Martha's 31 Days of Horror - Movie Review: Neverlake


Well I had low expectations going in. It wasn't the movie I thought it was but it wasn't at all bad.
Neverlake is a movie about a girl named Jenny who has been away at boarding school and is now coming to stay with her Dad who was once a doctor now quit that and is doing research on the myth of the lake near his residence which is said to have strange powers from Etruscan spirits, who EVENTUALLY ask her to help return their stolen artifacts.
The lake is creepy to say the least and Jenny meets this group of children living in a hospital or orphanage near the lake as well. They are very sick, some in wheelchairs, and blind.
If I say too much it will give the movie away. It's a twisted tale that has a surprising ending...
worth seeing at least once. Not really scary but for those of us craving the abnormal and the scary, this is extremely tame regardless of what the poster shows.
I was hoping for a haunted lake story... which is what it comes off as. While those spirits play some minor part in it, the real story is with the girl and her family. With that said, not what I imagined or wanted but worth seeing at least one time.

Do you believe in ghosts?

There is no proof either way.
