It is no surprise that the straight-to-dvd sequel push has been getting bigger and bigger. With films like WRONG TURN 2 and RETURN TO HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL, pretty soon no film will be untouched. Well now you can feast your eyes upon LAKE PLACID 2, being released on January 29, 2008.
Arrow In The Head got the scoop from Fox Home Entertainment about the dvd sequel, which they call "gory, gruesome action". I suppose that's a lot more than the original had!
In an all out battle between man and beast, a local sheriff teams up with a wildlife agent and a big game hunter to kill four bloodthirsty offspring from the first fearsome creatures of the original campy-horror film. John Schneider (“Dukes Of Hazzard,” “Smallville”), Sam McMurray (“The King of Queens,” “The Tracy Ullman Show”) and Sarah Lafleur (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “Crossing Jordan”) star as the trio on a mission to save the town from the gigantic reptiles. The film also features Academy Award winner Cloris Leachman (Best Supporting Actress, The Last Picture Show, 1972, “Malcolm In The Middle”) as a croc-lover bent on saving the creatures.
The dvd retails at $26.98 and will be available in Widescreen (for you film purists) and Full Screen. It will also featured in 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround sound with English, Spanish and French subtitles. Also the dvd is packed with some features that I can only expect from a dvd sequel.
Lake Placid 2 DVD Special Features:
