Thailand has an affinity for giant monster films such as Magic Lizard (1985), Garuda (2004) and countless others. 2023 sees Thailand’s film bring a new giant monster to the forefront in THE LAKE.
“When a mysterious monster emerges from the Mekong River, the northern province of Bueng Kan, Thailand, is suddenly cut-off from the outside world. Officials, scientists and local citizens must mobilize to stop the rampaging Kaiju before it’s too late and the whole town is destroyed. But this monster may not be alone after all…”
IMDB gives a little more insight into the plot:
“A gigantic and bloodthirsty monster emerges from a lake after its egg is stolen and unleashes its fury on a town’s inhabitants, leaving a trail of destruction and death in its wake. The town of Bueng Kan, now cut off from the outside world, must mobilize its officials and citizens, as well as a group of scientists that are in town conducting research, to catch this predator before it’s too late”.
Look for this Hollywood/Thai production to appease both horror and Kaiju film fanatics equally.
The Lake will make its way to select theatres on March 10, 2023, followed by Digital release on March 14th. Blu-ray pre-orders will launch on March 14th. Discs will be available in retail stores on June 13th.
