LAKE PLACID (Theatrical Release USA 1999)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Lake Placid fits the bill for a re-watchable cult classic. Intended to be a horror film, at many junctures in its story, it seems more like a horror comedy movie rather than a straight horror movie. Perhaps that tone is preset due to this crocodile being placed in the state of Maine. The movie earns its watch especially for cult movie fans.
