What if Robert Altman made a shot-on-video slasher instead of NASHVILLE? BLOOD LAKE is the most fascinating -- and stupefying -- horror movie that ever escaped from 1987.
Made by real-life friends from Oklahoma on a real-life vacation, BLOOD LAKE is a rewardingly lethal collision of ‘80s slasher video-vomit and twisted cinema vérité madness. From false metal soundtrack hits like “Thru-Out The Nite” and “Was It Real” to gratuitous scenes of people sleeping, this might be the only movie capable of stamps-of-approval from both David Lee Roth and Andy Warhol.
BLOOD LAKE documents a gang of unhinged party animals as they embark on a weekend trip of jet skis, a keg of Busch and an extended game of Quarters. But look out -- a supernatural killer’s on the loose, wearing cowboy boots and a silk shirt with a rose stitched on it!
The finest vacation from hell ever captured on video, BLOOD LAKE has been rescued by AGFA from its original 1” master tapes.
