Editorial Reviews

Three beautiful sisters learn of a long-lost grandfather, but only make this discovery upon the news of his grisly death. Enticed to visit grandpa's old home after hearing of an inheritance, the sisters head to the back country with some friends. We quickly follow the group of friends through the gates of a redneck infested hell. The psychotic family occupying the inherited property goes on a long-awaited, and much enjoyed killing spree. As the family's twisted motives unravel, the sisters discover a terror worse than death.

Is it cutting too fine of a line to say that I did not like this movie but I enjoyed it for the sick, twisted, and demented film that it is? Of all of the films in the 2007 After Dark Horrorfest collection, "Lake Dead"(which for some reason is stuck in my head as "Dead Lake") is the real groaner. But to give credit to the first time effort by director George Bessudo and writer Daniel P. Coughlin, they want you to groan when you see one of the most twisted screen kisses of all time and they want you to bang your head against the wall when the final double entendre is offered as the smoke clears and the final body count is established. This is not a movie so bad that it is good, but a horror flick that revels in coming up with a disgusting situation, without resort to disgusting amounts of blood and gore.

The film begins with a murder out at the lake, the context of which is conveniently cryptic. The victim turns out to be the grandfather of pretty young Brielle (Kelsey Crane), who did not know that her paternal grandfather was alive until now that he is dead. It seems grandpa has left Brielle, her sister, and their half-sister, a motel in the woods in the middle of nowhere (but near a lake). Their estranged father warns them not to go, but the girls and their friends jump in a camper and head out to the lake, where they manage to stay alive until shortly after the film's one nude scene. People start getting killed, things go from bad to worse, and when we find out what is really going on, then you can feel free to start groaning away.

All that being said, for me at least, living in my own little universe, "Lake Dead" has several things going for it.

If you like the feel and entertainment of 80's Slasher Films, then you'll enjoy this entirely. It's fun. It's campy. It has a plot. The necessary elements are there. I believe most of the goals were accomplished when comparing the intent and finished product of the film. I had fun watching it, because I'm a fan of the slasher genre.

I don't understand what everyone is complaining out with this movie. I really liked this one. It's a horror movie people, that's all it is. It's not trying to break new ground and be anything more than it is.
This movie was very well acted, above average, the cast was believable. The characters weren't stupid, you know the "who's out there?" sort. When they sensed danger they actually tried to make a run for it. The special effects were pretty good, there was some gore, not too much though. There was incest, mutant brothers, crazy grandma, crooked cop and good looking babes. What more could you ask for?
Anybody who gave this a poor rating is not a true horror fan. Give it a try, I'm glad I didn't go by the other reviews.

I have absolutely no idea why the reviews are so negative for this one.... The movie is totally sick, depraved, disgusting, disturbing, incestuous, without any moral values and above all......So nicely done!! Not as shocking as the human centipede but definitely as entertaining.

I think that once again, the reason for the poor reviews is probably because some of the scenes in there goes against moral values and what is "borderline" acceptable for most people. As for me......i didn't really care.....you know me........this is a horror movie.....not a comedy starring Adam Sandler..... the characters in here are just actors.....nothing more......this is NOT based on true events....and this sick family is not a real family......

Three sisters just found out that their grandfather passed away and he left them a motel near a lake in his will. Definitely excited and in need for money, they decide to go up there with their friends to see what the motel looks like and what they should do with it. They will soon realise that the motel is owned by a very sick family and they already have their own plans for the motel's future and the 3 sisters future as well......... The plot is Ok, the acting is good and the cinematography is just perfect. We also have some pretty twisted killing scenes that will sometimes remind you of WRONG TURN......and that should bring a smile to any horror fan's face!!...lol

5 Stars well earned for a real shocker!!, there was enough action and suspense to satisfy me and it has a lots of sexy moments...one of them i suspect was the main reason for the poor reviews but hey........thats all good......BTW, check out those AFTERDARK HORROR FEST - 8 FILMS TO DIE FOR releases, some of them are really good and worth checking out!! I think they have 5 volumes by now...........interesting stuff!!....

ENJOY!!!

After Dark has led me astray with films before. I have been disappointed in the past. This time though, I saw the synopsis and wanted to try it out since I adore movies about camping, horror, inbred family torturers, etc... This film wasn't too bad at all. It surprised me, I was expecting the usual implication of death but NO SHOW of gore that After Dark is known for, but nope. It showed the gore, it had a great plot, and it kept my attention. To describe it in my own way I'd have to say Hills Have Eyes meets Wrong Turn meets Motel Hell. Pretty good, pick it up for Friday flick and have some friends over, you won't be disappointed! ;) 3.5 I'm hoping for a part 2, it certainly left itself open for one.
