Lake Placid is an enjoyable and escapist movie that has the confidence to laugh at itself and its genre.
Despite the gore and blood of the movie, Lake Placid has its tongue firmly placed in its cheek, and ironically, this leaves the viewer with a 'feel good' perspective.
Cynics may dismiss Lake Placid for its lack of intricate plot, but to do this is to miss the point and the movie's subtle irony. If you like (and laugh at)films such as Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream, you'll love Lake Placid.
I'm sure that the years will be kind to Lake Placid and give it 'cult status'. The movie has a timeless quality and all the ingredients and actors for enjoyment.
