Movie about flooding a town
Under the Lake by Stuart WoodsIn the beautiful mountains of North Georgia lies a lake built by an obsessed man at a terrible price. This placid body of water has brought prosperity to an isolated community, and with it, two strangers who intermingle with the insular local folk, strangers probing into crimes against nature from generations past that cannot remain submerged beneath the waters’ surface.
Under the Lake marks the eagerly awaited return to the South of Stuarts Edgar Award winning novel, Chiefs. John Howell, once a top investigative journalist, comes to this backcountry town on the run from a once promising personal and professional life that has somehow gone sour. What he finds is a mystery so deep, so complex, so bizarre, that he cannot concentrate on the book he has come here to write.
The story begins with his entanglement in a subtle, but relentless battle waged by the autocratic town father and the local sheriff against an outcast family, ravaged by its origins. Howell is further drawn in by his involvement with two women – an ambitious young reporter on the prowl for corruption, and a shy backwoods beauty, forsaken by the world because of her family’s ill kept secret. Then, without warning, visits from an otherworldly young girl haunt Howell as his rustic cabin becomes a spectral theater offering strange and frightening images of a hideous event of long ago.

Charlotte Duncan Russell was 8 years old when clouds of eye-stinging smoke drifted over the Sacandaga River Valley. This was no accidental fire. Houses and barns were set ablaze to clear the land. In , the Conklingville Dam was built, and controlled flooding turned a river into the Great Sacandaga Lake, the largest reservoir in New York state. People had to leave their homes and begin a new life somewhere else. Farms, churches, schools, lumber mills, general stores and taverns disappeared. Caskets were unearthed from cemeteries and the remains of loved ones moved to higher ground.
From beginning to end, I was acutely aware of actors being paid to stand in cold water. Suspension of my disbelief in this case would have required psychotropic medications.
