It astounds me to this very day what films get turned into franchises… for better or worse. Case in point: Lake Placid. Still, this final chapter is a bit better than you’d think, and we have the home video details for you right here.
From the Press Release
Horror icon Robert Englund (Nightmare on Elm Street franchise), Yancy Butler (Kick-Ass) and Elisabeth Röhm (TV’s “Heroes”) battle the most bloodthirsty, monster crocodiles on earth in the final installment of the Lake Placid franchise. LAKE PLACID: THE FINAL CHAPTER debuts on unrated DVD February 19th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. In the film a rogue game warden (Butler, returning from Lake Placid 3) breaks out her guns after the schemes of an obsessed poacher (Englund) land a group of high school students into the midst of the man-eating crocodile “nature preserve.”
LAKE PLACID: THE FINAL CHAPTER was directed by Don Michael Paul from a screenplay by David Reed. Jeffrey Beach and Phillip J. Roth produced, with Cherise Honey acting as executive producer. It first aired on Syfy on September 29, 2012. It has a run time of approximately 86 minutes and is unrated.
The crocs are back… and they’re bigger, badder and more brutal than ever. After the deadly predators’ last vicious attack, the government prevented their extermination. Sealed away in a nature preserve, they’ve been growing to record size, awaiting their next chance to feast on human flesh. Now, when a high school swim team takes a wrong turn directly into the crocs’ hunting grounds… dinner is served. As the teens race to avoid the hungry reptiles, they become caught in a showdown between a rogue game warden (Yancy Butler, Kick-Ass) and a demented poacher (Robert Englund, A Nightmare on Elm Street). It’s the last serving of hysterical horror in a finale that shows terror is best served raw.
