Lodger, The: A Story Of The London Fog

Considered by many to be the first true Hitchcockian film, this thrilling tale of suspicion, betrayal and murder "reveals in every sequence the matchless and untrammeled visual imagination that was to become [Hitchcock's] hallmark" (Los Angeles Times). For anyone interested in Hitchcock, in the art of silent storytelling or simply in first-tale movies, The Lodger "must be seen" (Los Angeles Times)!

During a rash of gruesome murders by a serial killer known only as "The Avenger", a mysterious stranger arrives in London and rents a room with the Bunting family. Intriguing and reclusive, the Buntings' new guest soon earns the interest of their beautiful daughter. But when the lodger's strange habits and odd hours start to coincide with the Avenger's killings, the Buntings suspect they may have let a murderer into their home... and given him the key to destroying their lives!
