Lake Placid 2 (2007), Lake Placid 3 (2010), and Lake Placid: The Final Chapter (2012)

Large man-eating crocodiles begin to once again appear around Black Lake as two males and one aggressive female, which is protecting her nest, wreak havoc on the locals. (Lake Placid 2)

A game warden moves his family to Black Lake, once the site of deadly crocodile attacks. Locals assure him the crocodiles are gone, but his mischievous young son finds a few baby crocs and begins feeding them. They quickly grow into very big adults and start attacking the game warden's family and nearby town. (Lake Placid 3)

Black Lake has been turned into a crocodile sanctuary surrounded by an electric fence. When the fence gets left open one night, a high-school field trip bus unknowingly enters the park. It's up to Reba the poacher and the new town sheriff to save the teens from becoming crocodile chow. (Lake Placid: The Final Chapter)

A genetically-created Anaconda that can regenerate itself due to the Blood Orchid has escaped and must be stopped before it wrecks havoc. (Anacondas: Trail of Blood)

But for those dying to know my thoughts on those ones (I know I know, all two of you), I will just say that I personally love all three, with Lake Placid being my top favorite, followed closely by Anaconadas: Hunt for the Blood Orchid, and lastly the first Anaconda.
Now, SyFy has had it's hand in plenty of other big killer snak…

BloodRayne: The Third Reich (2011)

Immortal half-vampire/half-human vampire slayer Rayne takes her war against the Vampires into World War II, where she must stop a recently-turned Nazi commander from creating an army of Nazi Vampires for Hitler.

REVIEW: Well better late then never, but finally here's my review of the third Uwe Boll BloodRayne epic, BloodRayne: The Third Reich. It's interesting to note that these movies, along with the In the Name of the King trilogy, are some of his more successful film franchises with three films each. Some others, such as Alone in the Dark, Seed, and Rampage, got at least one sequel but these two franchises got three each. 
I may be putting myself before the firing squad here, but I'm actually a bit of a Uwe Boll fan myself, even though I can admit there's probably no reason why I should like them, considering they are in no shape, way, or form good movies, but admittedly they're pretty fun for me to watch.

The story to this BloodRayne entry, while told in a diffe…
