Scream Factory Ventures Out to Lake Placid

Chris Savage

And the surprises keep on coming! Remember that 1999 flick Lake Placid? Well, the folks over at Scream Factory have just announced that they will be unleashing the flick in a special collector’s edition. But that’s not all, it will be unleashed on Blu-ray for the first time ever!

As per their official Facebook page;

The crocodile-chompin’- Betty-White-swearin’ film LAKE PLACID will be coming from us as a Collector’s Edition this Summer, which also marks its first time on Blu-ray! Released in 1999 and directed by Steve Miner (Friday the 13th Parts 2 & 3, Halloween: H20) this humorous take on the tried-and-true menacing reptile story stars Bridget Fonda (Single White Female), Bill Pullman (The Serpent and the Rainbow) and Oliver Platt (2012). Also notable, the film was written by famous TV Producer/Screenwriter David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal, L.A. Law, Boston Legal).

While we can’t provide a street date at this time, expect this to drop in Mid-Summer. Pre-order links should go up in sometime in April. Look for a full list of extras sometime in May. New key art is also coming soon too but the original theatrical poster will be on the reverse.

          I have stayed away from the sequels because I liked the first one so much, I just knew they would be crapola! We need good quality creature features instead of the endless crap they release from SyFy.

        This first one is the best than the sequels. The sequels are straight to dvd with cheap CGI. I hope that someone else will made a sequel after the first one with great CGI straight to the movie theater instead. DOUBT but a wishful thinking.
