Cabin by the Lake
What do we have here; a horror film with an interesting premise that actually follows through with it? A 12 year old made-for-tv-movie that manages to be better than most of the dull dreck we've gotten in the horror genre these later years? A creepy, funny and interesting horror film with something to say?
Yes. All of the above, actually. Although it meanders a bit after a certain part, it never really becomes boring. There are some one-note characters here, per usual in horror films, but they somehow manage to be interesting as well. Judd Nelson is great as the "screenwriter from hell" in a role that's actually fun to watch.
I liked this a lot. Sure, it's got plenty…
Post-modern commentary on the nature of horror films, or something. Not quite as clever or entertaining as it likes to think it is, but it's pretty good.
The amount of references to every other horror film ever pleased me greatly.
Maybe not a laugh out loud horror-comedy, but it's got a meta sense of humor that you totally wouldn't expect from something made for TV.
