"What isn't wrong with this movie? First of all, lets start the ridiculous use of stock footage from a discovery channel program about wolves, terribly editted into the movie. Next... the use of a white man in the role of the indian, who by the way, couldn't act a lick. We also see some of the worst acting from the worst assemblence of has-beens. Corey Haim and Mario Lopez should immediately fire their agents. Nothing in this movie made any sense. Talk about huge plot holes! There is about 78 continuity errors. What power of evil are we dealing with here? The evil that bubbles from the lake has such random, ludicrous powers that control a wolf, can make cars mysteriously run out of gas, knows how to use a laptop computer and can turn our beloved Corey Haim into a raving psycho. This movie is the biggest bag over the head. There seems like there are four movies intertwined into one awful plot. Some scenes should have been left on the cutting room floor, especially any involving the incompetent police officer who wore the same jeans throughout the movie. Can we get a better wardrobe budget please! All in all, this movie looks like it cost $1000 to make and grossed even less. However, if you want a good laugh, watch this movie. You'll chuckle at the fact that Corey haim is 35 years old and once again playing a teenager. Will this guy ever escape typecasting? The sad fact is, the director didn't even think to shave Haim's dirtstache before shooting. This movie should have been called "Script should have been thrown in the lake". I actually felt nausious after viewing this piece of garbage. I totaly lost faith in the American filmmakers guild. I don't know how this movie made it to HBO or let alone was funded for. The more I think about it, the more it has become clear to me that everybody should see this movie just to laugh and realize that Hollywood is spuing us a huge pile of puke."

"FEVER LAKE is tedious, derivative, full of plot holes and inconsistencies. Corey Haim, the glory boy of the 80s, tries playing a college freshman, and even though he still looks pretty young, he doesn't look young enough to be that. Add Bo Hopkins as the local sheriff, looking dyspeptic to say the least and Michael Wise as a demon spouting Indian, you have the first inclination of the movie's problems. IN the opening scene, a father chops up his wife, and looks up at his son who has been hidden in the attic and says "You're cursed..just like me." Then his eyes glow green and that's it for that segment. Segue into the present day (although one has to wonder; the opening sequence looks like it was in the 40s; if that was the case, the little boy would be at least in his fifties by now). Anyway, Corey has invited five of his friends to join him at where else, Fever Lake, for a weekend getaway. Of course, the townspeople don't cotton to strangers so they immediately suspect the kids of something, although the local teen waitress tells them the gory history of Fever Lake, which is reinforced by the local fish bait store manager. If you listen to his tales, you will find that the script doesn't stick to the stories; for instance, there's no little boy this time. Well, the evil finally gets released from the lake and the kids find themselves hacked up....if you can't figure out who the killer is, you haven't watched enough slasher films.
This wouldn't be so bad, but the acting is abysmmal, the direction shoddy, and the background music altogether annoying and inappropriate.
FEVER LAKE will go on Mr. haim's resume as another attempt to recapture the youth of the 80s."
BEWARE......(of this movie)

"now as much as I like Corey Haim, I think we can all say that he's been is some BAD B-movies since his glory days of the 80's...buy my goodness does this one take the cake!
Even Corey fans will find absolutely nothing worthwhile about this one.
