Lake Placid 3… Do We Really Need to Talk About This?

I’m a dork. I was totally caught unawares, until I saw promo for Lake Placid 3, that there had even been a Lake Placid 2. I mean, obviously, yeah I know. But talk about direct to obscure video/cable hell. It’s a shame, because the first movie was so good, so well done, that I truly I cringe to think of what’s become of the “franchise” just as I cringe at the need to use the word “franchise.” Seems you can’t just make a good monster movie anymore without some producer getting “II” and “III” blinking like stars in their eyes. And maybe it’s a way to recoup the money spent on special effects. You know, use that same croco-animatronic-odiles again and again.

Lake Placid 3 seems to have all the same ingredients, the same pacing as the first film, plus nearly nekkid teens, for that extra-special direct-to-video touch.

In news no one needs to know, it was Mark Bish, son of the Golden Girls actress Rue McClanahan, that made the decision to take Rue off of life-support

The end for McClanahan began back in November, after a stress test showed she would require bypass surgery. While in recovery, Rue suffered a massive stroke. She was brought home, and therapy seemed to be working, with her recovering motor and language functions. even ex-“Golden Girls” co-star Betty white said she sounded like she would recover fine.

Sadly, on June 2nd, she suffered a brain aneurysm, and was rushed to the hospital.
