The summary says it all. This is yet another found footage waste of time with a group of irritating, racist/homophobic/misogynistic characters that can't get killed off quickly enough. Other downers include the weak plot, the awful sound editing (the growling sounds like it was recorded in a metal garbage can... listen with headphones for the full effect), the irritating "static, distorted video when the ghost/demon/monster is about the appear" effect.I don't see how anyone watching this could have sympathy or connection to the characters in this movie. Aside from the camera guy and the black guy, the others are all awful, irritating jerks. Who has friends like these people? Maybe all the deplorable jerks hang out with all the other deplorable jerks, and leave the rest of us alone? If you have friends like these guys, the I suggest you watch this movie all the way through as it mount have a therapeutic effect for you when you see them getting killed.You could basically swap most of the movie out with a similar chunk of film from another found footage movie and it wouldn't matter... there's about 10 minutes worth of plot invested in this, so watch the beginning when they're warned to not go into the woods, and then the last couple of minutes and forget everything in between... and won't won't have missed much.If you've seen any of the many bad horror/found footage movies of the last 10 years, then you've seen this before... only it was probably done much better elsewhere.
Uhm, no...I have to admit that when I stumbled upon this 2015 horror movie titled "Creature Lake", well that is what the DVD's title said, I was intrigued. I liked the cover, and since it was a horror movie, of course I had to sit down to watch it.Then I learned that the movie was titled "Gitaskog", and not "Creature Lake". But I suppose that is all just depending on where the movie was released or something.And then as the movie started, it dawned on me that this was going to be one of those 'found footage' crapfests. Yet, I opted to give the movie a chance. But believe you me, this was indeed a crapfest.The storyline certainly was well enough written, I mean to the extend of the native American legend and the creature myth. But the execution of the movie was just utter rubbish. I loathe 'found footage' movies. Why pay money to watch a movie that is something you could just as easily have filmed yourself with your very own digital video camera? No, it is just a bunch of...Well, moving on. This movie was bad, trust me. Very, very bad. And if the audience is to believe that the footage shot during that weekend was found and reconstructed into a movie, why would it be found when the native American found the video cameras with no difficulty at all. Wouldn't he have destroyed the evidence? Of course he would. So this movie made absolutely no sense at all.Visually then "Gitaskog" wasn't an impressive movie. The camera work was shoddy and all over the place, as it always is with these laughable 'found footage' movies. And the CGI for the creature in the lake was dubious at best.As for this being a horror movie. No, it just didn't have the contents to be a proper horror movie.The acting in the movie was actually adequate enough, taking into consideration that writers Damien Slevin and Damien Slevin had provided very little material for the cast to work with. But the character gallery in "Gitaskog" was pretty flaccid, as the characters were one-dimensional and could essentially all have been one and the same character.While I suffered through the entire movie, I can in all honesty say that this is not a movie that I will be returning to watch a second time. Nor is it a movie that I would recommend you wasting your time, money or effort on. Some of us suffered through this ordeal so you don't have to.My rating of "Gitaskog" lands on a generous two out of ten stars.
I recently watched Creature Lake, and it was a fun time. I didn't have high hopes for such a low budget indie/horror but the CGI was done properly and who doesn't like a lot of tits and blood. So the film starts off with one of the friends, who wins a deed of land from a poker game and decides to have a boys weekend. With that being said, if you guessed insanity ensues after that well you are correct. So if you are a fan of horror or the self found footage type of film, give creature lake a try, you wont be disappointed.
i would highly recommend this film for anyone who's into suspenseful horror movies shot in the first person. acting was on point and i never knew what was coming, 10/10 for me, loved every minute of it! also, thought the production quality was very good and the special effects/ cgi was great! honestly, great film
No way would you record a guy's weekend, unless you are planning on leaving your wife or girlfriend. They really need to stop this found garbage genre. Amazon and Netflix needs to stop buying this poop(just to fill up their libraries). These guys are in their mid 30's, but act like high school kids.
