Riley Keough must repent in the first trailer for “The Lodge,” which is the next film by “Goodnight Mommy” filmmakers Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala.
The trailer is filled with jump scares, bloody noses and blood-curdling-screams — in other words, it has everything you could possibly need from a horror movie trailer.
“The Lodge” follows Keough, who goes to a lodge with her boyfriend’s children (played by Jaeden Lieberher and Lia McHugh) when, naturally, everything goes terribly wrong. Fiala and Franz have established themselves as horror geniuses since their film “Goodnight Mommy” garnered critical acclaim in 2014.
“The Lodge” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Neon bought the film shortly after its premiere. It will hit theaters this fall.
At the festival, Franz and Veronika spoke about their films and how they don’t see them as pure horror movies but more as psychological thrillers that point a finger at society.
“We always make the movies we would like to see in cinemas ourselves,” said Fiala. “It could be anything except for romantic comedy. Well, you never know … maybe if it’s a crossover.”
