In the gothic horror tale The Lodgers, a family curse confine orphan twins Rachel (Charlotte Vega) and Edwards (Bill Milner) to their home as punishment for their ancestors’ sins. Bind to rules derived from a childhood nursery rhyme, the twins insist that they must never let any outsiders into the house, be in their rooms before midnight and to never be separated. Breaking the rules would let the wrath of the “lodgers” who prowl the corridors at night. While Edward is committed to this ill-fated life, he’s becoming more unhinged due to the fact that Rachel is not. Smitten by a local soldier (Eugene Simon), Rachel grows skeptical and begins to rebel, desperate to escape the oppression and misery of their captivity.
