Critic Reviews for Sam's Lake
The nicest one can say about Sam's Lake is that it's well-shot, and that its major plot twist is genuinely surprising...if only because it makes no sense at all.
Sufficiently subtle and tasteful carnage, if those are suitably chosen words for what's in store. And the females, whether with good or bad intentions, rise above the usual scream queen hottie in distress roles, to flex their rough stuff too.
Audience Reviews for Sam's Lake
A descent horror flick with a pretty interesting plot.
A decent horror film found on Chiller. I found it to be a somewhat clever slasher tale than others out there, although as most of the genre, it does center around a group of attractive young adults who are played by relatively unknown cast. The scene is set when the group of friends are sitting around a campfire listening and telling scary stories, but one of them really happened. They visit the actual house that the true story occurred and find a journal, which is an interesting setup for the twist. The movie turns at that point from the build-up to action. Aside from the bland acting of most of the cast, the story is enough to keep one interested in the hour and half it takes to tell it.
Weak acting and no gore, this movie is all about the "twist" which is lame at best. Poser horror for those with a weak stomach.
