Cabin By The Lake Review
It boggles my mind how I end up watching the worst of the worst in terms of horror. I know that there are a lot of bad movies out there, and it's easy to figure out which ones are terrible, just look for "made for tv" feeling and you'll get a terrible film. Judd Nelson stars in this psychotic horror film titled, Cabin by the Lake.
The film's plot surrounds a script writer that is casting parts in a cabin, consequently, by a lake. As lots of vacationers start showing up by the lake, a mysterious psychotic man is killing people and putting them into a "garden" under the lake.
This "made for tv" movie is interesting on paper, but when you see the cardboard acting and the lack of gore, lack of nudity, and lack of anything that makes movies worth watching, the whole premise falls apart. The only reason I stuck by this film, was to see the reveal at the end of dead bodies floating in the lake, which makes up the "garden" that the killer keeps mentioning.
The best part of the film is that the bad guy gets away, and sets up a sequel. I won't mention to much about the sequel at this time, but it sucks. Trust me, it's terrible. Cabin By The Lake is one of the worst attempts at horror that I've seen, but at least Judd Nelson got a couple of paychecks. He was good in the 80's, that's for sure.
