Syfy took a big bite out of the ratings with its recent broadcast of LAKE PLACID 3…but wasn’t able to show the complete, uncut version. The full unrated edition is heading for DVD, and the red-band trailer can be seen after the jump!
LAKE PLACID 3—which became the most-watched Syfy/Sci Fi program since 2005, drawing in over 3.1 million viewers—arrives on disc October 26 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, replete with “graphic violence and full frontal nudity” teased in the not-safe-for-work preview seen below. Colin Ferguson from Syfy’s EUREKA stars as biologist who knows that the perpetrators of brutal killings of people and animals around a country lake are voracious crocodiles, and sets out with a hunting guide (Yancy Butler) to stop them. Of course, there’s a local sheriff (Michael Ironside) around to make trouble by attempting to cover up the killings so as not to impact the tourist trade. Actor-turned-director Griff Furst of The Asylum’s I AM OMEGA and UNIVERSAL SOLDIERS helmed the flick from a script by David Reed; the cast also includes Kacey Barnfield, Kirsty Mitchell and Mark Evans. As of now, the DVD will contain no special features supplementing the 1.78:1 anamorphic transfer with 5.1 Dolby Digital audio; retail price is $24.96.
