Early Eighties Slasher Films Revisited
13 May 2000 | by (Belleville, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

After reading the user comments for Fever Lake I had to ask myself why do people hate this movie so much? It's really not that bad. If you were as much of a sucker for those early eighties slasher films like Friday The 13th or Sleepaway Camp, as I was, then you will probably adore this movie.

Director Portillo, borrows from countless horror films to construct a very good, unpredictable and atmospheric little film. The plot starts out like so many of those other slasher flicks, you know, a group of young twenty-something's head up to an abandoned cabin in the woods. The cabin sits on the outskirts of the lake of the title. As the film progresses we learn more about the strange history of the cabin and the lake. The suspense builds slowly and just when you think you've figured out who the killer is, or might be, nope, you're wrong.

The only problem with the film that I saw was a technical one. The editing could have been better but it does improve as the film goes on.

Corey Haim is excellent, offering a brilliant, slightly on-edge character who comes across as shy and dangerous at the same time. Watch for the ending where Haim goes through an entire range of emotions in a single scene. He goes from violent and angry to scared and child-like in one shot. Bo Hopkins is also good, playing a sheriff... again. Mario Lopez(Saved By The Bell) appears but doesn't have much to say.

Don't over analyze this film and you might enjoy it.
