Lake of the Dead

Lake of the Dead

Directed by Kåre Bergstrøm

A group of friends (author Bernhard, his wife Sonja, psychoanalyst Kai, magazine editor Gabriel, lawyer Harald Gran and his fiancée Liljan) venture into the Osterdal forests to join Liljan's brother Bjørn at his remote cabin. Liljan's suspicion that her brother is in danger are confirmed when they arrive to find his dog dead and no sign of him. The gang is spooked further by a legend associated with the cabin: that a man who lived there once killed his sister and her lover and then drowned himself in the lake. Since then, it is said that anyone who stays in the cabin will be driven to the same fate.

A group of friends ventures into the forest to join their friend Bjørn at his remote cabin. They arrive to find his dog dead and no sign of him.
