Scream Factory’s announcements just keep rolling in. The latest news is that Lake Placid will be released later this year as a collector’s edition Blu-ray:
“Are you ready to devour another release from us? Well here’s a monstrous one for you…
The crocodile-chompin’- Betty-White-swearin’ film LAKE PLACID will be coming from us as a Collector’s Edition this Summer, which also marks its first time on Blu-ray! Released in 1999 and directed by Steve Miner (Friday the 13th Parts 2 & 3, Halloween: H20) this humorous take on the tried-and-true menacing reptile story stars Bridget Fonda (Single White Female), Bill Pullman (The Serpent and the Rainbow) and Oliver Platt (2012). Also notable, the film was written by famous TV Producer/Screenwriter David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal, L.A. Law, Boston Legal).
While we can’t provide a street date at this time, expect this to drop in Mid-Summer. Pre-order links should go up in sometime in April. Look for a full list of extras sometime in May. New key art is also coming soon too but the image you see here – the original theatrical poster – will be on the reverse,
Our “Summer of Fear” is certainly starting to shape up. Starting in May, our releases include Final Exam, Evilspeak, Nosferatu (1979), Sleepaway Camp, Ravenous, Dog Soldiers, Hellhole, Deadly Eyes, Ginger Snaps, Phantom of the Paradise and now this. And, believe it or not, we still have more coming!”
