    A Fish and Game worker is doing a survey of beavers in a placid lake with the local sheriff when he suddenly becomes half the man he was and dies. Local law enforcement, Fish and Game, and a New York museum worker set out to discover what happened. They are soon joined by an eccentric millionaire who loves crocodiles. Is there a crocodile in the lake? At first few believe that such a thing could be until hard evidence shows up. The Crocodile is not an ordinary one, it is thirty feet in length. The camp is quickly split between those who want to kill it and those who want to save it. To learn it's fate you will have to watch the film. This is a very well-done piece of work. The characters are interesting and there is just enough sarcastic humor to really lighten the mood. Betty White plays a foul-mouthed local resident and her delivery of her "I'm rooting for the crocodile" line is an instant classic. This is a fun film and far from typical. It is not just a giant-lizard-eating-people film. Check it out.

    My wife and I loved this movie! It's designed to be a horror movie, but the cast of characters make it very funny. Plus, the special effects were terrific. I myself am a reptile lover and have studied them most of my life. So, the plot is not too far off of something that could really happen. In fact, you should check out Primeval, which is based on a true story. Also, the movie Rogue from Dimension Extreme was pretty intense and just as good as Primeval. I highly recommend this movie along with Rogue and Primeval! I DON'T, however, recommend Lake Placid 2, it was terrible. None of the same cast and the special effects were horrible. So, don't get suckered into the 2 pack, just buy this one.

    This is a monster movie, but in this case it's a normal gator, of very large size, that somehow got transplanted to a lake in Maine. With Betty White you know you are getting some comedy. And that's what this is - a horror comedy movie. This isn't a 5 star movie, but nevertheless it was a lot of fun. A few extras by Shout make this a nice Blu-ray to own.

    One of my new favorite cheesy horror flicks. I didn't give it a chance when it originally came out. The DVD copy was very poor, but this blu-ray set is worth the upgrade. The film looks great!

    A Little Gem

    At first glance, one would think this is just your average killer croc film. However a witty script and a likable cast of a-holes make this film an 80 minute gem to watch.

    another spoof on the horrible monster movie reminiscent of the Japanese Godzilla genre. Excellent script, super funny, with a nice comfortable cast of recognizable actors

    I enjoy this movie, but was hopping to find an HD version of it or at least a widescreen version for a 16x9 TV ratio.

    Fun gore - Oliver Platt and the Brendan Gleeson going back and forth with one-liners is worth the price

    This is basically Jaws with a croc instead of a shark. A lot of great humor as well.
