  • Lake Placid (1999)

    What can i say? I loved it.... I really did. I was shocked sometimes, then others i was laughing my hole off, example ''That's it! I keep getting hit by heads!'' and ''Oooh, can she stay? We were hoping to mate?'' This is a fantastic horror comedy and i just wanted to know what people thought of it?

    I haven't seen it in a while. I remember I like it a lot. Definitely funny as hell. Nothing beats Betty White cursing.

    "If I had a dick, this is where I'd tell you to suck it."

    Such a classic.

    I enjoyed it, I like some dark comedy mixed with my horror.

          I love it, I own it and I watch it all the time.

          Great Horror/Comedy with moments that you shouldn't really laugh at, such as SPOILER when one of the officer's head is bitten off and the bear is eaten SPOILER but I laughed my head off anyway.

          Betty White is hilarious, and the crocodile looks great

            I also really like this movie. Picked it up for $5 and its worth every penny. Great looking alligator and its been mentioned, but Betty White saying "If I had a dick, this is where Id tell you to suck it" had me rolling on the floor.

              i love this movie, especially oliver platt, i've never not laughed at one of his roles(he killed in the ice harvest), the alligator was kick ass too, it was nice to see another beast aside from the great white get some respect.

              Yep....that's in chapter 9, verse 10. "Thall shalt not fuck with Raptor Jesus"

                Agreed, the animal looking so real topped this movie off perfectly.

                    So, it's "your" horror huh? It's only YOUR'S it only belongs to you? Is that what your trying to say? I suggest you edit your post. *sighs* Anywayyyy, yes this movie is such a classic. Very funny lines. The Betty White cameo was hilarious.

                      I can't believe so many people dig it. I hated it. I thought it was a boring, derivative, brainless trash.....which I normally like just not in this film's case.

                        Yep, it's all mine (j/k).

                        I meant in what I like when I said: my horror.

                          While not great by any stretch of the imagination, Lake Placid is thoroghly entertaining. Pretty good gore, some laughs, and some big crocodiles.

                              Haha... hell yeah Alligator was awesome, Alligator II on the other hand was a big peice of shit (stock alligator footage, and a unnecessary car chase, etc)

I think that the problem may have been, that there was a Stonehenge monument on the stage that was in danger of being crushed by a dwarf. Alright? That tended to understate the hugeness of the object." David St. Hubbins- Spinal Tap
