A dashing, slightly odd young man rents a room from a couple that has fallen on hard times. He seems like the solution to all of their problems, until his increasingly unusual behaviour makes them suspect that he may be the serial killer currently stalking the streets of London.
"The Lodger is that distinctive combination of death and fetishism, trick shots and music-hall humour, intense menace and elegant camerawork that assured Hitchcock’s place among cinema's giants.”
- Andrew Pulver
