‘Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys’ to debut on Animal Planet

by Phil Wheat

Looking to get in on the Sharknado phenomenon, Animal Planet has set its own horror film from The Asylum – the same people behind that film, called Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys, set to premiere in the US on Memorial Day weekend.


“There is absolutely nowhere to run, and no one is safe.”

Starring Shannen Doherty (Beverly Hills 90210), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future) and Jason Brooks (Days of Our Lives), Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys is directed by James Cullen Bressack (Hate Crime, Pernicious) and sees the cast battle lampreys – eel-like fish with huge teeth and funnel-shaped mouths – after they slide their way into the city’s sewer system and start terrorizing the residents of a small Michigan town.

Brooks plays Michael, a fish and wildlife expert who moves to the town with his wife, Cate (Doherty), after being summoned by the town mayor, Akerman (Lloyd), to help deal with its attacking fish problem. River Monsters star Jeremy Wade also makes a cameo. But with these blood-suckers on the loose, the town’s residents quickly learn that a casual dip in the pool or routine trip to the toilet can turn deadly as the lampreys hunt for their next victim.

Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys will premiere on Sunday May 25th at 9 p.m. as part of the Animal Planet’s annual Monster Week. Other Monster Week specials include Man-Eating Zombie Cats – about big cats with a thirst for human blood, and a quest to find a giant crocodile tormenting a village in Nature’s Most Wanted.

    ok, here it is. I have been a michigander (one who is from michigan) all 45 years of my life. The small town that they are talking about must be called Ashland where the actual Blood Lake actually is. It’s NW across the state from Detrot and NE of Muskegon. Never once have I heard of a lamprey in that area,
