Lake Placid 2 (2007)
Movie Review by The Cryptkeeper
04.24.08

Lake Placid 2 (2007) The quirky residents of Lake Placid once again become gator bait in this horror sequel. Eight years after the town was devastated by a giant crocodile, the creature's numerous offspring return for some human snacks of their own. It's up to the local sheriff (John Schneider), his ex-girlfriend, an EPA agent and a professional croc hunter to stop the bloodthirsty beasts before they kill again. -netflix

If you read my review of the original Lake Placid, you will find that it is one of my favorite giant killer creature films. Well, you will not hear me uttering those words when it comes to this sequel. I have to agree with The Gravedigger on this when he said it should be named LAKE FLACID. Lake Placid 2 is not even in the same league as the original and really doesn't deserve to carry the name. The cast in the sequel is like a group of stunt doubles for the actors in the first. They lifted half of the character profiles from the original... and then threw in some teeny bopper bullshit to pander a bit. I mean... John Schneider as our hero... come on. Was Tom Wopat all booked up doing Lifetime Movies? No Betty White this time, however... they at least chose a reasonable replacement for her character in Cloris Leachman. She was pretty funny in this, but I half expected her stand up and proclaim "Death to King Louis". You Mel Brooks fans will get that one.

The effects in this one, if you can call them that, looked like some grade school 3D gaming design class project for retarded kids. Ok, that might be taking it too far... but they were pretty bad. I would have much rather seen some animatronics for this one most of the time... maybe even a kid holding a giant crocodile toy real close to the camera. I realize this was a low-budget sequel, but please spend some of the money on things other than cocaine for the director. Maybe spring for some decent effects, some decent looking actresses to show their boobs instead of those skanky looking ones they had playing the teen girls.

But, I digress. I am probably venting more than I should in this review, but they really pissed me off with this sequel. Don't even bother watching this one, unless you just want to make fun of it. It doesn't hold a candle to the original... too bad someone didn't hold a candle to this one... and burn it before I had to see it.
