Rachel has had enough of the fast pace and stress, and convinces Chuck to move to a rural house on a lake. At first, all goes well, other than a few backward locals. Then, Chuck decides to take a swim in the lake, and makes a gruesome discovery. Suddenly, he has a very cold swimming partner! He goes to get the Sheriff, but when they return, the evidence has vanished. When the deputy tells a story of several past disappearances, the Yoman's wonder just what sort of place they've moved into. Odd occurrences and more deaths add to the mystery. Can Rachel and Chuck figure it all out... and live? THE PEOPLE ACROSS THE LAKE is a different kind of suspense thriller. It's got a TWIN PEAKS weirdness mixed in w/ the chills. It's a black comedy about family dysfunction, wrapped in a psychological horror story. A nice change of pace for the fear fanatic! Co-stars Barry Corbin in a unique role for him...
