A group of friends travel to a remote cabin with the intent of visiting the brother of one of their number but, once there, they find no sign of him. According to local legend, anyone staying in the cabin will be doomed to drown themselves in the haunted lake nearby – and it’s not long before they realize that they may have been cursed with the same fate. Renowned in Norway, yet little known outside of its home country, LAKE OF THE DEAD is an atmospheric chiller sure to appeal to fans of folk horror and gothic literature.
