Not a lake, folks. It's a town. A ghost town. Boo!
19 July 2013 | by BoloxxxiSee all my reviews

What do you get when you add Ghost Town + Old Witch + The Possessed + Unsuspecting Couple? --What you get is The Unsuspecting Couple traveling to Ghost Town where they run afoul of Old Witch and The Possessed. As is usual with these things, it takes a little time for the couple to figure out something is terribly wrong and that they need to book. Only it's not that simple (no entertainment otherwise, folks).

Chick and her fiancée go looking for her uncle Verne in some place called "Lost Lake" since he's supposed to walk her down the aisle about a month hence and he's been incommunicado. The couple set out and after receiving an oblique warning by a store owner (as is usual with these things) they arrive at Lost Lake which turns out to be a ghost town where uncle Verne is supposedly "ghost hunting" and researching. They are intrigued by the abandoned town and do a little exploring until they eventually run into Uncle Verne who acts like he's on uppers or something and who wants the couple to stick around and help him record the ghost with their cell phones "video capabilities". I had to chuckle at this point since I had this visual of people going around looking for ghosts with their cell phones. Where was uncle Verne's "more professional" ghost-hunting equipment would have been the natural question to ask at this point. But I guess brains addled by upcoming nuptials did not think to ask.

Nothing in terms of action or suspense happens until past the halfway point of this movie when the couple decide it's a good time to leave after an unimpressive (to me) encounter with "something" inside a building. Most of the action at this point was from the couple being chased by a machete wielding possessed man aided and manipulated by a wrinkled old mute witch and another long dead. Finally, a long build up or stretch of nothing happening only works if there is a huge payoff toward the end which, sadly, did not happen here. The movie should have gotten the ball rolling sooner, so to speak. Had it done that it could have picked up 1 o 2 more stars from me. By the time it became mildly interesting it was as they say "too little, too late". Love, Boloxxxi.

P.S. Trivia:

Guy in movie claims to not know about "Fantasy Island" American TV show 1972...("before my time") and later make a knowing reference to the "Brady Bunch" American TV series 1969...
