A third trip to Lake Placid.

Intentions were to be the best of the Trilogy. Griff Furst directs this third visit to Lake Placid, Main; where the crocodiles are known for chomping. Nathan Bickerman (Colin Ferguson) is a game warden that relocates his family. Local Sheriff Tony Willinger (Michael Ironside) tries his best to convince everyone that the days of killer crocs are buried in the past. But his son, desperate for a pet, finds baby crocodiles and feeds them until they can satisfy their own growing appetites. The lake and surrounding forest will no longer be safe.

The script is cheesy and the CGI is more or less than mediocre. The plot is the same as the previous two flicks. There is eye candy you can't ignore. And more fun than fright.

Yancy Butler steals the show as the hunting guide. Rounding out the cast: Kristy Mitchell, Mark Evans, James Marchant, Bianca Ilich, Roxanne Pallett, Brian Landon and Kacey Barnfield.

Please eat the kid and horrible writers now !

Bad writing that gives a bad name to bad writing.

I suspect this was written by some hacks that were doing drugs or smashed out of their minds... or else trying to write a parody of bad f rate movies. I took it as the latter just to get through it.

Perhaps it is supposed to be a comedy horror like "Scary Movie" but many of the characters are written so badly that it comes off as written by high school dropouts. The bad CGI and rubber monsters is laughable but probably not intentionally funny. SyFy has done many fun movies (like Sharnado) but they have smart, funny writing... this does not. It plays out as if someone had a few days to churn out a sequel and no real budget.

I want to see an alternate scene where the kid slips, falls in the lake and is eaten in one bite. They SPOILER kill the dog but not the kid? Some of these characters are so stupid it is amazing they managed to be as old as they are. In a weird turn, the stupid kids somehow manages to transform into Magyver. I guess they wanted to redeem the stupid kid so he is suddenly is useful.

Inane characters and stupider plot lines but a few glimmers of good dialogue every so often. Colin Ferguson and Michael Ironside do the best they can with the script and Yancy Butler gets in a few good lines but most seem like too stupid to be anything but croc snacks.

Most of the time I am cheering on the crocs.

Instead of just one giant croc, they have two large ones and several ones as they go after several groups (teens, croc hunter, family) where the plots intermingle.

SyFy has lots of fun movies but this seems unintentionally funny (WTF type, not Simpsons or Scary Movie funny).

Pretty Much the Same as Its Predecessor—Only Worse

This movie begins with two hikers venturing into the Black Lake Wildlife Area and deciding to go for a swim. They are quickly devoured by hungry crocodiles. The scene then shifts to a young married couple by the names of "Nathan Bickerman" (Colin Ferguson) and "Susan Bickerman" (Kirsty Mitchell) taking up residence in a small cabin by the lake with their young son named "Connor" (Jordan Grehs). As it so happens Nathan is a zoologist employed by the Black Lake Wildlife Area while Susan works in real estate for the nearby town. This leaves Connor frequently alone or with a babysitter named "Vica" (Bianca Ilich). However, he manages to relieve his boredom by feeding some nearby animals which he adopts as pets. What he doesn't understand is that these crocodiles will happily stay in the vicinity near the cabin as long as they are fed. It's when they aren't fed that they become dangerous to anybody who happens to venture into the area. And soon there are plenty of people who do just that. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this movie suffered from the same problems that plagued the last film. Specifically, the director (Griff Furst) tried to mix comedy with both action and horror in the same manner as his predecessor (David Flores) and pretty much attained the same result—only a little worse. Likewise, the decision to showcase several crocodiles for the sake of more action instead of focusing on just one or two really scary creatures and greater suspense also dampened what could have easily been a decent horror film. But apparently cheap laughs were more important. For those reasons I have rated the film accordingly. Below average.
