The fourth part in the Lake Placid series
26 June 2017 | by (Ohio/PA border) – See all my reviews

Released to TV in 2012 and directed by Don Michael Paul, "Lake Placid: The Final Chapter" chronicles events at the crocagator-infested Black Lake, Maine, after the entire lake has been fenced-off with a huge electric fence. Things go awry when a bus containing the Marshfield High swim team accidentally goes to Black Lake instead of Clear Lake. Elisabeth Röhm plays the sheriff, Poppy Lee Friar her daughter, the heroine-by-accident, and Yancy Butler the sassy & droll game warden. Paul Nicholls plays the sheriff's beau and Benedict Smith his son, the latter seeming to have a thing for the heroine. Robert Englund is also on hand as a greedy poacher.

This is the fourth movie in the Lake Placid series and it's about on par with the original 1999 flick, as far as story goes, but it lacks that one's production values. The film features an interesting group of females in the cast, but they're sub-par compared to the previous two installments, although Röhm (the sheriff) and Scarlett Byrne (Brittany) are worthy. As the third sequel hindered by a TV budget it's a throwaway horror flick, but it's generally entertaining for what it is, part serious, part amusing and part campy. It surprisingly even tries to throw in a couple of reverent, moving moments.

The film runs 86 minutes and was shot in the sticks outside Sofia, Bulgaria.
