LAKE FEAR 2 (2016) Reviews and overview


‘Get ripped apart on Spring Break’

Lake Fear 2 – aka – Lake Fear 2: The Swamp is a 2016 American horror film directed by Ben Wilder based on a screenplay co-written with Ashley Billington, Sean Therrien and Jesus Roldan. Sydney Ray, Nicholas Kolasinski and Peter Pontone star. ‘Scream Queen’ Linnea Quigley has a cameo role.


It’s March in South Florida. The beach towns are flush with young people looking for action and excitement. For one unlucky group of thrill-seeking spring breakers, their adventure leads to the black waters of the Florida Everglades – a place with mosquitoes the size of birds, snakes as long as school busses and tens of thousands of flesh-ripping alligators.

However, beyond the scope of the traditional predators famous for keeping the glades wild is another phenomenon – one with two legs and an insatiable thirst for killing…


“1. None of the characters were likable, they were tiresome and extremely cliched (the jock, the promiscuous female, the stoner and the hillbilly etc.)
2. The movie seemed to go in one direction then go in another then it just ended up ludicrously – I felt they must have hired, fired, hired, fired and hired writers to continue with the screenplay/plot from where the last writer left off.” Y2Hero
