Storyline

Inspired by a murder-mystery-turned-legend surrounding a massacre near "Sam's Lake," the film follows Sam, a young woman who, every summer, returns home to the secluded lakeside cottage she grew up in, to reconnect with her traditions and memories of the past deep within an isolated forest. This year's guests are a group of hip, young urbanites, who join Sam on her annual trip. But when Sam and her childhood friend and local to the area, Jesse, take the group on an adventure to revisit the site of the murder they all come face to face with the terrifying legend of "Sam's Lake."

A very poor, low budget film.
1 October 2007 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie. Please don't believe the fake hype that's been going around obviously planted by the studio. This movie lacks continuity thru out and makes you lose interest after the first 30 minutes. It is not a horror movie. In fact I don't know which genre to put this into. It was definitely a snooze fest for me and I give it a 4/10 tops.

Shame on studio execs for planting fake positive reviews on IMDb. It beats the whole purpose of IMDb where people come to get unbiased ratings.

Please don't waste your time on this film if you are looking for some good chills and thrills. This movie will bore the hell out of you. Surprisingly the acting was good for the first 20 minutes or so making you think if the director lost interest in it after wards?
