review by
Mike Haberfelner

Mark (James David West), his somewhat estranged brother Dan (Kyle Rankin) and his best friend Carson (Brendan Bald) have planned on going on an old-fashioned guys' trip together, renting a cabin deep in the woods near a little lake to do some fishing. But that trip's under no good star from day one when Dan brings his girlfriend Shay (Liz Atwater) and Shay's best friend Laurie (Meg Barlowe) with him, somehow changing the dynamics of the weekend. Thing is, there are cameras all over the premises, and when they check what they have captured, they stumble upon some very disturbing pictures. That and some creepy noises during their first night convinces Mark they've fallen victim to some very macabre prank, most probably conceived by their creepy neighbour Travis (Will Waldron), but when Mark and Laurie head over to his place to get out of him what's going on, they learns from his grandson Grady (Austin Copps) that he's been murdered last night, and they decide to take Grady in for the time being, with Laurie soon taking a liking to him, too. Thing is, Grady knows more than he lets on, but when put on the spot he tells them about the lake people - dead people living in the lake - they don't believe him. Nevertheless, their cars soon disappear - into the depth of the lake where they can't be retrieved with anything short of a crane. And soon enough, the boat people appear to our heroes, and their intentions are anything but divine ...


Now ok, the cabin-in-the-woods premise of this film has been done to death by 2024 - even if it does offer some beautifully moody locations in this one mind you -, but that said, this movie's not just a cookie cutter horror but puts an emphasis on the mystery side of things, letting the audience in on what's going on only gradually and this way making the situation of the film's protagonists all the more palpable. Plus the director really knows his horror, as tension runs high throughout this movie, and some scenes are genuinely creepy. And a very competent cast carrying the film rather convincingly also helps make this rather cool genre entertainment.
