Alpine Lake is a 2020 American slasher horror film about five college friends that go for a weekend of mischief in an isolated lake cabin. However, they are attacked one by one by a deadly killer in the woods in an endless night of terror and bloodshed.

Written and directed by Wayne Johnson, the Lafayette Pictures production stars Melvin Jackson Jr., Christine Guerra, Ellyana and James Matthew Poole.


“A low-budget mess that manages to be watchable enough due to its origins and some energy in its final half, although the rest of the one comes undone due to a joke of a killer and the budgetary limitations. Really only go for this one if you’re a fan of these indie slashers…” Don’s World of Horror and Exploitation

“While it does have some things going for it, I think that the bad outweighs the good and it could have been a lot better than it was. I’ve seen a lot worse lately and don’t think that it was as bad as other people made it out to be, but I won’t be in a hurry to revisit it again anytime soon.” HNN
