Editorial Reviews

Get ready for a living, feeding nightmare when a swarm of gigantic crocodiles terrorizes a secluded country lake. When local wildlife is brutally mauled and campers are reduced to carcasses, biologist Nathan Bickerman (Colin Ferguson) knows a voracious predator is on the loose. So does a feisty female hunting guide (Yancy Butler) out for her next trophy. As the body count rises, the local sheriff tries to keep things quiet and keep the tourists coming. But when the horrifying, hulking truth emerges, can anyone stop these cold-blooded killers before they claim their next victim? Lake Placid 3 is pulse-pounding, adrenaline-pumping, pure horror film fun.

Customer Reviews

Acting--Well good acting.
D. Meeker
Hitting a new low, it might be best if this saga came to an end, but with Sy Fy's low standards, this franchise can go on for some time.
This movie is so stupid I don't know where to start.

Lake Placid was a fun, humorous film when it was released in 1999. It was followed in 2005 by the made-for-TV Lake Placid 2, which starred John Schneider and Cloris Leachman. It was entertaining, but it didn't really compare to the first.

Now, Lake Placid 3 surfaces and it fares about the same as the second entry. The special effects are about what you would expect from a Sci-Fi channel film. The storyline is actually fairly good, however. It involves the grandson of Leachman from the 2nd film, played by Eureka star Colin Ferguson, and his attempts to kill the crocodiles after it begins to kill off the elk population in his quiet Maine town. Along for the ride are Yancy Buter (of Witchblade) and the great Michael Ironside (as the rough and tough sheriff.)

It's not a bad film. It is sure entertaining and it is a fun way to kill a couple of hours if you have nothing else to do.

Try not to think to hard about the impossibilities of cold blooded pre-historic crocodiles not having to bask long hours in the sun. Don't think about the young boy who has fed these same crocs for TWO years without anyone noticing any crocodiles anywhere. Nor think about the giant crocs knowledge of household layouts or their ability to quickly move and navigate through dense woods. The monster size crocs look like they are made of rubber.

The movie has a couple with a son move into a home when grandma dies. Grandma kept a chainsaw in the refrigerator. On the first day, the son finds the crocs and feeds them as pets, careful not to get too close. Unlike adults, boats, and automobiles, the crocs don't attack him. Dad is a wildlife ranger and mom is a Realtor. There is a sheriff who claims there are no crocs. The lake has been searched with sonar. The are four college kids out camping/ swimming on the lake. There is also a woman who is a guide for poaching elk who takes out a party which include one college kid searching for his girlfriend who is part of the said four. The story is simple. You could probably guess most of it by now and the only real question is who lives and who dies. The movie includes the standard 1980's three gratuitous nude scenes, including one early full frontal in the unrated version. One sex scene. PLOT SPOILER: The babysitter keeps her clothes on.

Okay, I watched this when it came on the Syfy Channel for the first time earlier this year. When I watched it I thought it was pretty good for a made-for TV movie. I borrowed it from my friend on the Unrated DVD and watched it again. I am now confident with my decision that Lake Placid 3 is much better than Lake Placid 2. Still, it is nowhere near as good as the first one. Now that I've said that, here's the breakdown.

1. Directing--This was a well shot film. Nice directing from G.E. Furst even though this was his first film.
2. Script--Well done writing by David Reed. This was his first movie script and it was pretty good. Some bad dialogue here and there but not too bad.
3. Acting--Well good acting. I like this performance from Colin Ferguson the most. And of course let's not forget the legendary Michael Ironside who is always good. Also notable is the very pretty young actress Kacey Barnfeild who plays Ellie in the movie.

Now for the content review.
Rated R for bloody creature violence/UNRATED

1. Sex/Nudity=8/10. There are three scenes of nudity, one incuding a brief full-frontal shot. Worse than the first two.
2. Violence/Gore=8/10. I personally thought that this was more violent than the second one. There is not a ton of bloodshed, but there's enough. Nicely done decapitation.
3. Language=3/10. There are a few mild profanities in it because it's a TV film. Nothing too bad.

OVERALL---5/5 Rating. I liked this movie. Very nicely done Syfy Original Film. Let's hope for Lake Placid 4 sometime in the future.

The first two films in the "Lake Placid" series featured Betty White and Cloris Leachman, which made them first-rate high camp. Unfortunately, there are no octogenarian crocodile aficionados here to flesh out the cast and provide humorous comic relief. "Lake Placid 3" comes across as a much more routine giant aquatic creature gone wild movie from the folks at Syfy. If you are into creature features played straight against terrible CGI, this is a great choice; if you were hoping for a more tongue-in-cheek approach, this may be disappointing. The film opens with Syfy regular Velizar Binev as Dimitri, a grocery store owner with anger management issues giving two teens a ride into the woods. The girl is extremely cute, but unfortunately she doesn't stick around long due to a bad case of crocodylus interruptus.

After a rapid progression of flashbacks, we meet the protagonists, Nathan and Susan Bickerman (Colin Ferguson and Kirsty Mitchell) and their insufferable son Connor (Jordan Grehs) who are now vacationing in the cabin on the lake which comes fully furnished with a chainsaw in the refrigerator. Nathan is a geeky EPA zoologist, Susan is an abhorrent Realtor, and Connor is the idiot who steals roasts from Dimitri's store to feed the crocodiles, because he's really smart. Michael Ironside is the best actor present playing Sheriff Willinger, a no nonsense kind of guy who denies the existence of crocs in the lake. Absolutely terrible dialogue plagues the film throughout: for example, after Connor is caught shoplifting, his horrible absentee mother says "Did I eat too much chili when he was in my womb?" Later, despite being 100% to blame for the mess, Connor tries to pin everything on his parents with "I thought it was a rule of nature that parents took care of their kids!
