More Monster Movies

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 28th, 2006

According to Fangoria, coming soon in 2007 to the SciFi Channel, these movies will screen: Yeti: Curse of the Snow Demon, an American World Pictures from a script by Rafael Jordan, and Lake Placid II, more about giant crocs in Maine, from Sony Pictures. Both sound enjoyable. Please, bring back more drive-ins.

By the way, Lake Placid from 1999 was set in Maine, but filmed in North Carolina. We do have lakes, trees, monsters, and really not that much snow in Maine, especially from June to August. Actors actually like our state. So do writers. Hollywood, how about shooting in Maine, not in those other places for our movies, for Maine-location flicks?

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    I’m still waiting for the rewrite of the first Lake Placid, where someone actually tries to explain how crocodiles survive the winter in Maine….

  3. jjames1 responds:

    Loren, the reason few films and TV shows are shot in Maine is that other states have far more favorable tax breaks for productions. North Carolina and Louisiana are two examples of states that have gone out of their way to attract productions by offering favorable financial situations.

  4. Loren Coleman responds:

    Matt: They do hibernate well, apparently in cryptofiction films. You can put any poikilothermic animal in the fridge without harming it, right? Why not in the mud around the side of a Maine lake? Alligators hibernate in burrows during cold weather. In Lake Placid, Maine (a location that doesn’t exist), the winters are mild, the cows are wholesome and juicy for crocodilian dinners, and the cover from Maine hunters is vast.

    As to JJames, yes, sadly, I know, I know. Wishful thinking on my part. Besides, people think it is so cold in Maine, even though it is obvious shooting won’t happen (usually) during February here. Still, Stephen King has been happy to film here.


  5. MattBille responds:

    Stephen King has the clout to film anywhere he wants 🙂
    I was born in Bangor, by the way, but have not visited the state since 1988. I recall it as being darn cold in the winter, but I suppose childhood is not the best source for accurate data.

    Hmm… not sure about the reptiles, though. If crocodilians could adapt to higher latitudes, they would have done so somewhere in the world, don’t you think?

    If anyone is interested in old, BAD Bigfoot movies, you might want to check out the “Bigfoot Terror” 4 movie DVD being released by Image Entertainment on June 20, 2006. The set contains the 70’s “Shriek Of The Mutilated” and “Search For The Beast”, as well as the Ivan Marx “documentary”, “The Legend Of Bigfoot”, and the ultra-cheesy, no-budget-wonder “Capture Of Bigfoot”. Most of the bigger DVD sites should have it available for pre-order.
    (If this site has an associates account at Amazon, perhaps someone should set up a link to the DVD somewhere on the site.)

    This should look good on the shelf next to the “Sasquatch Horror Collection”.

  8. Jeremy_Wells responds:

    Speaking of the links to Amazon from this site, I was trying to order Loren’s “Field Guide to Bigfoot and Other Mystery Primates” from a link here, and ended up with the VERY thin “Field Guide to Sasquatch.”
    I guess I became confused, when I browsed over to Amazon, by the fact that it was offered as a package deal with Loren’s “Bigfoot the true story of apes in America” (which I ordered too, along with a sea-monster book, to get free shipping), and I’m going to keep it, I suppose.
    But now I’m going to have to go back on payday and order the book I actually wanted.
    *sigh* You’re breaking me up here Loren!
