Nino Aldi’s mystery thriller ‘Stillwater’ puts the viewer in the midst of an unraveling mystery, one that has dangerous consequences for those involved.
“A weekend camping trip among six old friends in Northern Minnesota’s “Boundary Waters” turns tragic after one dies under mysterious circumstances, triggering further turmoil as they attempt to unmask the killer within their own group.”
Tyler Ritter, Carlena Britch, Eric Michael Roy star in this movie that captures you attention from the start and manages to keep it, despite some sloppiness, until the end, finishing things off with a dramatic and surprising twist.
Dawson (Ritter) is dealing with his recent divorce from Ashley, who cheated on him, and is venturing to a camping trip reunion with his long time friends Willie (Paul Elia), Jack (Travis Quentin Young), Cooper (Ryan Vincent), Richie (Nino Aldi), and Leech (Eric Michael Roy) where they plan to drink, relive old times, and unwind.
Things immediately go off the rails when Leech brings along uninvited guests Wizard (Mike Foy), Fauna (Carlena Britch), and Vera (Georgie Guinane) who don’t immediately come off friendly, seem disconnected and awkward, and throw the mood of the reunion off.
As the night rolls in, the group starts to party and things elevate when Wizard supplies some heavier drugs that send the party to a whole new level, and knocks them out only to awake with foggy memories.
When the group can’t find Cooper, things start getting tense, only getting more tense when they discover Cooper’s body.
The finger pointing beings and the paranoia sets in, adding a deep layer of mystery that will keep you guessing.
If you can ignore a slightly messy storyline, which doesn’t detract from the film, the movie is solid with good performances from a talented cast.
