Reviews [click links to read more]:

Lake Artifact was so very nearly a great film for me. I love time loops anyway, but the unexpected surreal humour added rather than detracted from the film. I would have preferred slightly more clues, and perhaps more of a nefarious vibe, but the often straight-faced humour from the cast gave this film a warm feel.” The Rotting Zombie

” …the movie eventually veers off into much darker territory where your best friends become your worst enemies. And thanks to a very solid directorial effort that doesn’t try too hard to make sense of it all (and in process explain everything away), and a very capable cast, this has actually turned out to be a rather cool piece of horror.” Search My Trash

“Writer/director Bruce Wemple (Altered Hours) leaves a few to many threads hanging. Whether by accident or as a starting place for a return visit to the lake I’m not sure. but I do wish more had been cleared up.” Voices from the Balcony

Altered Hours director Bruce Wemple once again tackles a time-altering, science fiction, horror film in Lake Artifact. I love the concept of time in the film and Wemple gets some truly good performances from his cast.” Without Your Head
