Lake Dead is a horror movie from 2007 directed by George Bessudo. The movie follows the story of three sisters, Katie (Tara Gerard), Paige (Vanessa Viola), and Sarah (Kelsey Wedeen), who are called to a lake in the middle of nowhere after their grandfather they never knew passed away and left them his cabin. The sisters arrive at the cabin, and things seem fine at first. However, as they explore the cabin, they uncover dark secrets about their family's past. They soon realize that their grandfather was involved in some illegal activities, and that people are after them, trying to get their hands on something he left them.

Things take a turn for the worse when the sisters decide to spend the night and are awoken by masked men attacking them. The girls are kidnapped and taken to a nearby farm, where they are held captive by a group of backwoods psychopaths.

The girls soon learn that they are not alone and that there are other people being held captive on the farm. The siblings try their best to escape, but they soon realize they are up against much more than they bargained for.
