Critic Reviews for Shimmer Lake

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

Shimmer Lake proves there's something extra tragic about watching comedians play dress-up in a movie that fails to be funny.

Shimmer Lake requires attention be paid, or prepare for a head-scratching conclusion as the pieces finally align for the story's end game. Or maybe that's the beginning game?

October 10, 2018 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

Almost comical, not-quite suspenseful, right on the cusp of "Netflixable."

June 5, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

By the time you make it to the end of Shimmer Lake and have unraveled the mystery, the film has finally hit its stride, so much that you'll want to start it up again to watch with the foreknowledge of what everybody's up to.

Shimmer Lake takes a simplistic story and breathes new life through the use of reverse storytelling, a beautiful muted color scheme, and strong performances from its cast.

You might come to Shimmer Lake to figure out this winding murder mystery, but you'll stay for the unexpected flecks of humor.
