TALES FROM THE LODGE
Director: Abigail Blackmore. With: Mackenzie Crook, Laura Fraser, Sophie Thompson, Johnny Vegas, Kelly Wenham & Dustin Demri-Burns UK 2019. 93 mins.
EUROPEAN PREMIERE - A group of middle-aged friends gather at a remote lodge to honour a friend who recently drowned in a nearby lake. With emotions running high, everyone makes the most of a gloomy situation by celebrating the best way they know how: swapping silly, scary stories that would have earned a giggle from their dearly departed pal. Urban legends about a masked slasher, a paranormal ghost hunt and a post-apocalyptic wasteland soon lose their fun shock value as the sextet become stuck in a true terror tale that exposes dark secrets no one could have possibly foreseen.
