It's been only a couple of years since the deadly encounter with the monstrous saltwater crocodile in Lake Placid (1999), and once more, something horrible lurks beneath the surface of Maine's silent Black Lake. This time, the gruesome death of an employee from the Environmental Protection Agency and a sudden spate of disappearances set in motion a thorough investigation, as Sheriff James Riley and the Fish and Wildlife Agent, Emily, find themselves with their backs to the wall before the tourist season. Now, the hunt for the scaly prehistoric predator is on. Can they stop the savage beast from the depths of Lake Placid? Written by Nick Riganas

Did You Know?


While waiting for mama croc to show up, Struthers is startled by a noise. He looks at the source of the noise, then says, "I hate that rabbit". This is an oft-repeated tagline of Yosemite Sam, directed at Bugs Bunny in numerous cartoons. See more »


After the boat 'hits a rock' and Frank has been pulled out of the lake, his shirt is clearly seen to be soaking wet and he is handed a towel. The camera cuts to one of the characters telling him he is "being ridiculous". The camera then cuts back to show Frank is wearing a miraculously dry shirt. See more »


Sheriff James Riley: [jump scene with sudden ominous music but only a rabbit appears; then Sheriff says in an Elmer Fudd voice...] I *hate* that wabbit!

Gives You the Good Stuff
3 February 2008 | by purbanSee all my reviews

A sci-fi channel flick with Bo Duke; before you even rent/watch the movie, that should tell you not to take the film too seriously. All too often in these creature features, you get jipped on the violence, gore, nudity, and creature effects. Too often, the creature is seen for a total of 47 seconds in the entire movie. None of those things can be said about Lake Placid 2. It's a B-movie with some horrible editing and acting--but it's got all of the stuff that makes a bad movie good. While the CGI isn't always that spectacular (they even had a cheesy CGI plane-landing), the crocs are on-screen just as much as the actors are, and the body count is surprisingly high. It loosely follows the story of the original, with Cloris Leachman in for Betty White (and, actually, she raises herself above the other performances in the film). It doesn't strike the horror/comedy balance of the first film at all, but this is more of a B-movie creature flick than a true sequel. Compared to other low-budget films in the same genre, this one actually manages to rise above most of the others out there, and gives you the good stuff along with the laughs.
