Lake Bodom

Lake Bodom

Directed by Taneli Mustonen

Four teens get some scary surprises when they camp out at Finland’s Lake Bodom, the site of a grisly massacre back in 1960. With the killer still at large, the teens have plenty of time to theorize about who might really be responsible and if he’s still out there. Right on cue, when the kids tuck in, footsteps start approaching and a killer emerges. But though director Taneli Mustonen wants you to think you know where the story’s going, he’s got some very clever twists on deck that take the story in an even more shocking direction. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE.

This is one of those movies that is ok, but there is so much potential for greatness that it possesses except for a few missteps that totally bold it back.This is a Familiar horror film based on a true story of murders that happened in Finland. Only in the film the location is the same and it doesn’t say this is what happened back then, but the story is modern-day set and might have some ties to that case.What works here is that the film keeps offering new twists that reshape the material. Some of these twists might feel a little familiar from other films, but it is still used wisely here. In fact, one wishes there were a few more.The beginning of the film Feels typical and a little dull. Though luckily as the film goes along certain relationships between the characters are explained and how Their pasts intermingle. This more happens as an explanation for certain actions and acts. Though the actions seem like overkill. As does some of the logic of the characters but as this is a horror film. It seems like it is needed to move one element to the other.The film is 60 percent perfect except for the beginning and the end. The end works in that it becomes a different type of film that foils any plans but then the film becomes the type of film you expected from the beginning which then makes it feel basic and erases all the exciting elements that came before it.Which also leads to a more ambiguous ending. That the film doesn’t necessarily feel like it deserves or has earned. So that you have a film that tries to show a depth it doesn’t possess. Which is supposed to be similar to the teenage characters within it?The film will be familiar to those who have seen HIGH TENSION or ALL THE BOYS LOVE  MANDY LANE. Which might be a spoiler itself, but at least here the enjoyment of the film doesn’t hinge on those surprises. Nor does it make you question the plausibility of what has been presented.The violence isn’t particularly inspired. Nor is the film very gratuitous in it’s action or content.The film isn’t a total waste. It just falls short of what it could have been. As it is pretty much a slasher with interesting twists and character histories. Grade: B-

Nonsensical movie.. how would leaked pics = deserve to die in anyone's head? The reviews here seem to be all fabricated because the plot and execution of this movie is awful. Read the reviews on IMBD, this dull slasher gets ripped to pieces and rightly so. Don't waste your time.
