DVD Review: Ghost Lake

When I saw this movie was being released, I had high hopes that it was going to be good. Well, it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't as good as it could have been. Too many times while watching this I was muttering "What the hell is going on?", and that's never a good thing when it comes to horror movies. The movie follows a young woman whose parents died while she was out getting it on with some guy and she tries to escape her guilt by going to her parent's cabin. Nothing or no-one is what it seems at the old lake. What follows is a cock-a-mamie plot massacre. The film said it runs 111 minutes on the box, but in reality it ran well over 130 minutes, and boy it felt like it! Unfortunately, the best part of the disc is the "making of" portion, it was actually entertaining. The movie gets ** out of *****.
