While portions of the film do work pretty well, you can't help but wonder how much of an improvement a little variation would have had on the entire project.

Lake Placid isn't so bad that it's good; it's so bad that it's really bad.

Is 'Lake Flaccid' too obvious of a pun?

You either find the nasty-minded writing amusing or you don't, and there's nothing left for the film to draw on if you don't.

Ludicrous premise and slim thrills!

It stinks so bad that Buntzen Lake, where this bogus effort was partly filmed, probably still reeks.

Not as imaginatively campy as Tremors and certainly far from as suspenseful or unnerving as Jaws.

Without the sarcastic wit of television mega-talent of David E. ("Emmy") Kelley, this lowbrow horror entry might have been titled Lake Flaccid.

Far from being a great film, but it's a guilty pleasure for sure.

It's not a bad little flick, although there's nothing in it to prescribe it for the big screen. A solid rental to be sure.
