It's no secret to our regular Screen Rant readers that I truly enjoy a cheesy B-movie. If a movie has been shown on SyFy, only came out on DVD or was distributed by The Asylum then chances are I have either watched it or own it. Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, Sharkoctopus, Anaconda 4: The Blood Orchid (yes they made a 4th film) - I've had the pleasure of watching them all.
That is why I was super-excited when I came across the trailer for Lake Placid 3 the other day and just had to share it with my fellow B-movie lovers (I know you're out there.) The first Lake Placid was a fantastic horror comedy starring the Oliver Platt and Betty White; it was immediately obvious to any B-movie fan that this franchise was ripe for lackluster cheesy sequels - and we haven't been disappointed yet.
Here is the Lake Placid 3 synopsis sent to us by Sony Pictures Entertainment:
Get ready for a living, feeding nightmare when a swarm of gigantic crocodiles terrorizes a secluded country lake. When local wildlife is brutally mauled and campers are reduced to carcasses, biologist Nathan Bickerman (Colin Ferguson) knows a voracious predator is on the loose. So does a feisty female hunting guide (Yancy Butler) out for her next trophy. As the body count rises, the local sheriff tries to keep things quiet and keep the tourists coming. But when the horrifying, hulking truth emerges, can anyone stop these cold blooded killers before they claim their next victim? Lake Placid 3 is pulse pounding, adrenaline pumping, pure horror film fun. The film contains graphic violence and full frontal nudity.
Sounds interesting right? Yeah, I'm not too interested in the story either but I'm hoping there are more cheesy, CGI blood-splattered kills than the all 3 Carnosaur films combined. As with any B-movie, audiences always expect to see some sort of nudity; it's almost required by contract to be in there. That's why I find it odd that the press release boasts about "full frontal nudity." I Wonder why they didn't also advertise cheesy acting and laughable death scenes?
We have two trailers for you today - the SFW green band trailer and the NSFW red bad trailer. Watch them below:
The Red Band Trailer contains nudity and you can watch it HERE.
Colin Ferguson (Eureka), Yancy Butler (Kickass), Kacey Barnfield (Resident Evil: Afterlife), and Michael Ironside (Terminator Salvation) all earn paychecks starring in the campy, blood-thirsty horror film Lake Placid 3. I'm a big fan of Ferguson and is there anybody that doesn't love watching Michael Ironside on screen?
Lake Placid 3 snaps it's jaws on DVD shelves October 27th, 2010.
