"They live below and we live above. The day is ours, the night is theirs, and as long as we keep to the rules that's how it remains." At the mansion of Rachel and Edward, you must be in bed by midnight or risk facing the home's haunted inhabitants in The Lodgers, a new gothic horror movie from Brian O’Malley. With the movie coming out in theaters on February 23rd from Epic Pictures, we've been provided with an exclusive clip to share with Daily Dead readers.

Press Release: "Los Angeles, CA (January 11, 2018) – Epic Pictures has set a February 23rd theatrical date for filmmaker Brian O’Malley’s new gothic horror film THE LODGERS, written by David Turpin and co-produced by Julianne Forde and Ruth Treacy of Tailored Films, the Irish Film Board, and Epic Pictures Group.

The film stars Charlotte Vega, Bill Milner, Moe Dunford, and David Bradley, with Deirdre O'Kane rounding out the cast. The film, which premiered at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, will be released in theaters and on digital platforms on February 23, 2018.

1920, rural Ireland. Anglo Irish twins Rachel and Edward share a strange existence in their crumbling family estate. Each midnight, the mansion is haunted by the sinister presence of “The Lodgers,” which enforce three rules upon the twins: they must be in bed by midnight, they may not permit an outsider past the threshold, and they must stay together. When troubled war veteran Sean returns to the nearby village, he is immediately drawn to the mysterious Rachel, who in turn begins to break the rules set out by The Lodgers. The consequences pull Rachel into a deadly confrontation with her brother and with the curse that haunts them.

The film has been honored with 3 awards this year, including the Jury Prize for Best Film at the Molins de Rei Horror Film Festival in Barcelona, as well as official Jury Awards for Best Special Effects and Best Actress (Vega) at Fancine Festival de Cine Fantastico de la Universidad de Malaga in Malaga, Spain. The Lodgers was also the closing night presentation at the Sitges Film Festival which celebrated this year it 50th edition."
