Blood Lake is the most fascinating — and stupefying — shot-on-video slasher that ever escaped from 1987.  A group of unhinged party animals, including adolescent horn-dog Lil’ Tony, embark on a weekend trip filled with Jet Skis, a keg of Busch, and an extended game of quarters.  But look out!  There’s a supernatural killer on the loose who wears cowboy boots and a silk shirt with a rose stitched on it!  Made by real-life friends from Oklahoma on a real-life vacation, Blood Lake is a rewardingly lethal collision of ’80s slasher video-vomit and twisted cinéma vérité madness.  From false metal soundtrack hits to gratuitous scenes of people sleeping, this might be the only movie in history capable of receiving a stamp of approval from both David Lee Roth and Andy Warhol.
