A group of young documentary filmmakers set off to uncover the true story behind the Black Water murders, a series of brutal killings where women were found dumped in the woods, savagely slain, with their mutilated bodies completely drained of blood. In an attempt to exonerate the man accused of the crimes, they journey into the wilderness where the deaths occurred and find themselves face to face with a form of evil they could have never imagined. What began as a mission to save a wrongly convicted man turns into a battle for their own lives.

"Black Water Vampire" is another in a long line of found footage films that have come out in the last few years. Some of them have been entertaining while others have been just plain bad, Black Water fits in with those that were entertaining very nicely.

The film starts off as a murder/mystery about a town who seemed quick to blame a local man for killing four young woman evens though there was no evidence linking him to any of the murders. So Danielle Mason and her crew set out to find out what really happened to the four women and perhaps clear the man who has been wrongly accused before he is put to death.

"Black Water Vampire" has a few things going for it that makes it better than most like it. One is the film's cast, each actor does a fantastic job playing their characters and making them as believable as possible. Second is the story, it's murder/mystery really keeps your attention, you are constantly wanting to know more about the case. And last is the major turn the story takes later in the film as it tops the story off with several twists and turns and it reaches it's shocking climax.

I really enjoyed this found footage film, it was engaging, frightening and highly original which is not an easy thing to do anymore. If you like horror then I recommend checking this out, you will be glad you did. The film is available now on DVD with Special Features that include:
