Watch Lake Placid 2
- 1 hr 24 min
In the 2007 horror-comedy film Lake Placid 2, we follow a group of people as they try to survive a killer crocodile that is lurking in Lake Placid, Maine. The movie takes place in the same location as the original Lake Placid film, but this time the story follows a completely new cast of characters. Sheriff Riley (played by John Schneider) is tasked with investigating a series of gruesome deaths surrounding the lake, which leads him to suspect that a giant crocodile is responsible. The crocodile in question has grown in size and now measures a whopping 30 feet long.
The movie introduces us to a group of teenagers who are spending their summer vacation in a cabin near the lake. One of the teens, Emily (played by Sarah Lafleur), is visiting her uncle who owns a cabin in the area. On her visit, she meets a guy named Scott (played by Chad Collins) and the two get romantically involved. Along with them, Emily's uncle brings along a few friends to help him with some work around the cabin, including a wildlife photographer and a drunken hunter.
As the group gets settled in, one of the teens wanders off alone to go skinny dipping in the lake. She quickly becomes the first victim of the crocodile and the body count starts to add up from there. The rest of the group become trapped in the cabin and must come up with a plan to either kill the crocodile or escape the area.
One of the main themes of the movie is the clash between the old and the new. The sheriff represents the old, traditional way of approaching things, whereas the teenagers and younger characters represent the new, more modern way of dealing with situations. They use their cellphones to call for help and rely on modern technology to defend themselves.
Throughout the movie, there are several comedic moments that balance out the horror and gore. For example, one of the characters, the drunken hunter, often mistakes the crocodile for a bear and tries to shoot it with his shotgun. The crocodile also has an insatiable appetite and will eat anything in sight, including a dog and a deer.
Despite its B-movie feel and predictable plot, Lake Placid 2 has some impressive special effects and well-executed action scenes. The crocodile is realistically animated and the kills are both gruesome and creative. Although it may not be the most groundbreaking horror film out there, it's a fun and entertaining way to spend 88 minutes.
In conclusion, Lake Placid 2 follows in the footsteps of its predecessor by delivering a classic monster movie experience. Although it may not be a cinematic masterpiece, it's a fun and entertaining horror-comedy that delivers plenty of laughs and thrills.
