In 1960 two couples consisting of two 18 yr old boys and two 15 yr old girls, decided to take a camping trip to Lake Bodom, Finland. Only one of the boys survived grave injuries sustained during a horrific slaughtering that left his three friends dead at their lakeside campsite. No one has ever been identified and convicted of their murders. It is considered to be Finland's most horrific unsolved crime.

In this film two boys and two girls take a trip to the exact location of the murders and have the intention to recreate the event based on a theory that one of the boys hold. Things don't work out the way they had planned and their night by the lake turns into a nightmare.

I was impressed with this little slasher. This film did a great job holding my interest. It has a couple of twist that helped with that. The subtitles I had weren't that great. It was in a broken english but I followed it well enough to understand what was happening. I thought the camera work was decent and as far as I could tell, considering that I was interpreting a broken english dialogue, the acting was decent as well. I wished there had been a bit more blood and the kills had been a bit more creative. However, those things didn't take away from my enjoying the film.

This is a decent film. It deserves a recommendation. I'll give it 7.5 stars.
