LAKE BODOM

Here’s a great idea: convince your friends to go camping. Then take them to the same spot on a lake where four teenagers were brutally murdered years ago. And the killer was never found! Awesome. What could possibly go wrong? Think you know where this is heading? Think again. Just as the bloody body count begins, LAKE BODOM takes a twist you will not see coming. Gleefully subverting the slasher-film rules while exploiting them for maximum nerve-pounding, this film offers a nasty little stew of carnage, sex, and unexpected surprises (none of them happy ones) that will especially delight horror junkies tired of the same old. It even manages to slyly comment on aspects of teenage culture that are terrifying in their own right. Stylishly filmed and skillfully edited for relentless tension, LAKE BODOM is the most fun you’ll have while screaming. It offers a fresh new set of gory and frightening reasons why you should stay the hell out of the woods. (In Finnish with subtitles) —C.R.
