HASHTAG: #EileenDietz




LAKE ALICE is set during Christmas at an isolated cabin in the subzero temperatures of northern Wisconsin where the days are short and the nights last forever.

The cast includes Brando Eaton (American Sniper), Peter O’Brien (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), Eileen Dietz (The Exorcist), Brad Schmidt (House of Lies), Caroline Tudor (Mortal Combat: Legacy), Laura Niemi (Jobs), and Michael Shamus Wiles (Breaking Bad).

Meeting the family for the first time, Ryan Emerson (Schmidt) must prove his intentions with the Thomas’ daughter, Sarah (Tudor), and win the approval of her father, Greg (O’Brien), while he masks his jealousy for Sarah’s ex-fling,

Tyler (Eaton). As the Thomas family settles in, things start to happen around the cabin; strange footprints by the windows, noises from outside, and a bitter animosity from the locals, including the law enforcement.

As a blizzard descends on Lake Alice, so does the evil from behind the camera, as the Thomas family is hunted down one by one. The family struggles to stay alive as their power in numbers slowly dwindles.

With elements from Psycho, Scream, and The Strangers, the macabre labyrinth of Lake Alice will tingle your soul, and make you wonder who’s really climbing down your chimney this Christmas!
