Sarah (Caroline Tudor) brings her boyfriend-they've-never-met-before Ryan (Brad Schmidt) to her parents' (Peter O'Brien, Laura Niemi) place in snowy small town Lake Alice for Christmas, and of course there are many awkward situations, not only with the parents but also with the locals, like the wannabe tough sheriff (Michael Shamus Wiles), weirdo Carl (Patrick Burch), Sarah's ex Tyler (Brando Eaton) and his over-possessive mum Jane (Eileen Dietz) - but overall it's just really nice holidays, over the course of which Ryan even proposes to Sarah. Could things get any better? Well, maybe, but they definitely take a turn for the worse when one evening, someone tries to break into the house, cuts the phone and power cords, and when Sarah's dad wants to confront whoever it is with a gun, he dies from an axe in the back ... and suddenly, Ryan, Sarah and Sarah's mum find themselves on the run, and they have no idea from whom. Sure there's a long list of suspects, but they're killed off one by one coming to our heroes' aid, so desparation's sure to grow to exceptional heights ...

 

At its heart, Lake Alice is a slasher movie, and one with a masked killer even - but it does its best to escape the usual mode and instead spends much time on character development and build-up of tension. This makes the film's first half kind of slow for sure, if seen as a pure shocker ... but it tells its set-up well, so if one can enjoy more than just a movie's slice-and-dice quota, one might find much to like here, and of course, a very solid cast really carry the movie's slower bits.

Rather enjoyable, actually!
