“The Lodge”

From the Milwaukee Film Festival website:

“The aunt/nephew duo behind Goodnight Mommy return with this twisty, dread-soaked story of a family forced to reckon with past trauma harkening back to Hereditary. Grace (Mad Max Fury Road‘s Riley Keough) retreats to a remote winter cabin to spend the holidays with her new boyfriend (Richard Armitage) and his two young children (including IT‘s Jaeden Martell). When dad is forced to abruptly leave for a work emergency, he leaves behind a chilly relationship in desperate need of thawing. Complicating things is the raging blizzard that traps them indoors as a series of increasingly terrifying events dredge up the specters of Grace’s troubled past. A slow-burn descent into paranoid madness, The Lodge mines its isolated setting for all its worth, amping up the tension through its harrowing exploration of unprocessed grief.”
