Milan Records today releases THE LODGE (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK) with music by DANNY BENSI & SAUNDER JURRIAANS (Ozark, Chef's Table, Fear The Walking Dead). Available everywhere now, the album features score music written by the duo for the chilling horror film, which made its debut at last year's Sundance Film Festival. Directed by Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala and starring Riley Keough, Jaeden Martell, Lia McHugh, Alicia Silverstone and Richard Armitage, The Lodge makes its US theatrical debut today via NEON.
Of the soundtrack, composers DANNY BENSI and SAUNDER JURRIAANS say, "Filmmakers Veronica Franz and Severin Fiala were so bold and masterful in creating a unique tone in The Lodge. Wrought with iconic imagery, surreal cinematography, and a slow-burning bleak storyline, we all agreed that a sinister and minimal avant-garde score was in order. A non-traditional score that echoes dread, severe tension, the supernatural, and the slow spiraling descent of someone who is helplessly losing touch with reality."
A bone-chilling nightmare from the directors of Goodnight Mommy, The Lodge follows a family who retreat to their remote winter cabin over the holidays. When the father (Richard Armitage) is forced to abruptly depart for work, he leaves his children, Aidan (IT's Jaeden Martell) and Mia (Lia McHugh) in the care of his new girlfriend, Grace (Riley Keough). Isolated and alone, a blizzard traps them inside the lodge as terrifying events summon specters from Grace's dark past.
