Two sisters and their boyfriends drive to a small cabin to spend the weekend with the girls parents. However, when they arrive, they find them missing and the cabin in disarray. Things worsen as they become stranded at the remote lake, cars not starting, cell phones useless. As the autumn sun fades away something creeps from its lake dwelling in search of blood... human blood. And while the mystery of what happened to the parents unravels so too does the bond of friendship as pasts crash in on the present. Not everyone will survive the night, but those that do will be dead in the water. Written by

Maybe George A. Romero doesn't know shit.

Although I love suspense, I don't usually like horror movies. It seems that most horror movies are all about how can we kill the next character off in an even more creative (and disgusting) way. I usually don't watch horror films for this very reason, and when I do, I usually have my eyes closed for a large portion of the movie. Kudos to Dead in the Water. I didn't close my eyes once, and I enjoyed every minute of it. The scenery was spectacular, the acting A+. This is NOT a horror film in which you know the story immediately and the rest of the film is all about, "Oh no, who is going to get killed next?" Instead, the story progresses a little bit at a time. Flashbacks in the form of memories help us to understand the characters and their motives a lot better. I loved the story, the scenery, the acting and the direction. I'm looking forward to a sequel!
