  Delores: If I had a dick, this is where I would tell you to suck it.

    • Just about everything between Hector and Sheriff Hank.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Betty White's character, but that's no surprise.
  • Ho Yay: Quite a bit between Hector and Hank.
  • Sequelitis: Bet you didn't know there was a Lake Placid 2, huh? Or a Lake Placid 3 for that matter. Or that a Lake Placid 4 is on its way.
  • So Bad It's Good: At no point does this film take itself seriously as a horror film, but this trope still applies somewhat.
  • Squick: All of the crocodile's victims are eviscerated, and in one case decapitated, and therefore disgusting.
  • The Scrappy: Kelly, her constant nagging and negativity visibly annoyed the characters and tended to have the same effect on the audience.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: Compared to a lot of killer croc films, Lake Placid features great special effects by both Stan Winston and Digital Domain, that, for the most part hold up. The sequels however not so much, though they do admittedly look better then most Sci-Fi Channel Original films.
