An extremely simple but amusing slasher. Three people in a remote cottage, a masked killer stalking them, the rest of the film just writes itself. Don't expect anything fancy, any big twists or new takes on the genre. Sick isn't that kind of film. Instead, you get a proper slasher flick, without any cruft.

Parker and Miri are two best friends, who decide to quarantine at Parker's father's lake house. What is supposed to be a fun weekend among girls quickly turns into a deadly pursuit when a masked man invades the house and tries to kill both girls. With nobody around to help them, they'll have to fend for themselves.

The two leads or solid, Hyams does a decent job building up the tension and the reveal, while not exactly great, is sufficient. It's difficult to be excited about any of it since it's really not that different from a million other slasher flicks out there, but the execution is pleasant enough, and that's worth something. Good horror filler.
