#IrishFilm: Watch the new US trailer for Irish gothic horror The Lodgers

Epic Pictures Group has released a new US trailer for Brian O’Malley’s gothic horror The Lodgers, which is produced by Tailored Films.

The film, which is written by David Turpin, follows a sister and brother haunted by a secret curse that forces them to remain in the large estate home left to them by their dead parents. But when a young man who falls in love with the sister tries to free her, his attempt sets off a deadly chain reaction.

Bill Milner (X-Men: First Class) and Charlotte Vega (REC3) play the lead roles, supported by a strong cast that includes Patrick’s Day lead Moe Dunford, Game of Thrones actors David Bradley and Eugene Simon, Noble star Deirdre O’Kane, and Roísín Murphy (What Richard Did).

The Lodgers is being produced by Julianne Forde and Ruth Treacy for Tailored Films, with Patrick Ewald and Shaked Berenson of Epic Pictures Group as executive producers. The film received backing from Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board.

The film will be released by Wildcard Distribution later this year.
