Bill Pullman (Independence Day, The Grudge), Bridget Fonda (Jackie Brown), Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges) and Oliver Platt (X-Men: First Class) share an appetite for sheer adventure when a tranquil New England lakefront erupts into an action-packed den of destruction in this "monster of a hit" (Wireless Magazine)!
An investigative team, armed with state-of-the-art equipment, high-powered weaponry and a biting sense of sarcasm, must work together to defeat Black Lake's most ferocious resident: a 30-foot prehistoric crocodile! Written by David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal, Boston Legal), directed by Steve Miner (Halloween H20, Friday The 13th Part 2), and co-starring Betty White as the cantankerous Mrs. Bickerman, this terrifying tale of survival "combines humor and thrills with remarkable deftness" (New York Post).
Why We Love It
"Scream Factory’s release of Lake Placid of Blu-ray will no doubt be welcome to fans of the film, and of the genre. It sports a very good transfer and a nice little set of supplemental material, which is reason enough to pick it up and check it out for yourself." – Tim Salmons, The Digital Bits
"Bonus features are light but exclusive to this home video edition, making the overall package worth the price for fans who love this guilty pleasure of horror and comedy." - M. Enois Duarte, High-Def Digest
"From a presentation standpoint, this disc is miles ahead of Fox’s lone, pitiful DVD release from 2000. The studio never even bothered to issue an anamorphic update, so the move to high-definition is a vast improvement that immediately justifies tossing out the old disc." – Brett Gallman, Oh, The Horror!
"Lake Placid has the sense to go by quickly in 82 minutes as good, larky fun, supplying Mr. Croc’s attacks with several gruesome surprises, can’t-help-it giggles and, yes, even an ecological message. Even if this 1999 horror-comedy wouldn’t be one’s immediate choice to be re-packaged by Shout! Factory, how can you dislike a movie where our heroes lure the big croc with a cow hanging from a helicopter?" – Jeremy Kibler, Diabolique Magazine
