Rana: The Legend of Shadow Lake Reviews
(1975) Rana: The Legend of Shadow Lake
Almost like a carbon copy of "Creature From The Black Lagoon" which centers on a man telling a story about a particular lake on a island. The next scene introduces a female paleontologist on an exploration looking for old amphibians, and she is guided by a young man who knows about the island including the lake. As it turns out, it is soon discovered that "Shadow Lake" is one of the oldest lakes known to man since the rare species it has. There's also an old geezer who lives there as well, as he guards the island and tries to scare anyone who he thinks are trespassers who're 3 loggers in a quest to find gold unaware that it's being protected by a frog like amphibian which viewers don't get to see until near the end.
Low budget, bad acting and some inconsistencies regarding someone hurt or a person's death is often used all the time for avoiding to get help. Watching this movie is like a bad dream with inconsistencies.
