Horror once-removed does not quite work in this tale from James L. Wilson about a group of ten college students heading out for a get-away weekend. As the students are on the way to the distant lake and their brief escape from school, they try to scare each other with stories about its creepy history. It is said that there is a "devil wind" there that attacks strangers. After the group arrives, they take turns telling tall tales which are then illustrated from start to finish. In one of their stories an abominable snowman hangs a young man and in another, a haunted apartment creates havoc on the youths who had decided to spend the night there. None of the stories is likely to scare modern viewers raised on more frightening fare.
