"Lake Bodom" is not so much a slasher film as a meta-slasher film, toying knowingly with genre conventions and touchstones.
Lake Bodom is a film filled with murder, betrayal, obsession, and deception. The many different aspects of the film add a lot of intrigue, but it also makes the film seem convoluted at times.
... there's enough originality here, mixed with truly stunning cinematographer, to make Lake Bodom stand out from the pack.
While 'Lake Bodom' may run into a few snags along the way, Mustonen has crafted a rare breed these days: a compelling, propulsive slasher film.
Without doubt Lake Bodom is one of the best entries from recent years into the canon.
The world needs Taneli Mustonen behind the camera of more horror films.
Lake Bodom is a slasher flick that won't be fully appreciated until the credits roll, so be sure not to duck out of this sinister campfire tale too early.
A devious collision between adolescent crimes of passion and adult rites of repetition, it blurs genres and genders to create its own unsolvable crime, while also evoking that parallel proto-slasher from 1960, Psycho.
