Critic Reviews for Return to Cabin by the Lake
Audience Reviews for Return to Cabin by the Lake
I came across this just scanning through the channels. surprisingly, I really liked it. No, it's not realistic. I don't think a movie needs to be. The point of a movie is to get away from the real world and be entertained.
oh man. i saw the first one back in the day, and for a made for tv movie, it was alright. but this, this was just so so bad. there aren't even words to describe how bad it was. my soul wept for brian krause's acting.
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.
