Why would anyone in their right mind make a sequel to the first movie? The operative phrase here is "right mind", because anyone who thought that hideous acting, random slow motion during action sequences and a plot that doesn't actually involve the cabin OR the lake would make for a good movie is crazy.

Sequel to the previous "Cabin by the Lake" the movie is about the making of a movie of the psychotic but gifted mystery writer Stanley Caldwell,Judd Nelson, last an incomplete work before he disappeared under the waves of Lake Summit. It's no surprise at all that the murderous Cardwell survived when we see him in a number of very unconvincing disguises.Cardwell is seen early in the film killing a number of people who have to do with the making of the movie based on his unfinished masterpiece. Sequels hardly ever live up to the original. This definitely proves true in this case. However, if you're a big fan of the original than definitely give this a watch. Although the camera work is lacking, Brian Krause's character is annoying, and the plot is clique, it's much more funnier than the first and that is what I find entertaining about it. Don't see this movie expecting the same performance as in the first film. Quite frankly it's a bit different. Rather than sitting in his cabin writing screenplays, Stanley is off in Hollywood trying to direct his dream project, Cabin by the Lake. This movie has a much different feel but it's still great to see Stanley back in action.

The original wasn't even that good, yet alone any need for a sequel of any kind. It was hardly necessary. Moderatly suspenseful, but since it is so predictable, that does cut down on the suspense. Fair acting.

Not as good as the first movie, but how many sequels are? As usual, Judd Nelson shines amoung a bunch of low class actors. Once again the music adds to the film's atmosphere and lets us feel Judd's emotions. A few more funny momments to add to the list, but the first one was still much better.
