Lack Wake proves that something genuinely weird and offbeat can be constructed out of what are otherwise fairly standard parts; you've never seen a movie quite like it, even if you've seen hundreds of movies that are sort of like it.
Shot as found footage (but no shaky camera) in a pseudo-documentary style story rather than having a plot unfold around a defined set of characters. The story twists and turns, evolving continuously. When you think you've discovered the main character and then they're eaten, beaten or exploded. The film is bold, brazen and makes every effort to push the envelope when it comes to non-traditional and non-linear story telling.
The plot is more of a downward spiral than a typical story with multiple characters taking center stage.
The umbrella term to describe this low-budget feature would be "found-footage horror," but beyond that, it's also a paranoid apocalyptic thriller, a zombie movie, a Lovecraftian "weird tale," a Roger Corman-esque exploitation flick, a Michael Crichton medical mystery - the list goes on and on, as if director took every disparate type of sci-fihorror movie they ever thought was cool, threw them all in a Cuisinart, and hit "puree".
