I know–It’s only January, and we’re already talking about Christmas. But it’s never too late/early for a little holiday fear, right?

LAKE ALICE is a Home Invasion thriller with a Holiday twist, and the trailer does just enough to grab my attention with its nonchalant approach and admittedly beautiful cinematography. I can’t say I expect any wheels to be reinvented here, but there’s nothing wrong with delivering the goods in a tried and true format. We’ll be waiting for more release information to come our way, but until then, have a look at the debut trailer and official plot synopsis below.

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.
