NEON has released an official trailer for The Lodge, the latest horror from Austrian writers and directors Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala, who previously wrote and directed 2014’s Goodnight Mommy.
The movie follows two kids forced to spend some alone time with the woman their father left their mother for, when all three find themselves trapped in the lodge they’re staying in. It stars Riley Keough, Jaeden Martell (formerly known as Jaeden Lieberher), Lia McHugh, Alicia Silverstone, and Richard Armitage.

The film was an official selection of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. Here’s a description of the movie from the Sundance website:
Devoted to their devastated mother, siblings Aidan and Mia resent Grace, the younger woman their newly separated father plans to marry. They flatly reject Grace’s attempts to bond, and they dig up dirt on her tragic past—but soon they find themselves trapped with her, snowed in in a remote holiday village after their dad heads back to the city for work. Just as relations begin to thaw, strange and frightening events threaten to unearth psychological demons from Grace’s strictly religious childhood.
An unblinking study of human frailty, The Lodge offers a haunting exploration of the traumatic aftershocks of religious devotion while positing that some evils just don’t die. Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala build an overwhelming disquiet from this visceral and stylish film’s very first scene, before nestling their claustrophobic thriller within a disorientingly endless snow-filled landscape. Riley Keough exudes fragility as well-meaning Grace’s every good intention leads her deeper back toward the hell of her own past, while Jaeden Martell and Lia McHugh do impressive work as the kids’ practiced defiance turns to fear.
The Lodge will be released in theaters sometime this fall.
