Stanley Caldwell (Creator/JuddNelson) is suffering from writer's block while writing the script for a by-the-numbers SlasherMovie. As his agent pesters him to get on with his work, he decides to put some of his favorite hobby into the story: serial murder. Stanley is actually an emotionless psychopath who kidnaps young women, keeps them captive inside his waterside cabin in the woods, then drowns them in the nearby lake. He keeps the corpses in an underwater cemetary he frequents.

* RevealingInjury: Stanley eventually kidnaps the screenwriter who was doing research into his life, but she initially thinks he's just overdoing a MethodActing approach. He leans over to show her a scar on his arm from a late female victim, leading to the dawning realization that he's the monster she's been looking for.

* EvilLaugh: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]]. One of Stanley's early victims doesn't take his repeated attempts to murder him serious and laughs at him like an idiot. After Stanley finally kills him with a boat engine, he lets out a genuinely villainous laugh.

* SinisterScythe: Stanley kidnaps a guy from the set who annoyed him to torture him to death. He grabs a set of increasingly scarier weapons from a shelf to scare the victim, ending with a scythe. When the victim claims that it's just a prop, Stanley pokes him with the blade to dissuade him from that notion.




to:

* YourHeadAsplode: Subverted. Stanley sticks a firecracker into someone's ear as an IronicEcho to a comment the guy made earlier about "lighting a firecracker under your ass". He puts it out just before it goes off, but he [[BuriedAlive buries the man alive]] instead while lighting fireworks on top of his casket.

* PrimaDonnaDirector: The movie-within-a-movie ''Cabin by the Lake'''s director Mike Helton is a complete tool and sleaze who sleeps with his female leads in exchange for future job ofers, constantly hurls abuse at his co-workers and demands to micromanage every aspect of the production while falsely claiming to be an expert on the (not actually) deceased serial killer the film is about. After Stanley gets rid off him, no one except the two female starts really question his dissapearance.
