Scream Factory recently announced its plans for a blu-ray release of the cult favorite horror/black comedy item Ravenous – and that’s not the only 20th Century Fox horror release from 1999 that they have planned for this summer. July will see the release of Lake Placid, a giant alligator tale from erstwhile t.v. show creator David E. Kelley. This offbeat yet well-budgeted tale features an impressive cast: Bill Pullman, Bridget Fonda and Oliver Platt all appear in the film as well as Betty White in a pretty funny character role. Read for all the croc-carnage details, including a list of the disc’s special features…

Written by David E. Kelley, directed by Steve Miner, and co-starring Betty White as the cantankerous Mrs. Bickerman, this terrifying tale of survival “combines humor and thrills with remarkable deftness” (New York Post).
