No. 69 – Lake Placid

Simon Davis’ Sinister Dexter (written by Dan Abnett) cover for prog 1026 vs. theatrical poster for Lake Placid (1999)

There are in fact five Lake Placids in the United States – three in Florida alone, one in New York and one in Texas – and none in Maine, where the film is set, and where none of it was actually shot.

The tag line, “Death Fish!” is likely a nod to Michael Winner’s Death Wish (Paramount Pictures/Columbia Pictures, 1974) series of films, starring Charles Bronson (1921–2003).
