Lake Placid

We spent the day working on the website and watching bad monster movies on SciFi. No better way to relax and enjoy a long weekend!

Actually, not all of the movies were bad; we saw “Lake Placid” all the way through for the first time. As giant crocodile movies go–and there are enough of them to qualify as a sub-genre–it’s actually very good. Good cast (Bridget Fonda, Oliver Platt, Bill Pullman, and Betty White in a hilarious cameo), and good script.

Amazing what you can do with those two ingredients, even when the plot is pretty much the same get-the-giant-monster thing we’ve seen rehashed hundreds of times since the Fifties.
