

    ★★★★

    This was an incredibly powerful film about faith and religion, and I'm shocked by how much it hit me. I'm so used to seeing Christian characters act the martyr while being victimized, that it's disarming to see one act so ... I don't know, real? Like he's genuinely suffering because he cares. Obviously there's a lot of allusion to all the temptations of Christ here but... wow, really powerful film. I feel like it's make a fascinating double feature with Saint Maud.

    A dangerous movie to put on a quarantine watchlist, considering the themes of isolation. The Lodge is dark and plodding, but you are compelled to keep watching. It's so oppressively full of dread and sadness, but you can't look away. I was so stressed out while watching, to the point that I still feel sick to my stomach even after the credits have rolled. This movie hits much the same tones as 2018's Hereditary, but is its own beast enough…

    I thought this was pretty good. There are times when it rises above the level of "Shudder original", but never really reaches "great" status. It's an interesting social commentary, and an interesting take on popular society gaslighting minority groups. Recommended.
