Crazy Lake (2016)

Group of coeds go looking for fun at cabin on the lake and find the cabin wasn’t always used for rest and relaxation.

Recently I watched Dragons of Camelot which features current NWA star Thomas Latimer as a knight of the round table; you may remember Thomas as Bram from TNA wrestling. I was researching wrestlers in film like usual when I came across this film which also had Latimer in it, titled, Crazy Lake. I was not passing up the chance to watch a movie with a title like that! I decided to not rent it and skip right to buying it because of the trailer.


Crazy Lake is a slasher film from 2016. The movie is about group of kids who go to a cabin in the woods to party it up which is a perfect set up for the killings; you got girls in bikinis, guys running around in their underwear and swim trunks, and lots of alcohol. Crazy Lake was the site of a government experiment where they loaded violent criminals up with drugs, tied cinder blocks to their legs then threw them in the lake.

Latimer plays a killer in this film and although he has zero lines of dialogue he does a great job lumbering around and being a powerful on screen presence. With a half mask similiar to Hannibal Lecter and wild unkempt hair and beard, he looks like one scary ass dude. Add the size of Latimer and his physical abilities and it makes him even more terrifying.

What really makes this film in my opinion though is the kids partying and the accompanying music during those scenes. All in all it is just a typical slasher film but I really enjoyed it because of the partying. Spring Breakers is one of my favorite films and I got a tiny bit of that vibe from some of those scenes

If you like slashers, you will probably enjoy this film. It doesn’t do too much to stand out from the many other slashers that come and go throughout the years but it’s a solid slasher. It also made a great addition to my wrestlers in film collection. Heck, even if there wasn’t a wrestler in it, this seems like something I would pick up anyway. You can rent it through Vudu, YouTube or can buy it digitally as well. I found my new copy of the DVD on Family Video’s website.
