The Lodgers are being pulled from the shadows and into the sun for two premieres this coming week!
We’re absolutely delighted to announce that The Lodgers shall be enjoying both its European and American premieres in the next week. Our first premiere of the week is taking place tomorrow and shall bring team Tailored to the sunny shores of Sitges for the acclaimed Sitges International Film Festival. The festival, celebrating it’s 50th birthday this year, is the most prestigious fantasy film festival in the world, showcasing the best and brightest fantasy and horror films during its weeklong span. Of course Tailored Films is no stranger to Sitges as our first feature Stitches premiered there way back in 2012. As a credit to its brilliance (if we do say so ourselves) The Lodgers has been awarded the honour of being the closing film for the festival in its semicentennial year. Tickets for the closing gala can be bought here.
As serious horror lovers here at Tailored Films, we couldn’t be more excited to announce that The Lodgers will be having its Stateside premiere at Screamfest. Held in Los Angeles every October, Screamfest is the largest and longest running horror film festival in North America. The festival is home to the scariest, most imaginative horror films in the world and has been credited for the discovery of many horror greats such as Paranormal Activity which premiered there in 2007. The Lodgers shall be having its Screamfest debut on October 17th. Tickets can be bought here.
The Lodgers was produced by Ruth Treacy and Julianne Forde of Tailored Films and financed by the Irish Film Board and Epic Pictures Group. The film was directed by the visionary Brian O’ Malley and written by the inimitable David Turpin. Among the wonderful stars of the film include newcomer Charlotte Vega, Bill Milner (iBoy, Son of Rambow), David Bradley (Harry Potter, Game of Thrones), Eugene Simon (Game of Thrones), Deirdre O’Kane (Noble) and Moe Dunford (Vikings). Patrick Ewald, Shaked Berenson, Macdara Kelleher and Rory Gilmartin were Executive Producers on the film and deserve every ounce of praise they’ve received for its creation.
