Worst Sequel since Jaws 4!!!
I truly love Cabin By the Lake, and Judd Nelson's character, Stanley, is great, watching the first film,I almost became sympathetic with his situation, which is evedence of truely great writing. The Return to Cabin by the Lake has a great plot basis, but is poorly done. I am giving all due credit to Mr. Nelson, he did a great job on the acting...for what was givin to him. I can only think that this film was intentially directed badly as a joke. But what really bothers me about the film is how every other minute the camera would change to a hi-8. I believe the director only did this because of Quentin Tarantino's commentary of Pulp Fiction, when he said that recording with a hi-8 is a great cinimetogrophy trick for "campy" horror films. As in the first film, this was left open for a sequel, I hope on the next one, they take a higher road.
