A croc of extras: Scream Factory “LAKE PLACID” Blu-ray details released


A human-hungry crocodile and a foul-mouthed Betty White compete for screen time in Steve Miner’s horror/comedy LAKE PLACID, coming on a Scream Factory Collector’s Edition Blu-ray this summer. Complete specs were announced this afternoon.

Shout! Factory releases the disc July 8, presenting the movie in 1080p high-definition widescreen. Bill Pullman, Bridget Fonda, Oliver Platt and Brendan Gleeson are among those dealing with the rampaging reptile in the David E. Kelley-scripted film, which boasts creature FX by Stan Winston Studio. Special features are:

• “The Making of LAKE PLACID,” featuring new interviews with Miner, Pullman, director of photography Daryn Okada, editor Marshall Harvey, production designer John Willett, FX supervisor Nick Marra and puppeteer Toby Lindala
• Vintage featurette featuring interviews with Fonda, Pullman, Platt, Gleason, White and Miner
• Behind-the-scenes still gallery
• Animatronic croc test footage
• TV spots
• Theatrical trailer

Retail price is $29.93, but the Blu-ray can be pre-ordered for $21.95 at the Shout! Factory website, where the first 300 orders receive an exclusive 18 x 24” poster featuring the newly commissioned cover art.
