- Movie that never movied. 4/5/2021 12:00:00 AM by Patient444
Wow was this harsh or what?!? I have to say: the intro of the movie blew me away a little and indeed got my hopes high. I was ready to see a cool horror, perhaps a tad bit artsy fartsy with one great soundtrack. Only problem was, that intro was the movie, the intro could have been used as the trailer and you would have not known the difference.
Every few minutes..and I mean few minutes, as in 3-4, a new song starts playing, some slow motion scenes, all the symbolism one could imagine and then we have another 3-4 minutes windows where pretty much nothing happens. This is such a roller coaster of the same thing happening over and over again, it was truly difficult to watch it all the way. At about the 60% mark of the movie something does happen, in the same pattern it did till then, and you're stuck there, going through it again and again, knowing that whatever happens next, it will have the exact formula.
Black Lake was a hard experience for me, one that I would not recommend to anyone. There are some ambiguous horrors out there indeed, but this one, it gave away nothing, relying on...what exactly? I truly have no good things to say about it, excepting the intro. That is all, watch that and then skip the rest.
- Stylish horror covering the myth of the Churail. 3/25/2021 12:00:00 AM by singhlall
This is a must for discerning horror fans who want a horror that packs a punch with flavours from the subcontinent. Great cinematography and a vision which delivers a an eerie experience. The score is fabulously haunting. Check this out. The mythology around the churail is fascinating and chilling.
- Great vision from a brilliant new artist 3/22/2021 12:00:00 AM by alanmcqueen2-127-95429
This is a wonderful film. Visually stunning. Creatively challenging. A woman leaves her family to travel to follow her creative dreams. She is haunted by a Churail, a demonic South Asian witch. A tremendous vision.

40 minutes in.....still nothing happened. Not recommended.
- What a waste of time 4/8/2021 12:00:00 AM by lafebre-80307
Like too many 'horror' movies these days, Black Lake is 100% scare free. Worse, it is stultifying. Nothing happens, just a lot of arty photography and throbbing music. How does someone get the financing for a film this awful?
