Trailer: Shudder visits the Lake of Death
James R | On 16, Jul 2020
Shudder is going on a day trip this summer to the Lake of Death.
Its new original horror, inspired by Norway’s popular 1942 novel (and later film adaptation) of the same name (De dødes tjern), is directed by Nini Bull Robsahm (Amnesia).
A year after her twin brother mysteriously disappeared, Lillian and her friends head to the old family cabin to say their goodbyes. But soon after they arrive, eerie and gruesome events begin to occur. As the lines between reality and Lillian’s nightmares blur, she must fight both an external and internal struggle to stay alive. Is a horrific local legend becoming reality, or is the real enemy among them?
Robsahm shot Lake of Death on 35mm and brought on Academy Award-winner Bob Murawski (Army of Darkness, Drag Me to Hell, The Hurt Locker) to edit. Starring Iben Akerlie, Jacob Andersen Schøyen, Jonathan Harboe, Sophia Lie and Elias Munk, the film is released on Shudder on 16th July.
Here’s the trailer:
Lake of Death is available to stream online on Shudder UK, as part of a £4.99 monthly subscription, or £49.99 yearly membership.
