Product Description

Cold-blooded terror awaits just below the surface of this fast-paced and funny action thriller that delivers twice the jolts, scares and bite of the original! Suspecting that another giant croc has begun to wreak havoc on the populace, Lake Placid's easygoing Sheriff, James Riley (Schneider) and a beautiful Fish and Wildlife agent Emma Warner (LaFleur), must form an uneasy alliance with a cocky big-game hunter (McMurray) and his guide (Joe Holt) to capture the beast. Meanwhile Riley's rebellious young son Scott (Chad Collins) sets out on a lake-side camping trip with the locals - including a hottie named Kerrie (Alicia Ziegler) - and finds he has to fight for his life or become the crocodile's next meal. But only crazy, croc-loving Sadie Bickerman (Leachman) knows that these predators have multiplied and are determined to consume the whole town...one bite at a time!

Amazon.com

Viewers get three times the crocodile action in this low-budget sequel to 1999's horror-comedy Lake Placid. John Schneider is the small-town sheriff investigating a string of attacks on swimmers in the same lake that played host to the monster croc in the previous picture; Cloris Leachman is the blithely amoral sister to Betty White's character, who shares her sibling's penchant for nurturing the beasts. Shot in Bulgaria (which accounts for some of the bit players' accents) and released Stateside on The Sci-Fi Channel, Lake Placid 2's won't win over fans of the first picture, which at least offered a few laughs and chills; this film's chief virtue are the bloody attacks and a touch of skin from the supporting players. Otherwise, it's a minefield of leaden dialogue and performances (Schneider and Leachman are fine, but the cast of teen victims are dreadful, save Alicia Ziegler), and the CGI crocs look threadbare at best. Undiscerning horror fans looking for a few camp laughs may be the picture's best audience. --Paul Gaita

Looking around all I see are negative reviews for Lake Placid 2 and I have to wonder what was everyone expecting? While the original did get over with the audience it's not seen as a classic of the genre, but as an enjoyable movie. Did anyone really expect Lake Placid 2 to be some kind of classic? The budget is obviously very low and Sci-Fi Pictures was involved right there you should know what to expect.

I see so many reviews calling this the worst movie ever; come on people lighten up. Is Lake Placid 2 a bad movie? Hell yeah, but it's also a lot of fun. The cast and crew knew the kind of movie they were making and make a B-movie that isn't meant to be taken seriously. All the comedy and idiotic moments are intentional.

Anybody who has read my reviews knows I'm not the biggest fan of CGI; I don't like and I probably never will. But the CGI in Lake Placid 2 is the best. And by best I mean worst. It's always easy to spot the CGI. Unless used very little you can always spot it and that sort of takes me out of the movie, but here the CGI is so fake looking it just makes the movie more fun. The Crocodiles are CGI and they look like something from Playstation. And the CGI gore also looks like something you would see playing Playstation.

Remember those old super low budget movies where they would put a guy a monsters suit and have him run around chasing people? Well Lake Placid 2 is sort of like that only with the CGI. Every time one of the Crocodiles appears on screen it's damn hysterical. Normally I hate CGI, but in this case I loved it since it really makes the movie even funnier.

The screenplay was written by Todd Hurvitz & Howie Miller and yeah it was a silly screenplay filled with characters saying and doing the dumbest of things.

I once decried all those quickie SyFy (nee Sci-Fi) movies. The overnight-written scripts, the over-the-weekend CGI effects, the second/third/fourth tier actors. Not sophisticated enough for erudite and discerning me. However, I found myself always tuning in to "the most dangerous night on television" to see the next big threat bested by a small gutsy band (hero, heroine, and several extras to be eaten/destroyed/immolated, etc). Why? As one of those Vietnam era vets, I cherished my weekends at the local drive-in in the 60's and 70's where, oddly enough, the same type of movies played. Back then it was men in rubber monster suits demolishing miniature sets, or men in rubber alien costumes carrying away beautiful kicking blonds, or men in rubber . . . well, you get the point. So, does a movie like "Lake Placid 2" remind me of my youth, or does it give me one more Saturday night to throw popcorn and laugh at the screen? Doesn't matter. I love this movie for the little pleasure it gives. Like hearing your favorite Christmas carol once a year. You roll your eyes and think "not that old song again," and when no one is looking you smile and sing along.

My disc certainly has special features, three featurettes, ‘Sex, Guns, and Croc-n-Roll,’ the making of the film; ‘Surviving a Crocodile Attack,’ real safety tips illustrated with scenes from the film; and best of all, ‘Lake Placid 2: The “Gnawed Up” Version,’ which fast forwards through everything but the croc attacks and the topless scenes. Just like real folks do at home. As for the film, it is strictly for fun. What I call a summer movie. Check your brains at the door and plunge right in to Lake Placid for a gator of a good time!

Lake Placid 2 doesn't have the same story as Lake Placid 3 which is good. As the other movies the people are stalked by the giant Alligator who never stops the chase. Good movie for the collector of Lake Placid movies or for anyone who enjoys action of an animal.

When Lake Placid came out in 1999 it was a bit of a surprise hit and better than it had a right to be, partly because it was a campy ode to monster movies of the 1950's. Still, it was not a film that I thought would have been worthy of generating a sequel, particularly so many years later. Lake Placid 2 originally premiered on the Sci-Fi Channel several months ago but has now been released on DVD in an unrated version. More on that in a moment.

Once again were back at the quaint Maine setting and the serene lake where the first film took place. John Schneider is Sheriff Riley, living with his teenaged son Scott (Chad Collins). I have to say that Schneider looks very good. With his hair longer, he looks almost as young as he did in his Dukes of Hazzard days, and much younger than he did in Smallville. Unfortunately Schneider seems to know he's in a bit of a clunker here and doesn't generate a lot of electricity for a guy in the lead role.

The plot in Lake Placid is pretty identical to the first film with just new characters: Small town sheriff, cute co-star Emily(Lefleur) who is an agent of the Fish & Wildlife department, and another crazy old hag. This time its scary looking Cloris Leachman playing Sadie Bickerman, the sister of Betty White's character from the original film. With two Mary Tyler Moore show alums used so far, who's on tap for Lake Placid 3, Valerie Harper?

Anyway, after the first crocodile attack, Riley mobilizes his, um, deputy to begin a search of the lake along with Emily who is apparently an old flame but that's never complexly explained. Their search is interrupted by the appearance of a big game hunter named Struthers and his assistant Ahmad who've come to kill the beast.
