It's not the water that menaces in Wicked Lake, an inept, nasty and absolutely irredeemable entry in the stale torture-porn subgenre of horror.
Laura Kern — New York Times
As tamely unerotic as a straight-to-video Misty Mundae softcore spoof... Wicked Lake proves that even Troma can outclass some.
Aaron Hillis — Village Voice
The flick is so vile and misogynistic -- the women exist solely to titillate -- that even perverts will have a tough time.
