2015 October Horror Challenge #52 "Blood Lake"
Apparently, this movie's original title was "Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys," which is a horrible title that makes the movie sound like a cheap, crappy direct to DVD flick. It IS a cheap, crap direct to DVD flick, but there's no need to ADVERTISE that fact and scream it from the rooftops. People will probably figure that out on their own when Shannen Doherty is the only recognizable star in this movie.
This isn't yo say I didn't enjoy this movie. It's terrible, but I still had fun with it. It's about a bunch of lamprey eels in a small lakeside Michigan town that suddenly start attacking and snacking on the local population. The special effects are silly at times, but it's gory enough to be kind of fun. Most people seem to disagree with me, though, so take that with a grain of salt.
