Looks like we jumped the gun a bit reporting that the new working title for David R. Ellis’ Shark Night 3D is The Briar Lake Murders. Instead it’s looking like The Briar Lake Murders is actually one of Ellis’ NEXT projects.
According to a website called thebriarlakemurders.com, Ellis’ cinematographer on the project will be the legendary Daniel Pearl (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre 1974, A Return to Salem’s Lot, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2003), and here’s the synopsis:
A group of rude and insensitive city kids take a weekend vacation to Briar Lake, a picturesque town overlooking a beautiful lake, which to most outsiders would appear to be a peaceful small town. Having zero respect for anyone outside of their group, they are confronted by the hostile and eccentric residents. Following a bizarre experience in the town’s diner, they quickly retreat to the protection of their borrowed vacation lake house, where they plan to let loose and celebrate their weekend out of the city.
After an unexpected visit from the local police, the long weekend is cut short. Two of the locals have been brutally murdered, and this group of “outsiders” become the prime suspects. When the string of murders spins out of control, the group must come together to unravel Briar Lake’s sordid past and uncover the hidden secrets.
A vacation is always fun until you die!
As both films concern a group of kids vacationing on a lake, no wonder we were confused! In any event, keep it here for more on both Shark Night 3D (or whatever it’s going to be called) and The Briar Lake Murders.
