|Plucky little low key horror.
Five young couples descend upon spooky old Lake Durand for some rest and recreation.
To pass the time on a windy winter night, the bunch spins a trio of gruesome yarns:
A bigfoot creature stalks the isolated woods...
A haunted hotel gives frat boys a run for their money...
And a psychotic young woman lets loose her pent up fury...
But when the chilling stories are all done, will the group find a horror all their own awaits them...is this terror all too real?
Screams actually musters a certain rough-edged believability, thanks to the average looking amateurs who dot the cast.
The green light zombie in the sophomore 'tale' manages a truly frightful moment, while the climax sequence is proof positive of the power that imagination can exert over the confines of a low budget.
Also known as Howlings of a Winter's Night.
Worth seeking out.
