In 1999, Lake Placid swam in and Syfy quickly went to work creating the franchise. The latest film, Lake Placid: Legacy, is set to premiere this May.
Darrell Roodt directed the film, which stars Joe Pantoliano, Katherine Barrell, Tim Rozon, Sai Bennett, Luke Newton, Craig Stein, and Greg Kriek.
Legacy, “Taking place several years after the events of the original film, Legacy finds the team of young explorers out to reveal the secrets of an area removed from modern-day maps and hidden behind electric fences. However, once they reach the center of the lake, they discover an island that harbors an abandoned facility with a horrific legacy: the island is home to a deadly predator eager to feast on those dumb enough to ignore the warnings.
But before they can turn back, our hapless heroes get dragged into a battle for their lives — and will need to work together if they hope to survive.”
Syfy Wire reports that Lake Placid: Legacy will premiere on Monday, May 28 (Memorial Day) at 9 pm EST.
