This project is an attempt to help me get dvds that for one reason or another I’ve never seen off of my shelf and give them a watch. Today’s pick is Lake Placid 2.
IMDb: Lake Placid 2 (TV Movie 28 April 2007)
In the sequel to the feature film, man-eating crocodiles return to the lake as two males and one aggressive female crocodile, which is protecting her nest, wreak havoc on the locals.
It looks like those old Duke boys are at it again… Well, one of them anyway, specifically John Schneider who is the male lead. The other well know star is Cloris Leachman. This is a direct sequel to 1999’s Lake Placid and Cloris Leachman play the sister of Betty White’s character. She was a crazy crocodile woman and since the events of the original fim, she has disappeared and been replaced by her sister who coincedently also a crazy crocodile woman. Somehow the original has fallen into just being a local rumor which seems odd. You would think that multiple animal deaths would be something that you remember in less than a decade since it happened. This is another Sci Fi production and unlike Chupacabra Terror, this is a real disappointment. I would suspect that they spent all the money to get the rights to the title and had nothing left to follow through and make the movie with. It’s not terrible on it’s own, but it’s such a huge step down in quality in every way.
