Lucius Gore ESplatter Not as horrible as some of the direct-to-DVD stuff hitting shelves, but a weak movie all the same. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 4, 2008 Full Review Scott Weinberg DVDTalk.com You'd think a southern-fried stew full of Lovecraft, Carpenter and Spielberg influences would make for a fairly decent way to spend 91 minutes. Nope. Rated: 2/5 Apr 8, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member A great dose of Lovecraftian horror and gory makeup, albeit by way of Limburger-quality acting and digital effects. Still, enjoyable for what it is. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member A campy but somewhat fun little horror film, Beneath Still Waters has a somewhat original premise that it unfortunately can't deliver on in a clever or scary fashion. Still, it might provide an entertaining evening for fans of B-level horror cinema. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member While somewhat original, the plot did tend to be a tad predictable. Luckily, as is Yuznaz's style, there was plenty of great deaths and lots of gore to go round. Beneath Still Waters is classic Yuzna and that my friends, is a good thing. Unfortunately, the film still rings true of most direct-to-video low budget horror flicks and as such, doesn't quite delivery the punch you might like. If you're looking for slick looking horror, look elsewhere. Beneath still Waters is old school and it looks the part. Worth checking out compared to most flicks you'll find on VOD or rental shelves. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member "Fear is rising." I was intrigue when I saw this on sale. Brian Yuzna was the sire of this film and he's the maker of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, Return of the Living Dead and etc. The film was released in 2005 but you will have a feel that it was done late 80's. The effects are reminiscent of 80's Horror Film. They didn't rely on SFX but with camerawork and actual synthetic effects. It was great. The acting was, ahm, errr, awful. The casts did not bring justice for the characters they're playing. The story, very confusing. It was self-explanatory but a lot of padding info mashed into one theatrical run, and you'll be wondering, "oh so, it's 40th anniversary and they're doin' a shindig." Lake of the Dead is just another lame horror movie to ever hit my DVD player. 1 out of 5 Stars! :) Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member very cheesy with poor acting and effects Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member very cheesy with poor acting and effects Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews
