The Lake Gets a US Release Date and a Brand-New Trailer!

Back in April of last year, we brought you a trailer for a Thai kaiju movie called The Lake. The trailer didn’t have English subtitles, but it looked awesome anyway. I was really excited to see this film, but at the time, it didn’t have a US release date. I’ve been anxiously awaiting further news about its stateside release ever since, and I’m happy to report that after 10 months, the wait is finally over. The Lake is going to hit limited theaters on March 10, VOD on March 14, and Blu-ray on May 16.

On top of that, we also got a brand-new trailer for the movie with English subtitles, and in my opinion, it’s even better than the first one. It features a whole bunch of heart-pounding footage we haven’t seen before, and it gives us a better sense of the film’s plot.

And speaking of the plot, along with this new trailer, the distributor also gave us an official plot synopsis for The Lake. So if “giant monster attacks puny humans” isn’t enough and you want to know exactly what this movie is about, here’s a more precise description of it:

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.

That’s basically what I was able to gather from the first trailer and a bit of additional research last year, but it’s good to get official confirmation of the story. Granted, it doesn’t sound like it’s going to break any new ground, but it doesn’t have to. As long as The Lake executes its story well and delivers on the trailer’s promise of awesome kaiju action, it’ll be a winner in my book.
