blood lake 2014Plot:

After chomping through the fish population, thousands of starved lampreys begin attacking the citizens of a sleepy lake town, and the community scrambles to stay alive…



Blood Lake is a basic, yet functional family fright film.  But in being so patently rote and broadly bland, it misses out on having any bite, wit, or snap that can otherwise make a mediocre monster movie moderately charming. Blood Lake is too tame for horror fans, too drab for younger crowds, and too sappy even for parents to watch with savvy kids who know better.” Culture Crypt

“… there is a freshness to the carnage and a definite yucky vibe watching these slimy little suckers drip out of faucets, slither out of toilets, swarm the swimming pool, latch onto people like vampiric serpents.” Dread Central

Which is kinda funny since Christopher Lloyd had a role in this one along with the Piranha remake. Finally, the film does have a great deal of on-screen kills but the visual effects and CGI are horrible.” Horror Society

” …Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys is incredibly CG-heavy. Some of which works and some of which doesn’t – sadly there are a number of gory scenes that are rendered laughable by poor CGI, which even proliferates the film when they’re not really needed […] But hey-ho, you know what you’re getting with a production from The Asylum: low budgets, excessive CGI, ridiculous plots, cheesy scripts… and a whole heap of fun!” Nerdly

Choice dialogue:

Rich: “I love the smell of Lampricide in the morning!”
