Lake Placid (1999)

Steve Miner direct Bridget Fonda, Oliver Platt and Brendan Gleeson in this monster movie where a massive alligator terrorises some middle aged nerds.

The kinda monster movie where nobody wants to kill the predator. Operating just a quaver above what it can get away with. The script is just a smidge smarter than it needs to be, the cast just a smidge more established than is the norm, the jumps just a smidge more unexpected. It is not perfect and certainly never breaks form but you can have forgettable fun here.
