This year's Irish chiller The Lodgers will make its Netflix bow August 23.
Shot in Wexford's Loftus Hall - Ireland's most haunted house - Rachel (Charlotte Vega) and Edward (Bill Milner) are Anglo-Irish twins living in a debilitated mansion in 1920’s rural Ireland. The house exudes a strange curse over them: they must be in bed by midnight; they may not permit an outsider past the threshold; if one attempts to escape, the life of the other is placed in jeopardy.
The return of Irish WWI soldier, Sean (Eugene Simon), may lead Rachel to break these rules. Falling in love, the two plan an escape from the village. However, the increasingly demented Edward and the spirits of the house have other ideas.
Brian O'Malley (Let Us Prey) directs from a screenplay by musician David Turpin. David Bradley (Game of Thrones), Deirdre O'Kane (Moone Boy) and Moe Dunford (Michael Inside) also star.
As well as writing the screenplay, Turpin supplied the soundtrack. The musician - under the moniker The Late David Turpin - will release track 'Lucifer' for free August 24 as “a respectful counter-programming to Pope Francis’ visit to Ireland the following day."
The song is the first single from his forthcoming album Romances.
