As darkness falls the twenty-somethings must fight for their lives as Zombies attack the cabin and death comes for them with a vengeance! And what do you do when you're surrounded by Zombies in the middle of nowhere?... Use the local lake as your escape, but what if evil lies beneath the water -- you die.
I'm not going to lie, I was impressed by Dead in the Water... it does what it sets out to do well, it entertains. The acting is actually quite good, it s refreshing to have compelling characters with meaningful relationships who are well written and well performed by a game cast who seem to enjoy what they're doing. Another bonus worth mentioning is that the effects are also quite good. It's red, nasty, and convincing... --Andre Manseau, Joblo.com
****stars. It actually manages to be scary in more than a few points…The ending is actually going to manage to boost the originality level overall by at least several points, and is downright amazing, in all honesty. --Steve Anderson, Film Threat
Great locales, solid acting, and an engaging script all come together to deliver a solid film that adds as much in new material, as it still pays homage to the source material from which it borrows. Well done, fun film that is perfect for Halloween. --RJ Cavendar, Horrorlibrary.net
