Filmed in Wisconsin:
Clear Lake, WI

Bailey Berg

Clear Lake, WI, a film made in its titular location in southeast Polk County, recently premiered in Hudson and is now screening in limited markets. In the film, a disease breaks out and local preacher (played by Michael Madsen of Reservoir Dogs and Kill Bill) claims the outbreak is punishment for the town’s sins and influences a group of teens to kidnap other townspeople. Fifteen years later, a filmmaker convinces some of the former teenagers to return to Clear Lake. But when they return, all hell breaks loose. The regionally made Hollywood thriller has won awards at several film festivals, including the Audience Choice Award at the Boston Film Festival, and co-stars Clear Lake native Dustin Booth, who also produced it.
