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 Marc Buhmann

Cheap as chips and as scary
28 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Yet again I have been fooled by a low budget, film students end-of-year project masquerading as a movie.

Production is non-existent, the acting is comparable to a porn movie, the budget is minimal and the story (what there is of it) is tatty and confused.

If I had made this film with my friends on a mobile phone I would be really pleased, but I would never ask people to part with money to watch it.

It is actually painful to watch.

For instance in one scene a guy walks out to the kitchen, does a cartoon tripple-take for about a minute at the horde of zombies descending on the house, runs back to his friends. But they are making out, so being a polite kind of guy he doesn't want to interrupt so he just stands there whilst they get off with each other (out of shot) and then forgets about the killer zombies contained by a flimsy screen door a few feet away, luckily so did the writer as the characters have a stroll around the house a bit later.

It is not one of those movies that is so bad it is good, it is just bad. There is no funny moments, no gory affects, no tension, no nudity, the twist in the tail is pathetic and makes no sense.

The only tolerable parts are the sub plot shown in flash back regarding the two sisters relationship (which holds no baring on the plot what so ever) and the sound track is good in parts.
