Audience Reviews for Cabin by the Lake

Wanna know something funny? I watched Cabin by the Lake and its, if possible, shittier sequel in a cabin. Except it was by the ocean, not a lake. It was also awesome, unlike this movie.

A movie about a screenwriter cultivating a garden of dead women sounds like some macabre self-indulgent fantasy to me. It's almost as if the genius behind this script was saying, in more words, "someone option this script or this is the fate that will befall several young girls." And then a hapless TV studio, worried about safety more than quality, did so. And this cheesy piece of horror doo-doo was born.

Congratulations, you just watched me tell the worst story ever. Except not because you probably haven't seen this movie yet.

The humor really helps this film. Nice bits about being a writer. Could be every writer's fantasy.

Actually not a bad film. Judd Nelson's overall creepiness (I find him this way in real life also) makes this worth a watch. Can be found playing on the likes of Sci-Fi, USA, Chiller, etc.
