Hiya creeps! Let me tell ya, nothing goes better with the sweltering days of summer than a nice, crisp glass of ice tea and a blood crazed, Kong sized crocodile mowing through the residents of a small town. And while we just called that a Tuesday back in the bad ol’ days, you can simulate those fun (and or blood) drenched times when you park your self upon your sofa and pop in Scream Factory’s upcomin’ release of Lake Placid on Blu-ray comin’ your way July 8th! Let’s peer deeply into the PR Crystal Ball™ to see what this release has in store for us:
You’ll never know what bit you… It has existed prehistoric times and was worshipped by ancient cultures. It can kill a man with one crushing bite! This summer, one of the world’s oldest creatures has found a new home. Written by David E.
