Audience Reviews for The Lake Effect
"For this to be an indie flick with mostly unknown actors it was pretty good. I liked the characters and felt like those of us raising teenagers can relate. That fear of watching your child not only turn into the bad parts of you, but also making the same mistakes you did. It's like watching yourself relive it all over again through your child. Not a fun experience. Enjoyable and worth a watch if your indie flick movie kind of person like myself."
